A Scottish law firm is providing its human resources clients with an iPhone app to help answer questions about employment law.
The HR Advisor app calculates unfair dismissal costs, provides answers to questions about topics such as maternity and paternity leave and links to helpful government websites, reports the BBC News.
"We have listened very carefully to our HR clients and have developed a practical, useful and relevant app," says employment law partner Graham Mitchell of MacRoberts.
It "addresses the issues HR professionals face every day in an increasingly difficult employment law environment," he says, noting that employment law "is an area in which reliable information is often needed quickly and it lends itself to an information-based system such as HR Advisor."
