Employment

Understanding goes a long way

Employment law exists to protect the interests of people on either side of an employment contract.

There’s also a fluid relationship between employers and employees accommodating changing lives, ambitions, business types and ideas about work – so employment law changes frequently to adapt to the realities of work.

Employing expertise

As an employer it’s tough enough managing people without taking into account the changing responsibilities that employing anyone entails.

As your legal partner we ensure that you are always fully briefed on your responsibilities, and that your policies, procedures and contracts are in order.

It’s a service that leaves you and your managers free to get on with the day-to-day running of the business.

It’s a big help to have a well-informed aide on hand

You might be unsure about what steps you can take to manage under-performing employees, or how to deal correctly with other challenging situations in the workplace.

We are always on hand with advice, which when taken early can help to prevent costly mistakes.

Our advice is always practical and focused on finding the best and most timely solution acceptable to all, in the most cost effective way.

To help your managers, we also provide training and support in HR matters, including briefings on the impact to your business of changes to the law.
