Employment law

Employment law is a complex and ever changing area that is often confusing for both business owners and employees.

As a business owner or manager you may not have the time or resources to ensure you fully understand all areas of the law enough to remain fully compliant and avoid potential pitfalls. Equally, as an employee, you may struggle to fully understand your legal rights, and the procedures involved in tribunals can seem daunting without expertise.

We can assist businesses with all areas of employment law to provide reassurance and protect against potential claims. We can also advise employees on their rights and guide them through difficulties that occur at work. This includes a workplace mediation service, which can provide a welcome alternative to the conflict, anxiety, stress, effort and risk of a conventional approach.

The areas in which we can provide expert advice includes:

  • Breach of contract
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Contracts of employment
  • Data protection
  • Directors’ service agreements
  • Disciplinary action
  • Discrimination (age/disability/race/religious belief/sex/sexual orientation)
  • Employment tribunals
  • Grievance procedures
  • Redundancy
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Settlement agreements
  • Staff handbooks
  • Transfer of undertakings (TUPE)
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Whistle blowing
