Employment

Current and effective service and advice

Our Employment team advises employers and employees in both contentious
and non-contentious matters including:

  • policy and procedure;
  • employment contracts;
  • redundancy and TUPE;
  • discrimination;
  • parental, maternity and paternity rights;
  • disciplinary and grievance issues and procedures;
  • stress and bullying at work;
  • unfair dismissal;
  • severance payments;
  • compromise agreements;
  • changes in contractual terms;
  • whistleblowing;
  • pay issues; and
  • representation at the Employment Tribunal


Employers:

We advise employers on all aspects of policy and procedure in employment including
drafting employment contracts and policy documents. Employment law evolves
at speed and regular policy reviews save the employer time and expense.

Faced with a claim by an employee, our expert team provides practical and commercial
advice, considering a compromised settlement where appropriate.  In the event that
an Employment Tribunal hearing is unavoidable, our team has a strong record in
defending such claims.

Employees:

We advise on all aspects of the employer/employee relationship. If you have a claim
or claims against your employer, we can represent you at the Employment Tribunal. 
Our team will always first consider whether there is a way to achieve objectives
without involving the time, expense and anxiety of Tribunal proceedings.
