What is GatekeeperHR?

GatekeeperHR is a tailored, fixed cost, employment law and HR solution for your business, delivered by Rix & Kay’s dedicated team of lawyers and HR professionals.

For more information download our GatekeeperHR guide or email

Today, businesses are recognising the value of having access to specialist HR advice, but are often concerned about the quality of service delivered by a telephone helpline and the lack of specialist legal advice, should the need arise.

GatekeeperHR is different and provides access to a dedicated team of experienced lawyers and HR professionals who you can speak to, or meet face-to-face, at any time. And, unlike many other providers, we don’t tie you into lengthy contracts that are difficult to exit. We simply charge a single fixed fee on a monthly basis, helping you to manage your costs and budget effectively.

GatekeeperHR – what is included?

  • Access to a dedicated team of lawyers and HR professionals
  • A full HR compliance audit
  • A half-day training programme once a year, held at your offices, covering key employment law issues.
  • Attendance at twice yearly employment law seminars held across three locations and via online platforms
  • Regular employment law eBulletins sent direct to your inbox
  • Access to our professional concierge network including mental health training platforms, pensions and payroll specialists and specialist employment protection insurance to cover against employment
    tribunal claims.

GatekeeperHR online Portal

All GatekeeperHR clients are provided with online access to our GatekeeperHR portal which includes a library of HR documentation, guidance notes and checklists, alongside training vlogs and blogs.

How much does it cost?

No two businesses are the same, so we don’t promote a one-size-fits-all solution. Our approach is to discuss your requirements, so we can better understand your business. This allows us to help you consider a package that best supports the needs of your business and works with your budget.

Typically, fees are calculated according to the number of employees in your business and the size of any existing HR function. As a guide, the cost of our standard GatekeeperHR offering, for a business with 20 or fewer staff, starts from £150 + VAT per month.

Additional services that complement our standard offering

Many of our GatekeeperHR clients require a greater level of support and opt for additional services that sit alongside, or can be separate from, our standard offering.

Services include:

  • Gatekeeper In-House HR – Professional HR support delivered on-site as part of your team.
  • Strategic employment law advice – covering TUPE transfers; director disputes and employment tribunals.
  • Company secretarial & registered office service.
