Employment law is constantly changing and the repercussions of getting it wrong are often very significant indeed.  Awards for unfair dismissal can be substantial which makes getting the right advice critical; for both employers and employees.  Time limits for making and responding to claims are also notoriously short, which again can put considerable pressure on both parties.

Whether you are a part-time employee or run your own business employing large numbers of staff, we can advise and explain, in plain English, what your rights are and how you can use them to your advantage. We aim to give sensible, timely, practical advice when you need it, to help you choose the best course of action going forward.

  • For employers
    Prevention is often better than cure and we can help by providing a range of services tailored to your needs from a full-scale review of your employment practices, to drafting individual employee contracts, company policies and settlement agreements.  Of course, if things do go wrong we can help to advise and support you in defending or negotiating claims.
  • For employees
    You may have been unfairly dismissed, treated unfairly or feel that your employer is forcing you to resign. In all these situations we can offer advice and representation if required.
