Employment Corporate

The enormous number of employment compliance issues means that employers increasingly require specialist advice to ensure that they are complying with the Law. Whatever the nature of the enquiry, our dedicated employment team can provide clear advice in a timely and cost effective manner. We can provide help and assistance in various areas including:


Terms of Employment, Policies & Procedures

A full range of policies and procedures provided individually or as part of a “handbook”, including:


  • Disciplinary procedures
  • Grievance procedures
  • Equal opportunities policies
  • Policies relating to data protection and use of email and the internet
  • Drafting contracts of employment
  • Drafting Settlement Agreements


Employment litigation and termination agreements

We undertake all aspects of employment litigation including High court, County court proceedings and Employment tribunal work.  We aim to ensure that our clients can approach a hearing with confidence.


Our employment solicitors are able to advise employers and business owners on a range of employment matters, including:


  • Contract law
  • Maternity and paternity rights
  • Sickness
  • Redundancy and settlement agreements
  • Disciplinary procedures and tribunals
  • Equalities legislation and discrimination
  • Workplace harassment and constructive dismissal


Many business owners are tempted to leave employment issues until there is a problem.  A single unfair dismissal claim can cripple a small or medium-sized business financially, especially if it is not handled correctly. For this reason, taking the time to ensure your employment practices are properly considered and implemented can pay in the long run.


If you do find yourself subject to legal action from a current or former employee, our solicitors can help. We can advise you on the best way to minimise financial and administrative fallout from unfair dismissal to discrimination claims, as well as the best strategy for fighting vexatious allegations which threaten to reach a tribunal.


Flexible funding options

We offer fixed fees, pay as you go, or a retainer service, so you can choose the option that best fits your needs at a reasonable cost that you can budget for.


Our comprehensive service includes

  • Employment documentation including disciplinary and grievance, health and safety, social media, internet and email, equal opportunities, contracts of employment, executive service agreements, consultancy agreements, staff handbooks, maternity and paternity policies.
