Confidentiality and Privacy
Before you receive any formal advice or services you will be advised of the conditions of service and you will need to sign your agreement to these conditions.
Consultants are experienced and qualified to provide HR and Employment Law advice. HR Consultants are members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD). Confidential advice is offered in good faith, based on the information provided to them by you. Consultants will make every effort to provide advice which is accurate and up to date in relation to current employment law. From time to time, in very complex cases, case conferences and research may be undertaken to ensure you are being offered the very best professional advice at all times. Where this is required, your details will not be shared and you will only be referred to by client reference number. You details will only be disclosed if ordered to do so by a court of law.
During a consultation, the Consultant will make written notes and will also maintain an electronic record of advice and discussions. All written documentation will be either destroyed or secured at the end of each working day.
Note: If you choose to provide feedback or a testimonial about our services at VenusHR Ltd, you agree that this can be publicised.

For business clients, you may choose to tailor your feedback accordingly if our services have involved complex disciplinary matters. We will only use the business name and the home town of the business. In order to ensure your privacy is protected, feedback will only be publicised after it is reviewed and approved by VenusHR Ltd.

VenusHR Ltd will keep all of your personal information strictly confidential in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1988.
