Every business needs to understand and comply with employment laws. These are some of the most complex laws for businesses, with continually evolving regulations and in many cases EU regulations adding to the complexity.
We are able to assist with:
We can also provide advice concerning equal opportunities and discrimination issues and family law, e.g. maternity and paternity employment rights.
In a number of circumstances the rules change regularly, e.g. level of minimum wage and new initiatives will affect all organisations which employ people, e.g. introduction of the national living wage and workplace pensions.
Sadly ignorance of the regulations is no defence. Our employment lawyers are here to provide you with the support you need. We have lots of experience advising a broad range of clients from company owners, managers and HR professionals to senior employees and executives.
Whether you are a small enterprise or a large corporate firm, we will provide cost-effective and relevant advice to meet your commercial needs.
As employment law is one of the fastest-changing areas, we recognise the challenge for businesses to keep updated on these changes. We therefore provide regular briefings for HR professionals highlighting changes to legislation and recent case decisions which are relevant. We also issue a monthly Employment Law Update highlighting topical changes and cases.
We work closely with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) to support their CPD for members. If needed, we can prepare bespoke briefings for organisations, designed to help their senior managers with specific law issues, e.g. disciplinary procedures.
