Timely cost- effective advice on all employment issues

Work is an important part of life and we appreciate that things don't always run smoothly. Our Employment Team specialises in providing you with advice on all aspects of your employment relationship.

We provide timely, cost-effective advice on your rights in the workplace, how to enforce them and your options when faced with a problem or dispute. We act for clients from all sectors and also work with our Commercial Team in advising business owner directors.

Our advice is constructive, practical and sympathetic, aiming to help you resolve any difficulties - from one-off contractual matters to serious ongoing issues. We look to achieve the best resolution to meet your individual needs, taking you through internal processes, negotiating settlement agreements or, where necessary, representing you in claims to the Employment Tribunal.

We have represented clients in Employment Tribunals, both locally and nationally, and in the Employment Appeal Tribunal, in often complex and lengthy claims.

Whether it's a simple query or need for representation in a difficult matter, we will assist.
Areas of advice include:

  • Settlement Agreements
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Discrimination
  • Disciplinary matters
  • Redundancy
  • Grievance processes
  • Contracts of employment
  • Directors' service agreements
  • Whistleblowing
  • Sickness absence
  • Performance matters
  • TUPE transfers
  • Employment Tribunal Claims and Representation
  • Breach of Contract

Whatever the issue, if you are currently experiencing difficulties with your employer, do get in touch.
