Employment Law can be a minefield of legislation, rules and procedures. Our expert Employment Team advises employees on contracts, rights to holidays, sick pay, maternity leave as well as issues from alleged poor performance, disciplinary and grievance procedures to unfair dismissal and discrimination.
Employees and Workers
If you are entering into a new employment relationship, giving prior consideration to proposed conditions and executive schemes is worthwhile, providing you with the basis for negotiating better terms. During employment, your employer may approach you to vary the contract; if this happens you have legal options.
Job Security - Redundancy
The number of individuals out of work has not been higher since the period to September 1996. Further redundancies are expected and following the general election the new government is expected to turn its attention to the public sector cuts.
You can prepare yourself by collecting together your employment papers (including your employment contract and staff handbook) and looking out an employment lawyer who you can readily instruct in the event your employer commences redundancy discussions. At Seth Lovis & Co we are here to respond to your enquiries about redundancy, and any other aspect of employment law.
We are routinely instructed by employees and workers wanting to know more about their rights (to do with a reorganisation or TUPE transfer, for instance), or how to cope with the unreasonable behaviour of colleagues. We will help you through the problem to a satisfactory resolution.
Termination and dismissal
Sometimes relationships break down. It is important that you have all the information before you. We can help you understand the relevant law, whether litigation is a viable option and what a tribunal action involves.
If your employer makes a termination offer, it is usual to enter into a Compromise Agreement. Before accepting such an offer, you must take advice on your rights and obligations to ensure you have been adequately compensated and protected.
If you are experiencing problems at work, or if you are not clear about your legal rights, then our Employment team can help with the following:
- Discrimination on grounds of gender, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age
- Unfair dismissal
- Employee representation at Tribunals
- Grievances and disciplinary matters
- Compromise Agreements
- Employment contracts
