Employment and Employment Disputes

We can provide employers and senior employees with advice and assistance on their employment law needs from engagement to dismissal including contracts of employment, staff handbooks and settlement agreements.

We have years of experience dealing with employment issues and difficult employees from very junior staff to director level.

If you have an employment dispute with an employee or possibly an ex-employee, or with your employer we can help. Whether you are looking to ensure the departure is on the best possible terms, or to negotiate or understand the implications of confidentiality clauses or post-termination restrictions our advisers can assist.

Paul Mitchell also has experience in obtaining injunctions and defending against injunctions to enforce restraint of trade obligations.

The Employment Tribunal – Changes

In the latter part of 2017, The Supreme Court ruled that the existing tribunal fees were unlawful. These fees, introduced in 2013, had reduced enormously the number of employees taking their employers to the tribunal. Realistically the expectation is that this will now reverse.

It is therefore vital that employers protect themselves through seeking proper advice.

Contracts of Employment

We have lots of experience in drafting bespoke employment contracts. We have done this in a variety of industries and for employees of varying levels of seniority. It is also important to realise that in small companies, the same individual might hold various positions – director, shareholder but also employee.

What to do about an individual employee?

It is important to deal with employees within the scope of the law. Various factors can ‘muddy the water’ as to an employer’s options in dealing with an employee. Long term illness, maternity leave, the absence of an employment contract are all issues we have dealt with. We can advise employers on how best to deal with an individual situation and best avoid risk of lengthy legal disputes

So, if you would like to discuss an employment matter with us please contact Paul Mitchell on 01158 371 430.
