Frequently asked questions

Below are some of the most common questions employers have concerning employment law.

We advise on almost every employment law matter, including:

  • Unfair Dismissal and Constructive Dismissal claims
  • Discrimination
  • Employment Contracts and Directors’ Service Agreements
  • Settlement Agreements
  • TUPE
  • Disciplinary action
  • Redundancy

Discrimination claims are becoming more common. Employers are now forced to navigate a minefield of establishing what does and does not amount to express or implied discrimination. Our Employment Solicitors take all this stress and complexity off your shoulders. We will be by your side, advising you on every decision that may bring a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010 into focus. You can be confident that our advice will ensure that you have the information required to protect you from discrimination claims and the reputational and financial damage that can result from having to appear before the Employment Tribunal.

‘Rightsizing’ is not simply a softer way of saying ‘downsizing’. The latter involves reducing the number of employees to increase profitability or ensure the solvency of the company. Rightsizing, on the other hand, is a process by which you establish if your business has the right number of employees and those employees have the skills and experience required to ensure the organisation can meet its strategic goals. Rightsizing can involve making redundancies but also hiring new talent, adding a new layer of management, or creating a specialist department. Rather than a one-off activity, rightsizing is a continuous process.

Our experience shows that reputational management is a crucial element of dealing with an employment dispute. We can advise you on ways to settle a claim confidentially, for example, offering your employee a Settlement Agreement or using Alternative Dispute Resolution methods such as negotiation and mediation rather than going to the Employment Tribunal, the latter resulting in public proceedings. Our team can also answer any questions from the media and work with a PR firm to ensure your organisation’s reputation is protected.
