Our Employment Team acts for a wide range of clients in numerous sectors and for both employers and individuals. We cover issues and claims involving all aspects of domestic and international employment law. We will help you find the right course to steer through frequently changing legislation that is often complex and confusing. Our aim is to help you manage risk effectively, implement change and capitalize on key business opportunities by providing accurate and unrivalled commercially focused advice.
We provide expert standard policy documents for employers including disciplinary and grievance procedures, consultancy agreements, written terms of employment and employee handbooks. We provide advice on dismissals, handling industrial relations and collective issues. We provide the protection of businesses through restrictive covenants and confidentiality and seeking court remedies such as injunctions. We conduct contractual negotiations when an employer is looking to appoint or dismiss an employee, handling the employment issues that arise when corporate transactions and re-organizations take place, including outsourcings, both on a domestic and international basis and handling employee claims in the high court and employment tribunals.
