Employment law is constantly changing and is increasingly complicated. It throws up some of the most difficult issues that businesses have to face. Whatever the problem you are facing, we can help you solve it.
Your business, irrespective of its size, is obliged to comply with a wide variety of rules and regulations governing the way in which you deal with your staff. We are here to share that burden. We can help you to navigate your way through the problems and challenges that arise within your workplace. We do this by working alongside you, understanding your business and providing you with the advice and support you need.
We regularly act for both employers and employees in the drafting and negotiation of settlement agreements (previously known as compromise agreements). Under a settlement agreement, an employee will typically be asked to settle any claims that they may have against their employer in return for a lump sum cash payment (and perhaps a few other sweeteners besides).
If you are an employer who wishes to offer one of your employees a settlement agreement, we can advise you on the benefits and pit-falls of this approach. We can also advise you on the right financial offer to make and the terms that should be attached.
We can provide a range of training sessions, covering a wide variety of employment law issues. Our sessions can be run for groups of all sizes or even for individuals. We adopt an informal approach and encourage attendees to ask questions throughout. This helps us to concentrate on the issues that interest you the most, ensuring that you get the most out of the experience.
