Whether you are an employee or an employer, the chances are that you will require assistance and advice with some element of the employment relationship at some point. Good-quality employment advice can maximise the employment relationship and minimise the time, cost and distress of legal disputes. You can enlist in employment advice at any stage – whether you are contemplating a change in the employment relationship, negotiating changed work conditions, commencing informal grievance procedures, or filing a claim in an employment tribunal – and the right employment advice, and representation if necessary, can make the difference between a positive and a negative outcome.
Employment advice is not one-size-fits-all. The advice must look in detail at the particular employment relationship and the particular role and industry involved, and tailor answers and solutions around these specifics. This can only be done by experienced professionals who are specialists in employment law.
Some of the issues that you may wish to seek employment advice on include:
- Employment contracts
- Dismissal: unfair dismissal; unlawful dismissal; summary dismissal; constructive dismissal
Health and Safety
- Establishing health and safety policies
- Unsafe practices in the workplace
- Unsafe working environments
