Our national team of Business Employment Lawyers and Solicitors are specialists in every aspect of employment law for employers and offer jargon-free legal advice.
If you are an Employee please see Employment Law for Employees.
Our Business Employment Law Services include:
Settlement Agreements and Negotiated Severances
We offer legal advice on settlement agreements, which include the consideration of tax efficiency, pensions and share issues.
We can act for both employers and employees in termination of contracts of employment.
Having up-to-date employee documentation is key for new and old businesses alike. We can ensure you’re legally compliant, enabling your business to run smoothly.
We can draft settlement agreements, consultancy agreements, employee handbooks, policies and procedures.
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.
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.
