Employment

We work proactively to develop the best strategies for you to deal with the complex issues that arise from employment law.

WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

We provide the full range of employment services to clients that range from start ups to recognised household names. Our breadth of experience enables us to build teams at the right level to meet your needs and our approach allows you to get on with your day to day business in the knowledge that issues are being dealt with.

Contracts, policies & procedures

Getting the basics right is important in order to avoid the time and cost of potential conflict and having clear contracts, policies and procedures is essential. We will draft tailored terms and conditions which are right for your business and advise you on the correct application of those policies. 

Telephone helpline

Seeking the right advice at the right time is the best way to minimise the risk of claims. We are on hand to provide you when you need it with advice and solutions for your employment problems.

In all cases we will help you to find the most commercially viable solution to your problems whilst reducing the risk of claims. We will help you to achieve your commercial goals by the best and safest route. 

Training & engagement

It is increasingly important to ensure that your staff, and your managers and key personnel in particular, are trained and knowledgeable in the rules, procedures and policies associated with employment law and that your employees feel positively about their working environment and are engaged with your business.

Restructures & redundancies

Whatever restructure you are going through, whether redundancy or TUPE process, your business will be changing. In order to achieve the new structure you need, we can provide you with the right level of support throughout any consultation process whether with employees or unions.

Tribunal claims

When faced with the reality of an employment tribunal claim you need focussed, effective and commercially sound advice from someone who understands both you and the law. Our team of experienced employment lawyers take the time to get to know you and your business, so that if you are faced with the prospect of a claim you know that it is in safe hands.

Beyond this, we appreciate that the cost and efforts needed to address such claims are an unwelcome burden, we aim to ease that burden by offering a clear fee structure from the outset so there are no nasty surprises when the time comes to pay your bill.

Investigations & hearings

The number of employee grievances continues to grow, disciplinary investigations and hearings accumulate and appeals have to be heard. Getting any of the processes wrong can be very expensive and unnecessary delays in scheduling hearings are frowned upon by tribunals.

As a team we work with many businesses taking away the distraction of internal procedures from their managers and ensuring an objective and legally sound outcome which will help to protect your business by stepping in to manage these processes for you.

Online Strategy

Many employers incorporate social media throughout their business strategy, whether in marketing their business or recruiting the right candidates. With no specific regulation of the use of social media by employees or employers in our national laws, the opportunity is there for you to tailor your policies on social media to fit your business with well thought out policies which are adapted to your needs but are consistent with general employment, data protection and privacy laws. However, without clear and consistent policies in place resolving issues and disputes with employees regarding their use of social media can pose a complex challenge which our employment team is becoming increasingly accustomed to facing.

Whether you believe that prevention is better than cure, or whether you are faced with an issue linked to an employee’s social media use, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that we will present a strategy that meets your goals.
