Employment Law

We understand the workplace, not just the law. We are happy to work as part of a corporate team, and to represent individuals.

Every job requires a contract. As well as the basic statement of employment terms that every employer must give to every employee, it should also cover:

  • What the employee is required to do for the employer
  • What the employer will do for the employee
  • What terms and conditions are to be applied to those requirements

A clear and reasonable agreement must exist that lays out all the necessary detail involved in these three areas.

Employment law is complex and fast changing, with many potential pitfalls for employers. There are many stipulations including the requirement that workplaces must be safe, working conditions acceptable, hours of work and rest periods reasonable. Discrimination of any kind is forbidden and the law lays down procedures for dismissal, redundancy, retirement and discipline. The list is endless and employees have obligations too.

Whether you are an employer trying to do the right thing by your employees and by the law, or an employee who feels they may have been treated wrongly, we can help. As experts, we can guide you - negotiating solutions if things go wrong and advising you to ensure that they don’t.

  • Contracts of employment
  • Employee incentive schemes including enterprise management incentives.
  • Disciplinary Matters
  • Redundancy
  • Retirement policies
  • Discrimination of all kinds in the workplace
  • Holiday and sickness policies
  • Maternity and Paternity leave
  • Employment vs. self-employment and the rules surrounding each
  • Pensions and other benefits

And indeed anything connected with being either an employee or an employer.
