HRspy Blog

@HRspy London

A light hearted blog from our employment practice uncovering some of the weird and wonderful issues that arise in the world of Human Resources.

Most of the issues covered in the blog are based (very loosely - to protect the innocent and the not so innocent) on matters that members of the practice have been consulted about at some point or another. Many of the scenarios you simply couldn’t make up….. so HRspy doesn’t.
