Employment

Employment law is growing and evolving faster than ever before, and can often be a minefield for both employers and employees – frequently resulting in disputes. But litigation can be avoided – whether through implementing new procedures and policies, or through mediation.

We advise both employers and employees, prior to and during the employment relationship, and after it ends – for whatever reason.

Whether through a failure to implement the proper procedures and policies, or in the course of grievance, disciplinary or dismissal proceedings, employment issues can be disruptive and a drain on your business’ resources, both in terms of time spent and costs incurred.

Whether your aim is to fight or defend the court or tribunal claim or to negotiate a satisfactory settlement, or just to obtain reassurance and advice on whether something is being handled correctly, we are here to provide you with pragmatic and cost effective advice.

We will provide robust, commercial and comprehensive advice on the whole range of employment issues including your internal staff procedures; employment contracts and restrictive covenants; grievance, disciplinary and dismissal issues; harassment and discrimination claims; unfair-, wrongful- and constructive dismissal claims; redundancy and termination of employment; and compromise agreements.
