Employment is an essential part of most businesses and so an important fact of everyday life. Whether you are an employer or an employee/worker, we can assist in providing efficient, considered and holistic solutions on employment law issues you may encounter.
We act for both employers and employees, which enables us to appreciate the point of view from either side and so permits us to anticipate the position the other side may take where a dispute has arisen.
Of course, employment relationships do not necessarily always have to involve disputes and very often matters can be resolved by agreement, failing which we are able to provide advice on how best to deal with the situation bearing in mind the stress, time and expense that may be involved.
We can assist in providing non-contentious advice, including preparation of employment contracts, advising on TUPE implications, assisting with work policies and procedures, staff handbooks or simply general advice on the relevant legal position in relation to a question that you might have.
The employment relationship, much like any other relationship, requires regular attention and care so as to ensure the continuation of the relationship already built. Both employers and employees invest time and effort in building these relationships and so have a vested interest in how such relationships evolve to their respective benefit. We understand this and strive to ensure that these considerations are taken into account when we advise you.
Of course, people being people, it is not always possible to anticipate how someone else might behave and if the relationship breaks down, we will advise you on the options available to you and where appropriate, to commence proceedings within the time limit, or resolving the situation by way of a settlement agreement.
