What Services do we Provide?
Whilst most employment contracts are based on standard templates, some contracts will benefit from further proficient expert advice. Examples include where there are restrictive covenants, such as post-resignation restrictions on future employment. An employment law solicitor can act on behalf of the employee. This helps any sensitive contract negotiations and guards the employee-employer relationship.
Harassment and Bullying
Employers are accountable for stopping bullying and harassment within their workplace and should have procedures in place to protect employees rights. If you’ve launched a complaint about bullying or harassment, your employer should investigate quickly and impartially.
If your employer is not protecting you from bullying or harassment, or you’re unsatisfied with how they’ve managed your complaint, contact us.
In today’s unpredictable world, many employees find themselves in a redundancy situation. Employees that have professional counsel from an employment law specialist will be able to better secure fair treatment. Even if a job cannot be saved, the employee can obtain their entire redundancy entitlement.
TUPE stands for Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. It can apply when a company or service is transferred to a new employer. It is a specialised area of employment law. Employees who seek legal advice will gain an extra level of assurance that the incoming employer is treating them fairly and within TUPE Regulations.

Disciplinaries and Grievances
If the employer is considering disciplinary action against an employee, contacting a solicitor for guidance is strongly advised. An employer does not hold all the power in disciplinary proceedings. A solicitor can notify the employee of the measures an employer must take before holding the disciplinary hearing. In some instances, a solicitor intervention may be able to either stop or delay a disciplinary action.
Everyone has the right to be treated, at work with respect, no employee should undergo indifferent treatment from their co-workers. Whether this is to do with wages or other performance conditions, the Equality Act places a legal obligation on employers to handle all employees fairly. Under this legislation, eight protected characteristics guarantee employees are not discriminated against based on:
- Gender reassignment
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Marital or civil partnership status
- Religion or beliefs
- Sexual orientation
Long-Term Sickness Absence
Regrettably, sometimes people become ill or suffer an injury which results in long term absence for long periods of time. Some employees find they are under pressure to vacate their employment after their sick leave entitlement has ended. Securing legal advice on employment rights can ensure the employee fully understands their rights.
