Areas where our employment solicitors can advice employers & business owners

Drafting bespoke employment contracts & policies

We have worked with many business sectors and therefore are well versed in the complexities of contractors, zero hours contracts and seasonal workers.

We pride ourselves on understanding our clients businesses. We can review your business practices to ensure you have all the policies in place that your business requires so that you are compliant with current legislation, such policies can include stress at work, equal opportunities policies, family friendly rights and data protection. Appropriate policies that are followed can protect your business from  discrimination claims. Most work of this type can be undertaken for a fixed fee agreed in advance so you can stay in control of costs.

Advice for employers on expansion & restructuring

If you are proposing to purchase an existing business or are tendering  your services and need advice on how TUPE applies, or if you are looking at selling your business, we are skilled advisors for all TUPE related matters. We can also advise businesses on recruitment issues and provide advice on wording for recruitment advertising (to ensure it cannot be viewed as discriminatory).

If you need to restructure your business we can be on hand to advise on the correct procedures and ensure in the event of redundancies that selection is based on a fair process and employees receive their statutory or contractual entitlements.

Disciplinary, sickness issues & termination of employment

We advise a number of employers with regard to disciplinary proceedings and dismissals on the grounds of incapability and gross misconduct. If you have an issue with an employee we can advise prior to you taking action to ensure you follow a fair process. We can attend meetings where necessary to minimise the risk of your business having to defend a claim for unfair dismissal and/or discrimination. We can also advise on without prejudice discussions and draft settlement agreements.
