Our Employment Law Services
Every employee has a contract of employment as a matter of law. It is always advisable to ensure that the terms of employment are not only agreed, but that the agreements are recorded in writing and up to date with the latest employment legislation.
In addition to Contracts of Employment, as the employer you also need a set of policies that comply with the ACAS Code on grievance and disciplinary procedures.
Whilst there are similarities with contracts of employment, due to the fact the sums involved are often larger with Directors, there is a greater chance that disputes will result in litigation.
It is important to ensure that a fair procedure is followed to minimise the risk of litigation when managing a redundancy situation. Our solicitors are able to provide guidance on this as well as understanding the legal and commercial implications of such actions.
Employment claims and tribunals are a complex and continually changing area of law and we would strongly advise that you seek legal advice as soon as possible, We have considerable experience in this area and can assist you with Tribunal claims at all stages and arrange for representation at hearings.
If you have reached an agreement on termination of employment it is essential that you get help with drafting and negotiating a valid Settlement Agreement to record the key points.
TUPE regulations are complex and if you believe that they may apply to you then we would strongly advise that you seek early legal advice.
