Services for Employers

Our employment team are knowledgeable and experiences in employment practices and procedures, which can save you and your business considerable time and money further down the line.
If any disputes do arise, you have a much better chance of achieving a resolution without the issue escalating to costly and disruptive Employment Tribunal proceedings.
However, should the need arise then we can defend you against any potential claims. We offer expert advice on all aspects of the employer/employee relationship including:
• Advice on day-to-day operations (such as recruitment, evaluation, absences, and termination)
• Basic employment law advice
• Compliance and regulations
• Conflict dispute resolution (including Employment Tribunal proceedings)
• Contract drafting and reviews
• Policy and procedure advice

We Serve the Best Work

Our team of solicitors are available to provide you with advice on your employment rights which can help you settle any issues that arise during your employment, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Discrimination (related to sex, race, disability, age, religion, and sexual orientation)
  • Redundancy, layoffs and short working hours.
  • Directors Service Agreements
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Settlement agreements and termination packages
  • Variations in a contract of employment e.g., salary/wage reductions
  • Harassment and bullying claims
  • Maternity rights
  • Paternity rights
  • Whistleblowing

Our team can discuss your current situation and advise you on your rights, as well as the options available to you. If necessary, we will write to your employer and represent you at an Employment Tribunal.

It is important to note that there can be several appropriate reasons for employee dismissal, including:

  • Redundancy within the business
  • Employee capability, capacity, performance, or qualifications
  • Employee conduct or gross misconduct

We always advise our clients to keep records of all communications with their employer, including any conversations, emails, and letters that have been exchanged.

Using our wide range of legal knowledge and expertise, we have successfully defended clients in a range of criminal and fraud related matters. Our approach is to be proactive and work with you to deliver successful outcomes as cost-efficiently and promptly as possible.

We will clearly explain the range of legal options available and guide you towards the option which would be best suited for your specific circumstances and objectives.
