Our Employment Team, headed up by Associate Solicitor Claire Cole, advises employers and employees on all aspects of employment law.
We help our clients get the right employment contracts and HR policies in place which are fit for purpose and suit business needs. We work with companies to tackle tricky workplace issues as they arise giving practical, pragmatic advice. For employers who need dedicated HR support we have created an HR for Business solution that delivers hands-on HR advice as it’s needed by qualified employment lawyers. Where litigation is unavoidable, we have extensive experience acting for clients in the Employment Tribunal defending unfair dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination claims
We support individuals facing grievance and disciplinary hearings at work. In settlement agreement negotiations, we advise clients on their legal claims so that they understand whether the compensation package being offered by their employer is fair or not. We represent individuals in the ACAS Early Conciliation Process and the Employment Tribunal ensuring that they achieve the best possible outcome.
