Employment Law

Employment Law is a fast-paced environment requiring experienced and knowledgeable advisers to steer you away from the many pitfalls that your business will face.

Our Employment Team work closely with clients with a view to understanding the specific requirements of their business and becoming an integral part of the management decision-making process.

Guiding a business through the changing world of employment law is challenging for all employers. The risks of not taking expert advice can include financial cost, loss of management time, civil or criminal penalties and reputational damage.

The aim of our Team is to assist clients by, where possible, anticipating employment law issues before they become problems.

It is not always possible to prevent problems arising, and, in those circumstances, our Team provide high quality, practical advice and support to a range of organisations..

Our clients range from global corporate organisations to SME businesses and include providers of professional services, education, energy, retail, hospitality, haulage  and construction…

In addition to providing expert advice we offer a selection of bespoke seminars and training. Our programme of seminars provides practical examples of the way in which employment law impacts upon your business and our recommended procedures for minimising legal risk.

The training programme is designed to be interactive to ensure that individual managers and HR staff obtain maximum benefit from the sessions.  All of our trainers are solicitors with experience of advising employers and senior executives on a range of legal issues.

The training topics include:-

  • Drafting terms and conditions for your business;
  • Recruitment and retention of staff;
  • Dealing with disciplinary and grievance matters;
  • Fair dismissal of employees;
  • Protecting your business from commercial threat
  • Regulating the use of social media
