Employment Law and HR Support for Employers and Businesses

Employment is a complex and frequently changing area of law. Our specialist team is available to guide you through the issues involved, which are often time-consuming for employers and businesses, and also to advise and represent you swiftly and decisively when issues arise.

We are able to help you manage your workforce in a way that suits the needs of your organisation and its budgets, whilst maximising efficiency and minimising exposure to claims and complaints from employees.

When matters become contentious we believe most disputes can be resolved through  discussion and negotiation. To this end we will always endeavour to guide you to early, cost-effective solutions.

Where necessary, we provide strong and effective representation in proceedings before the Employment Tribunal and the Courts.

We provide a comprehensive range of services to cover all aspects of employment law to include:

  • Interviewing and recruitment of new staff
  • Drafting employment contracts, service agreements, consultancy agreements, worker agreements and staff handbooks
  • Reviewing employment policies and procedures
