Keeping up with changes to Employment Law can be a minefield for small and medium sized businesses. It is also important for emplyees to keep track of their rights and responsibilities.
Employment law changes more frequently than almost any other area. Samuels has a proven track record in advising both employers and employees in relation to their ever-evolving rights.
We can provide your business with an employment "health check" and review your contracts, policies and procedures to ensure they comply with current legislation.
If things do go wrong, we can advise you on many different aspects of employment law, including:
- unfair dismissal;
- constructive dismissal;
- whistleblowing claims;
- compromise agreements;
- bullying and harrassment;
- discrimination; and
- disciplinary issues.
We act in both the Employment Tribunal and the County Court and have brought complex and high value cases to a successful conclusion.
We appreciate how important it is for both businesses and individuals that employment disputes are dealt with fairly, quickly and effectively, so as to ensure minimum disruption to your life and business.
We will always consider your funding options with you at the very outset, which can be tailored to your personal or business needs.
If you have been dismissed, if you have a problem with an employee, or if you would like to discuss any other employment issues, please contact us.
