Disputes can be create large costs and can take up a lot of management time as well as damage company morale and reputation. It is important to consider prevention being better than cure as an ethic in our work and we pride ourselves on ensuring that our clients rarely have to appear in the Employment Tribunal.

Nonetheless, there may be times when you may face vexatious litigation. If this is the case, we will defend your position; constantly advising you of the merits of your claim at each stage.

We are experienced in defending employers in the Tribunals and have the ability to personally represent them at hearings. Furthermore, we regularly advise on mediating and resolving employment disputes through negotiation, confidential conversations and settlement agreements.

Our key areas of advice include:

  • Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures
  • Unfair Dismissal and Wrongful Dismissal
  • Redundancy Consultation and Procedures
  • Business Mergers and Sales (“TUPE”)
  • Changing Terms and Conditions
  • Long term sickness absence, Ill-Health Dismissals
  • Whistleblowing/Protected Disclosures

  • Flexible Working
  • Restrictive Covenants (protecting your business)
  • Worker status – the differences between “employees” and “workers”
  • Volunteers
  • Discrimination Claims including Disability, Sex, Race, Age, Pregnancy, Sexuality, Religion and Belief
