Employment Services for Individuals
The Employment Unit is dedicated to advising employees, including directors and senior executives, on all employment-related issues, ranging from advice on their terms of engagement to tribunal claims and representation at tribunal hearings.
The work we do includes:
- Advising on employment contracts and directors’ service agreements, including post-termination restrictions.
- Advising and representing individuals in tribunal claims covering all areas of employment law including unfair, wrongful or constructive dismissal, redundancy and all types of discrimination.
- Advising employees on the employment implications of corporate transactions (including transfers of undertakings).
- Advising individuals on their rights and duties as employees.
- Advising individuals on proposed changes to their contracts of employment.
- Providing group advice to employees being made redundant or dismissed following the sale or transfer of a business or company.
- Advising and negotiating on severance packages and on the terms and effect of signing compromise agreements.
We advise on compromise agreements. This will cover the time spent giving independent legal advice on the terms of the agreement, in advising briefly on the potential claims you may have and dealing with the formalities associated with signature of the agreement. This fee (or at least part of it) will often be paid by the employer as part of the deal. If you ask us we can get involved in negotiating an improved compensation package, or different wording for the agreement, or to provide detailed advice on the prospects of success of your potential claims and likely compensation
