Advice for Employers:

We can give your business comprehensive yet clear and concise guidance in employer- employee relations and how this impacts upon legal procedures.

Most employers have the best intentions but it can be difficult to administrate an effective system that will be fair to your employees and protect your business interests and, meet the requirements of legislation.

If you are responsible for personnel within a business or are the principal proprietor please do not hesitate to contact us for guidance in relation to the following:

Formation of Employment Contracts and Contractual disputes

• Disciplinary procedures. For example;
- What disciplinary processes does the law dictate must be undertaken
before an employee can be dismissed?
- What levels of discipline are appropriate for different types of
employee misconduct?
- What sorts of records must be kept of disciplinary actions?

• Redundancy
• Meeting claims of unfair dismissal, sex, race and disability
discrimination actions

as a going concern
• Employment Tribunals

Advice for Employees:

Experiencing difficulties at work can be highly distressing. Often people may not know where to turn or how to evaluate how serious a problem actually is.

We can advise and assist with respect to the following areas:

• Disciplinary procedures- are you being treated fairly?
• Employment Contracts
• Redundancy
