Employment


We are engaged by both employers and employees in contentious and non-contentious employment matters. Our non-contentious work covers drafting contracts and staff handbooks, drafting and advising on settlement agreements (formerly compromise agreements), drafting and negotiating bespoke service agreements and advising on terms of business.

When the relationship between employer and employee breaks down it can be damaging for organisations, individuals and families alike. Our solicitors have acted for both employer and employees in Employment Tribunal claims for unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, breach of contract, discrimination and harassment. Reputation can be a big consideration in employment disputes and we routinely look to mediation as a way of reaching settlement and avoiding the damaging process of fully contested hearings.
