Employment issues are some of the most important and complex areas for managers to deal with and many clients find that gaining early access to pragmatic legal advice can make for more positive outcomes.

Our highly respected employment team are used to advising not only on the relevant procedures and policies which should be put in place, but on ensuring that managers are supported throughout the process up to and including representation at the employment tribunal.

There are several advantages to instructing a barrister via direct access; it is cost effective, time-efficient and you are in control of how much is handled by a legal expert, and consequently how much you pay in legal fees. You can seek advice as you deem appropriate and will be informed in advance of work being carried out as to what it will cost to obtain such advice.

Our team can offer advice on:

  • Recruitment best practice;
  • Drafting contracts and restrictive covenants;
  • Workplace policies for handling sickness absence; discipline and diversity;
  • Handling grievances;
  • Revising and updating equal opportunities policies;
  • Maternity leave, shared parental leave and pregnancy rights;
  • How to handle claims relating to protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010;
  • Handling redundancies;
  • Drafting settlement agreements;
  • Preparation for employment tribunals including advising on witnesses, disclosure;
  • Representation at all levels and in all courts and tribunal.
