Employment

Employment is a potential minefield. It is an area of law that has seen constant development in recent times, often driven by EC directives. Employees have become more aware of their rights and are increasingly prepared to seek legal redress. It is vital that employers have efficient up to date working practises and that early advice is taken when potentially difficult situations arise.

With many thousands of applications annually by employees to Employment Tribunals in the UK, and with no minimum periods of employment required in some cases and no upper limits for some awards, employers need to be fully and properly informed of relevant laws and procedures.

  • Contracts of employment
  • Data Protection
  • Disciplinary action and grievance procedures
  • Discrimination for sex, race, disability
