Employment Law for Businesses in London

UK employment law is constantly evolving and staying abreast of the latest developments is increasingly difficult. It is therefore important to ensure that expert legal advice is obtained to ensure compliance with your duties as an employer.

As an employer, you should ensure that you are familiar with this extensive area of the law, which will apply from the moment your business is formed and will continue to be relevant throughout the life of your business, including in restructures, takeovers and insolvency situations.

The implications of an employer’s noncompliance with their legal obligations can be far reaching. It can tarnish a company’s reputation and be costly, both financially and in terms of reduced productivity from a demoralised workforce.

Our team of experienced employment solicitors advise and assist HR professionals, owner managers and senior managers in the following ways:

  • Drafting contracts of employment for all levels of staff and negotiating director’s service agreements
  • Drafting HR policies and procedures
  • Drafting staff handbooks
  • Providing day-to-day advice on handling HR issues, such as disciplinary procedures, long-term sickness absence and capability issues
  • Representing clients in the Employment Tribunal to defend claims such as unfair dismissal, breach of contract or discrimination claims
  • Taking clients through the process to be followed in relation to redundancy and group consultation
  • Providing advice in relation to the implementation and enforcement of restrictive covenants, intellectual property rights and rights in relation to confidential information
  • Advising clients on the employment aspects of business reorganisation, takeovers and outsourcing under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE)
  • Negotiating the settlement of employment disputes and drafting settlement agreements
