Employment law

Employment law is a fast moving, ever changing area of the law and whether you’re an employer or an employee, it’s essential that you know your responsibilities and rights. We have a great deal of experience in acting for both, ensuring that as employers, you are up to date with current legislation and have appropriate contracts, procedures and systems in place and in dealing with a range of issues that can arise during the course of employment. 

Employer’s responsibilities and employee’s rights

Whether you are an employer or employee we can assist with:

  • Employment contract negotiations and restrictive covenants.
  • Redundancy, unfair or wrongful dismissal.
  • Resignation and constructive dismissal.
  • Sex, race, age or disability discrimination.
  • Grievance and disciplinary procedures.
  • Maternity issues.
  • Settlement Agreements.
  • Full representation at employment tribunals and civil courts.

 

Negotiated settlements and employment tribunals

We’ll provide you with straight forward, realistic and practical advice and explore whether it is possible to reach a negotiated settlement, avoiding the need for the cost and stress of legal proceedings.  Any agreement will usually be embodied in a Settlement Agreement setting out the terms which the employer and employee agree, in a way that prevents future legal proceedings.

If, despite our best efforts, the matter does proceed to the Employment Tribunal, we’ll represent you and your interests in a robust and efficient way in order to obtain the best possible result for you.
