Employment & Discrimination

All relationships have the potential for conflict and the workplace is a prime example of where disputes can occur. In our experience, if disputes are not dealt with early or handled carefully, they can escalate. We believe prevention is better than cure.

Legislation exists to outline the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers and offers protection and recourse for both. It is a complex area of law, and one that is continually and rapidly evolving. We have particular knowledge and expertise in handling specialist areas of employment law such as discrimination.

See here for more on discrimination.

We act for employers or employees and bring or defend claims.

You can instruct us before you begin to consider your employment contracts and workplace policies to help you avoid disputes in the first place and strengthen your position to resolve them effectively should they arise.

We have handled a wide range of employment matters for employees from a variety of industry sectors, from shop-floor to Board level, part-time workers to long-term contractors.

We advise on the following:-

  • Contracts of Employment/Service Agreements
  • Compromise Agreements
  • Disciplinary issues
  • Discrimination
  • Employment policies (including diversity, internet and social media)
  • Equal Opportunities
  • Grievances
  • Managing sickness and absence
  • Maternity Rights
  • Redundancy/restructuring and re-organisation
