    Our team of lawyers specialise exclusively in employment law. They are highly experienced in helping employers prepare for tribunals and, where necessary, can represent them.

    If one of your employees presents a claim to an employment tribunal it's important to take advice from experts to ensure the best possible outcome.

    Where possible we'll assist with negotiations to try and resolve issues without the need for a tribunal hearing. In cases where a hearing can't be avoided, we can help minimise the amount of managerial time spent on defending the claim.
     
     
     
    We recognise that employment law problems can be extremely stressful for the individual. If you believe your employer has treated you unfairly, we can advise you. Our objective is to resolve the dispute to your satisfaction as quickly as possible, minimising stress and legal costs.

    If you're involved in a serious dispute with your current or former employer we can assist you in making a claim to an employment tribunal and help you prepare your case. You don't necessarily need to be legally represented at the tribunal hearing. However if you would like legal assistance, one of our experienced employment lawyers will be glad to help.
     
     
     
    Our experts are available to draft contracts of employment, consultancy agreements and other legal documentation. contact us here to find out more.
     
     
     
    The company handbook has recently assumed a much greater significance.

    One of the most effective ways to develop a good working relationship between an employer and an employee is to establish clear company policies and procedures. For an employer, creating and maintaining an employee handbook, is a straightforward way to do this. A written statement of company procedures gives individual employees and managers consistent guidelines on how to deal with issues that may arise.

    We can help you assemble a document that truly represents your company's policies in a straightforward, accessible way.

    The handbook may cover issues like:

  • timekeeping
  • payroll
  • grievances
  • alcohol and drugs
  • overtime
  • health and safety
  • dress code
  • computer use
  • breaks
  • discipline
  • smoking
  • and email monitoring.

  • It is now mandatory to provide employees with details of disciplinary and grievance procedures. An employee handbook is a sensible place do this, and also to outline your company's intolerance of sexual or racial harassment and discrimination.

    We can make sure your handbook is a clear statement of your company's rules and regulations, and also ensure that your policies comply with the law.
     
     
     
    To ensure that your business is fully compliant with all employment legislation, we can give it an employment law MOT. This will make sure your policies are up to date and minimise the risk of potential claims against you.

    One of our consultants will come out and meet with the relevant managers. This generally takes between half a day and a full day, depending on the size of the business. We'll then carry out a thorough review of all relevant documentation including:

  • disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • company handbook
  • equal opportunity policies
  • consultation and information policies
  • breaks
  • policies for managing and reducing absence
  • email monitoring and internet policies
  • contracts of employment
  • family friendly policies - including flexible working
  • and contracts for service.
  • conformance to working time legislation
  •  

    After carrying out the review we'll provide you with a full report highlighting any areas for improvement.

    If you'd like to find out more about arranging an employment law MOT, for your business contact us here.
     
     
     
    Employment law is often viewed as a headache. New rules arrive in the post and, whilst intentions are good, sometimes important information slips through the net. All too often procedures are only reviewed when something has gone wrong!

    Contesting an employment tribunal claim is time-consuming and costly and deflects focus from your business - factors which are often underestimated.

    We believe that effective training of supervisory and managerial personnel in key aspects of employment law improves employment relations and reduces the possibility of a claim. In response to this need, we've developed a range of short seminars to keep businesses informed about the latest developments in the minefield that is employment law.

    We also offer free seminars on important changes in legislation. To find out more, contact us here.
