Bumpd does not provide legal advice. Bumpd is not a law firm, and we are not your lawyer. Our website and our app are not a substitute for legal advice.
If at any stage you feel unsure about your legal position or what to do, we recommend you speak to a lawyer. You can either hire a lawyer privately, or otherwise the services listed below provide no-cost legal advice in relation to employment matters.
Please note that Bumpd is not affiliated with any of these support services.
