Legal Advice for Employers
Running a business can be challenging for employers, who have to manage the needs of their business and their staff whilst making sure that their decisions are legally compliant.
Employment legislation is complex and if an employer does not understand how it affects their businesses, and the choices they make, this can have serious and expensive consequences.
As we are specialists in employment law, we can help you make informed decisions, to minimise the risk to your business.
We have been working closely with employers for years, and can offer you legal assistance in the following areas:
- Changes to terms and conditions and contracts of employment
- Settlement agreements (formerly known as compromise agreements)
- Consultancy agreements
- Restrictive Covenants
- Drafting and advising on employee documentation
- Redundancy and Reorganisation
- Termination and Severance
- Grievance and disciplinary processes
- Performance management
- Sickness absence management
- Gender pay gap reporting and equal pay
- Tribunal support and representation
- Unfair dismissal
We offer a number of pricing options designed to suit the needs of your business. We can also provide employment law training on any of the above.
