Employment Law

Employment Law: Business employment law and employment advice.

Employment law is the fastest-growing area of legislation, affecting every aspect of working life for employers and staff alike. But employment law is far more than just rules for hiring and firing: it's about protecting rights, defining responsibilities, settling grievances and disputes, and ensuring fairness on all sides. In particular, we help employers draw up, then follow, robust grievance, disciplinary and dismissal procedures to avoid potentially costly and damaging claims.

We can also help you with:

  • Contracts of employment
  • Staff handbooks
  • Redundancy and unfair dismissal
  • Discrimination
  • Compromise agreements
  • Representation at employment tribunals
