Employment

For Employers

Our employment experts will work closely with employers, providing advice on employment law on both a day-to-day basis and when addressing specific problems. Where there is no specialist HR resource, we can fulfil the function in providing expert advice on specific elements such as disciplinary action, performance, capability, conduct and sickness. We also understand that with employment law frequently changing and becoming ever more complex employers may require help when drafting policies and implementing changes within the workforce and to this end we can:

  • Prepare contracts tailored to your business needs
  • Provide training for managers on implementing any changes
  • Prepare policy documentation
  • Advise on all manner of day to day employment issues
  • Negotiate settlements in an attempt to avoid the need to attend tribunal hearings

We always aim to resolve matters without you incurring expensive litigation, whenever possible. We seek to ensure that disputes are resolved before an employee commences employment tribunal proceedings and if proceedings are issued, our employment law experts have the experience to guide you through the process in the most cost effective manner.

For Employees

We appreciate that as an employee dealing with your employer (or your ex-employer) can be daunting and stressful.

If you think you have a claim, it’s essential that you seek advice as soon as possible because there are strict timescales in which to make a claim. As experts in Employment Law we can guide you through this minefield and assist you with your claim.

We will ensure you are represented on an equal basis and that your rights and position are protected.

It is in your interests to have one firm able to represent you from initial consultation through to representation at an Employment Tribunal hearing; we do provide that expertise. We advise in relation to all aspects of your employment rights, including:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Wrongful dismissal
  • Redundancy
  • Unlawful discrimination
  • Harassment and victimisation
  • Equal Pay
  • Unlawful deduction of wages
  • Breach of Contract
  • Transfer of an Undertaking – how your rights are affected if your employer’s business is sold
