Our advice covers a wide range of employment law disputes, including:
The laws governing employment disputes are constantly evolving due to changes in European and English law and numerous case interpretations. It is crucial to have an advisor who stays current with these developments and provides up-to-date advice.
We offer guidance during the early stages of disputes, such as grievances raised by employees or disciplinary actions taken by employers. Navigating the legal landscape in these processes can be challenging, but our expert advice will help you through.
In addition, we provide advice on Employment Tribunal litigation if internal processes fail to resolve the issues. Our experience in handling Tribunal cases ensures we guide clients through the entire process, from a final hearing to an agreed settlement. We maintain regular contact with ACAS throughout the litigation to facilitate potential settlements.
We can also review your contracts of employment and disciplinary procedures to ensure they are up-to-date and serve your business’s needs effectively.
Settlement Agreements offer a popular way for employers to resolve disputes with employees without resorting to lengthy and costly litigation. These agreements officially terminate the employee’s contract of employment, and in exchange, the employee agrees to waive all legal claims. Proper execution of Settlement Agreements requires strict adherence to legal requirements, including the employee receiving independent legal advice. It is essential to consult a skilled employment law solicitor before signing any agreement to avoid potential legal repercussions.
In challenging economic times, businesses may face insolvency and restructuring, leading to potential redundancies. Fulfilling legal requirements when making employees redundant is vital to avoid allegations of unfair dismissal. Our expertise can help you navigate the complexities of redundancy processes and ensure compliance with legal obligations.
