Employment Law

Employment legislation is complex and keeping abreast of the latest changes can be challenging and also present a substantial risk if not understood correctly. Our team of employment law experts advise both employees and employers on all aspects of employment law from contract drafting, negotiations through ACAS, procedure and documentation review and employment relations.

Many employment disputes are now settled through negotiation with the aim of reaching a balanced solution for both parties. However should a case reach an employment tribunal, our specialists have the expertise to advise and support you through the process.

Our services

We advise on all aspects of employment law including;

  • Unfair dismissal claims including constructive dismissal
  • Discrimination claims including sex, race, age and disability
  • Maternity rights/parental rights
  • Redundancy
  • Settlement Agreements
  • Grievance and discipline procedures
  • Contracts of employment/employee handbooks
  • Dealing with long term sickness including stress
  • TUPE (Transfer of Undertaking Regulations)

Our experience

Our employment team has a proven track record of advising employers and employees in all aspects of employment relations.

We can help and advise from the early stages of putting contracts into place for new employees and new businesses all the way through to assisting with problems arising from disputes between employer and employees.

We can advise on small or large claims and assist with negotiations through ACAS and help with preparation of best practice documents for ensuring that you have a set of up to date procedures to hand.

We also have a wide range of experience in dealing with cases ranging from disability discrimination; including for example an employee who was unfairly dismissed because of mental health issues from which she had completely recovered to employees dismissed because of childcare responsibilities, along with cases relating to sex-discrimination, disputes over bonus payments and flexible working.

We can also assist with the difficult and sometimes sensitive area of terminating the employment relationship.

Why choose us?

We pride ourselves on providing good common sense advice with a view to the practicalities as well as the letter of the law. We are used to working to tight deadlines as this is very often necessary in employment law cases.
