What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

What Services do we Provide?

Employment Contracts

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.

Redundancy

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

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.

Directors

Redkite has a team of law experts that have comprehensive knowledge and decades of experience in dealing with particular issues regarding the appointment, employment, and dismissal of directors.

The services we provide include:

  • Appointment
  • Directors’ service agreements
  • Removal of directors
  • Compensation payments to directors for loss of office
  • Employment tribunal claims

We offer directors a free, no-obligation initial discussion with our qualified employment solicitors who specialise in directorial matters.

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.

Discrimination

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:

  • Age
  • Gender reassignment
  • Race
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Marital or civil partnership status
  • Disability
  • 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.

Having an experienced team of employment law solicitors on hand who support their clients every step of the way is vital. If you are facing employment issues or disputes, call Redkite Solicitors today on  01453 825 1551 or complete our online enquiry form.
