Employment advice for employers

Our employment solicitors are able to advise employers and business owners on a range of employment matters, including:

  • Contract law
  • Maternity and paternity rights
  • Sickness/absence
  • Redundancy and settlement agreements
  • Disciplinary procedures and tribunals
  • Equalities legislation and discrimination
  • Workplace harassment and constructive dismissal

Many employers are tempted, especially in the early stages of their company’s life, to ‘leave the legal stuff until later’ when it comes to things like employment law. However, the value of getting legal advice early in your employment journey cannot be underestimated; a single unfair dismissal claim can cripple a small or medium-sized business financially, especially if not handled correctly.
