Employment law

Over recent years, employment law has become increasingly detailed and procedural and it can be very easy for employers to inadvertently fall foul of it. We provide expert advice to many businesses in a variety of sectors on all aspects of employee relationships. In doing so we understand the need to provide a cost effective and proactive service designed to avoid disputes.  As an employer you need to ensure that your strategies and documentation remain fit for purpose. You want to get the best from your workforce and to protect your interests. You may want to expand or restructure and we can help you avoid the many pitfalls along the way. We can help with settlement agreements, advise on redundancy terms, restrictive covenants in employment contracts and on how best to protect your business against a disaffected employee.

Our lawyers are experienced in drafting employment contracts and can assist you with handbooks and employment strategies and can ensure that your employment policies are and remain focused and compliant.

Unfortunately, whatever measures you put in place, you may find yourself before an employment tribunal. We will provide a practical and realistic assessment of your prospects and advise on the best way forward. This will be delivered in a cost effective manner with clear information about our fees.
