Employment

We recognise that all companies adopt a slightly different approach to employee management. You may operate a full internal human resources team, or employ a single HR Manager who, like most small businesses, might just be you, the boss. From time to time, most businesses require professional legal advice for at least some employment issues. In the long run, it can save you time and money.

Our Employment Team can apply their extensive knowledge, skills and experience to help resolve the specific issues which you are facing, and provide as much or as little help as you require. We recognise that there are various complexities in any employment situation, and will analyse the issues and make the most suitable recommendations. Dependent upon the situation, options may involve legal processes or a solution designed to avoid legal conflict, such as a form of mediation.

Our Employment Team provides practical advice on all employment law issues including:-

  • Contracts of employment
  • Data Protection
  • Disciplinary action and grievance procedures
  • Discrimination for sex, race, disability, age and religion or belief
  • Employment Tribunals
  • Family friendly policies
  • Maternity leave
  • Minimum wage
  • Paternity leave
  • Redundancy and dismissal
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Service agreements
  • Trade unions
  • Transfer regulations upon company acquisitions
  • TUPE including indemnities and warranties
