Problems in the workplace can be a real and costly headache for Employers and Employees. Managing your workforce effectively or keeping your job will often depend on the steps you take to protect your business or yourself as you navigate your way through policies on issues of Discipline, Redundancy, Discrimination, Performance, Absenteeism and many others – providing of course that adequate policies exist and people know how to apply them fairly.

Dismissing someone or discriminating against them involves a considerable financial risk. Employers can take steps to limit their claims risk and Employees can take steps to maximise any claim. Our experience of Employment Tribunal Claims and advising on the management of employment law problems enables our employment team to provide specialist advice to both Employers and Employees in this wide and complex field.

We provide advice in the following areas:

  • Redundancy
  • Unfair Dismissal
  • Pursuing & defending Tribunal claims
  • Contracts of Employment
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Compromise Agreements
  • Discrimination Matters
  • Advice to Employers and Employees on how to approach meetings on Disciplinary

Contact our Employment team for a confidential appointment. We will respond very quickly to urgent situations and offer to visit Employers at their place of business where discussion with relevant staff and consideration of documents on site can often be a very effective way of doing business. Where employees require urgent advice in preparation for meetings an early appointment will be made available.
