People are the most crucial part of any business and we recognise that as such the relationship between organisations and their employees are important to the success of a business. We also recognise that when problems occur this can mean distraction, cost and delay for your business.
We work with employers and senior employees and have expertise in all aspects of employment law. We can work with in-house teams, and on retained basis, but our experience goes beyond day to day HR matters and extends to areas such as employment and pensions law to employee incentive arrangements and advising in contentious cases where our teams regularly appear before Employment Tribunals and all levels of Courts.
We advise on a range of issues including settlement agreements, TUPE and employment contracts. The ever-increasing complexity of employment legislation, particularly the implementation of the European Directives, places a heavy burden on employers and employees.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Agency workers
- Contract of Employment
- Contractor & Consultancy Agreements
- Compromise & Settlement Agreements
- Equal pay & Flexible Working
- Maternity, Paternity rights & Parental leave
- Restrictive covenants
- TUPE (Business Takeovers and Mergers)
- Minimum Wage & Working Time Regulations
- Disciplinary and grievance procedure
- Wrongful dismissal and breach of contract
- Unfair dismissal, Redundancy & Discrimination
- Tribunal Claims
