Protect your business interests with practical employment law advice from specialist employment solicitors.
Professional employment advice for employers.
Employment law advice
Employment law issues affect every workplace. They can happen at any time and have the potential to escalate quickly, demanding time, attention and budget to resolve.
Dealing with employment issues effectively when they arise reduces the risk of tribunal claims and fosters a positive and productive working environment.
For employers, managing disputes quickly and effectively will be of primary concern to minimise operational disruption and avoid the risk of costly and tribunal claims.
With specialist employment law advice, you can ensure your organisation has the framework in place to help manage and avoid workplace issues, mitigate legal risk exposure.
Employment law for employers
As a UK employer, you operate under a vast and highly changeable backdrop of employment laws and guidelines. The challenge for employers is remaining compliant with the rules against the commercial realities of operating a business and achieving your commercial goals.
With our employment law advice service, you can benefit from:
- Proactive legal risk management through planning strategies, training, policy documentation & infrastructure
- Unlimited employment law advice and access to our employment solicitors
- Tribunal representation and defence strategy in the event a claim is litigated
- Employment law training through our programme of webinars, e-learning and bespoke onsite training aimed at managers, HR and non-HR personnel.
We advocate taking early legal advice to avoid employment disputes, or find early resolution.
Where a dispute with an employee arises, we can support at every stage, from all preliminary stages through to any litigation process.
For most employers, a positive outcome for a workplace dispute will be fast and fair resolution, with minimal impact on finances, operations and reputation.
We work closely with clients to assess the merits of any potential employment law claim, drafting and negotiating settlement agreements to help bring disputes to an early resolution. Where compromise or conciliation is not achievable, we have specialist expertise in handling employment tribunal claims.
