Contractual, Bonus and Commission Scheme Disputes

Complex bonus and commission schemes to incentivise your staff can be drafted to keep your business protected.

We can advise on any disputes, and guide you through tribunals or court cases.

Discrimination, Victimisation and Harassment Claims

We can deal with grievances, training, and preventative measures, as well as the implementation of any new policies to protect your business interests.

We can also defend you if you’re taken to tribunal over discrimination claims against age, disability, harassment, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or Trade Union claims.

Grievances, Capability, Disciplinary and Dismissal Procedures

Some of the most common HR issues that occur can also be some of the most costly - especially if they aren’t carried out correctly. We can help ensure you aren’t left out of pocket.

Injunctions to Protect Business and Enforce Restrictive Covenants

We can advise you if you think an ex-employee has stolen confidential information from your business.

If you believe there’s been a breach of covenant (for example, if an ex-employee now works for a competitor or has approached your customers), we can guide you through the process for taking out an injunction.

Restrictive Covenants and Protection of Confidential Information

In any business, you’ll want to protect confidential information such as customer details and trade secrets. We have the specialist knowledge to protect these vital assets.

Redundancies and Restructuring

If you need to make redundancies or restructure, we can help you handle the situation with tact, regardless of whether it affects one employee or 100.

We can help minimise risk on all sides, protecting your business's interests.

Unfair and Wrongful Dismissal Claims

When faced with a claim against dismissal, a ruling against you could be disastrous for your business.

We can help you to avoid these claims in the first place.

Our specialist Employment Lawyers for Business are well-equipped to defend you in Court, so you don’t get hit with a potentially unlimited award for unfair dismissal.

We've also produced a 6 Step Guide to Deal with Mental Health Issues in the Workplace.
