Employment problems

We appreciate that your job and career represent an important part of your life and you expect to be treated fairly. We act for employees at all stages of their careers and working lives and have experience and knowledge of the full range of employment law issues across the full spectrum of industry sectors. There are very few situations that we have not previously encountered and our experienced employment lawyers know how best to protect your interests in a straightforward and focused manner.

We advise employees at all levels and our advice is coherent, practical and informed. During your employment we can guide you through the complexities of the various different parental leave entitlements including maternity, paternity and shared parental leave, as well as flexible and part time working. You may also need help and advice if you think you are the victim of discrimination at work or if you are faced with grievance or disciplinary proceedings. We also deal with unfair dismissal and redundancy cases. Our approach is straightforward and pragmatic: at all times we will explore your objectives and work with you to try and achieve them.

If you are starting a new job or role you may need guidance on a new contract. Alternatively you may need advice on your rights under an existing contract. We will provide coherent, sensible advice tailored to you.

We also deal with bonus arrangements, share options and other employee incentive schemes, benefits in kind and pensions. We can help if you want to move on, advising and negotiating on settlement agreements to try and ensure you leave your employment on the best possible terms. We also advise on TUPE transfers and claims.

We recognise that employment law problems can be as stressful as a relationship breakdown. Our employment lawyers are sympathetic and experienced in handling these difficult, and often, sensitive situations and are skilled at finding practical solutions.
