Employing staff gives rise to certain responsibilities for businesses. There is a great deal of legislation which has been built upon by legal cases and it is a constantly evolving area of law.
We advise employers about their ongoing employment law duties whilst they are recruiting, managing, disciplining and dismissing any staff member. We also draft settlement agreements, employment contracts and staff handbooks including internal grievance, disciplinary, capability and redundancy procedures. We advise regularly on the areas of discrimination, parental rights, sickness, share options, bonus rights and TUPE.
We represent clients in the Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court sometimes involving high profile, high value or precedent setting cases.
