Employment Law for Employers
Employment law can be a minefield and the penalties for getting something wrong can prove costly and disruptive to your business. New legislation or amendments to existing regulations are happening all the time and over the last few years the law regarding employment rights for employees has been significantly extended. It is therefore of greater importance now more so than ever before that as an employer you remain on the right side of the law by following the correct procedures and having the correct policies in place.
At Alan Roberts Law we have over 35 years’ experience in providing high quality, expert legal advice to employers on all aspects of employment law. When you contact us we will work closely with you to ensure your business can deal with all employment law and HR matters efficiently and effectively.
Whether you are considering disciplinary action against an employee for reasons such as misconduct or underperformance, are dealing with an employee’s sickness absence, need to restructure or make redundancies, are forced to defend an Employment Tribunal claim against your business or have any other business employment issue, we can help you. We can advise and represent you at all stages of the legal process, including negotiation, mediation, Employment Tribunal hearings and appeals in the higher courts. If redundancies need to be made we are experienced in negotiating and drafting settlement agreements (formally called compromise agreements).
We are also able to provide employers with comprehensive advice on employee contracts and employee handbooks. We can offer a full assessment of your existing documents and procedures or draw up new ones for you to ensure that you are complying with all statutory requirements and can advise as to the best practice for implementing and following these policies and procedures to provide your business with maximum protection.
