My HR Advisor Information is not a Substitute for Legal Advice
My HR Advisor provides a platform for internet-based HR Consulting and Publishing, providing general HR information, document templates and other items, and is for use by employers only.
The information and documents provided by My HR Advisor along with the content on our Website related to employment law is provided for your private use and does not constitute legal advice from qualified lawyers and should not be relied upon as such. We cannot guarantee that Information is correct, current or up-to-date, or suitable for every situation. HR consultants will review any information you provide us with for accuracy or sufficiency, or apply best practice to the specific facts of your situation.
The documents available on the Website are customisable templates reasonably fit for use by you as a starting point for the preparation of HR documents. They are only intended to be used as templates, to be adapted by you to meet your individual requirements. Therefore, if you need legal advice for your specific problem please consult an employment lawyer.
Your use of the Website does not create a lawyer-client relationship between you and My HR Advisor, or between you and any My HR Advisor employee or representative and you are responsible for representing yourself in any legal matter you undertake through our Website, unless you are otherwise represented by a lawyer.
When you use our Website, you will have the opportunity to submit HR-related questions via our HR Advice service (“Questions”).
Questions may be answered by HR Consultants employed by My HR Advisor or on a consultancy basis by My HR Advisor.
After you submit a Question:
- for simple matters, an answer will be provided by a HR Consultant (a “Simple Answer”); or
- for more complicated matters we may recommend you contact an Employment Lawyer.
You agree with us that the Simple Answers do not constitute legal advice and that no duty of care will be established (either in tort or in contract) between you and the HR Consultant we connect you with.
We reserve the right to reject questions you ask without providing a reason. However, our reasons for rejecting questions are typically that:
- we do not undertake that type of work;
- we do not presently have anyone available who undertakes that type of work;
- you are unable or unwilling to pay for the work required;
- there are ethical, regulatory or other reasons to refuse (for example a suspicion of money laundering, conflict of interest, insurance issues); or
- your case is too complex or difficult or we do not have the relevant skills and experience.
Your use of HR Advice is subject to you using the service fairly and in line with the membership option you have subscribed to. However, in the event you do genuinely encounter more than the number of advice questions in a single month, we aim to be reasonable and also help you with this issue (at our complete discretion).
A My HR Advisor subscription gives you access to the specified services for a year.
If you are enrolled in the My HR Advisor annual payment subscription, your subscription will end on the day prior to the anniversary of subscribing. Should you wish to continue using the services, you will need to choose a new subscription on the Website and set up a new payment plan or pay in full.
If you are enrolled in the My HR Advisor monthly payment subscription, following the minimum contractual period of 12 months, the membership will continue on a month by month basis at which point you may choose to cancel your plan at any time before the date of the next monthly renewal. You must give us 14 days notice of your intent to cancel the membership. If you do so, you will be charged to the end of the month, during which time you will continue to have access to the Website and services.
Except as set out below, there are no refunds or credits for partial months.
Cancellation of your membership
Annual memberships that have been paid for upfront and in full will automatically end at the end of the 12-month subscription and no further payments will be due unless you choose to subscribe to a new membership.
Monthly plans will automatically renew every month until cancelled by you. Unless you notify us 14 days before the renewal date of the membership that you wish to cancel, your subscription will automatically renew following the minimum contractual period of 12 months. All cancellation requests must be sent via email to [email protected]
We reserve the right to change our pricing from time to time, but our price changes will always be prospective and not retroactive.
Price increases will only impact new membership subscriptions and not current subscriptions. Where a membership has expired, the member will need to renew their membership at the current price at the time of sale.
From time to time, we may also offer different subscription terms and membership benefits.
Except as set out below, membership fees are non-refundable.
Payment processing services on the Website are provided by Stripe Payments Europe, Ltd trading as Stripe (“Stripe”) and are subject to the Stripe Connected Account Agreement, which includes the Stripe Services Agreement – United Kingdom.

If you are enrolled in a My HR Advisor subscription and fail to provide a full subscription payment on time or if we are unable to charge your designated payment method for any reason, we reserve the right to suspend your paid membership until your designated payment method can be charged again.
A Failed Payment means an outstanding payment for which Stripe, as instructed by the My HR Advisor, has been unable to make a successful charge against the payment details provided by you.
In the case of a Failed Payment still being outstanding 24 hours after the payment is due, you authorise My HR Advisor automatically to instruct Stripe to retry the charge.
You have 14 (fourteen) calendar days (the Statutory Period) from the date you signed up to cancel your membership and be eligible for a refund.
If you cancel your membership before the end of the Statutory Period, you may request a refund of any fee paid. Any request for a refund has to be made before the end of the Statutory Period otherwise you will not be entitled to a refund.
If you request a refund before the end of the Statutory Period, we reserve the right to deduct fees representing the number of days you have used the service to the date of cancellation. In this case, your membership will come to an end on the date of cancellation. To request a refund, please contact us at [email protected]
No refund shall be paid under any of the following circumstances:
- The Statutory Period has lapsed and we correctly collected a fee for any active membership or other subscription service;
- The collection of any fee for any single (or multiple) document(s) following your express consent to receiving the document during the Statutory Period and acknowledgement of your right to cancel being lost; or
- The collection of any fee for your use of the HR Advisor service during the Statutory Period, and in such circumstances you acknowledge that your right to cancel has been lost.
