The legal helpline is currently experiencing unprecedented demand due to GDPR enquiries – whilst we are doing everything we can to respond quickly to member enquiries, including providing access to additional legal support where relevant, please expect a longer waiting time than usual.
Members are advised to consult our GDPR resources which include updated model documents, terms and conditions before calling the helpline to avoid unnecessary delays. For all other queries, please consult our legal guide.
The legal helpline is available to REC corporate members:
Monday - Thursday, 8.30am – 5.30pm
Friday, 9.30am – 5pm
Please have your corporate membership number to hand as you will need to quote this when accessing legal advice.
