What does employment law cover?
Employment law covers all the legal nooks and crannies when it comes to the interplay between employees, employers, the government and any stakeholders. It’s a complex area, but one we excel in servicing.
- Business transfer and outsourcing – We can make sure transferring employees between organisations, or parts of a company’s operations moving to another provider are done in an above-board manner.
- Compromise agreements – These are when an employer and employee both sign a contract to agree not to pursue a claim for breach of contract. Legal advice is a necessity here.
- Contracts, policies and procedures – An essential part of office life, drawing them all up will have a significant legal element. Our employment law solicitors can explain how to make sure everything is right.
- Discrimination – Any business found to be treating someone unfairly due to their race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or religious beliefs could be left facing a serious compensation claim.
- Employment tribunals – Trying to avoid having to pay out if you get taken to an employment tribunal is a must, especially if your business is struggling financially. Speak to us.
- Family-friendly legislation – With our advice, you can draw up legal documents detailing how you can allow for workers with families to work at hours suitable for their needs.
- Flexible working – Anyone working for the same employer for at least six months can ask for flexible hours. If you need to know more, feel free to come to us for advice.
- In-house training – In-house training is a legal requirement in many industries. We will offer you advice wherever you need it for putting training in place.
- Injunctions – These can be taken out against employees, but only in certain circumstances. We can try and help you understand this complicated process.
- Managing redundancies – The right amount of payment should be given to those being made redundant. We’re on hand to explain how this works.
- Recruitment support – Through talking to one of our specialist solicitors, you can find out how to go about finding the right recruits without breaking the rules.
- Service agreements – These are binding in that, if they are broken, either you or the client/employee may have to pay up. We will explain how these work if you’re unsure.
- Unfair dismissal – If an employee whose contract has been recently terminated makes a claim for unfair dismissal, our solicitors can offer advice on what you can do as an employer.
- Human resource (HR) support – If you’re finding administration a struggle, you can call upon our services to make HR tick for your business.
