Employment problems can arise without warning, usually as a result of ignorance rather than a wilful disregard of the law. As an employer or employee, we will explain your rights and obligations at every stage of the employment process. We will support you and give you advice to enable you to make informed decisions when you are faced with new situations, problems and difficult judgments. Where appropriate, we will assess the likely chances of a success in bringing a claim before a Tribunal or Court and the probable levels of compensation or damages/costs.

We can review and draft your employment procedures and documentation, explaining what is mandatory and what is best practice. We can prepare staff handbooks and talk to key members of your team. Our service is tailored to the nature and size of your operation and our charges are proportionate.
