Employment Law (Business)

With an average tribunal claim costing the employer thousands of pounds, as well as valuable management time, it pays to stay on the right side of the law.

At Hunt & Coombs, we understand how challenging it can be to keep up with the fast-paced world of employment law. As a business, you’ll have a wide range of commercial goals and considerations to balance with your duties as an employer. Our employment law solicitors are specialists in their field and absolutely dedicated to helping employers comply with their legal responsibilities and resolve disputes as amicably as possible.

Where issues do arise, whether it’s an employee complaint, questions about redundancy or dismissal, or alleged breaches of privacy and data protection, we can provide clear, practical advice about your options for proceeding, helping you resolve the matter with as little disruption to the running of the business or its reputation as possible.

In the majority of situations, an informal conversation is all it takes to resolve an employment issue and we’ll apply our expert negotiation skills to bring the matter to a conclusion as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. We can also help you access methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution, such as mediation and arbitration, go through the ACAS (Arbitration Conciliation and Advisory Service) conciliation process, or defend Employment Tribunal proceedings.

Health checks

With employment law and employee rights ever-changing and evolving, it is important to keep your policies and procedures up to date and fit for purpose. We can carry out assessments of your current employment policies and procedures to optimise efficiency and ensure the most cost-effective and legally compliant practices.

I have used the services of Hunt & Coombs on three previous occasions and each time I receive a genuine welcome, more importantly a solicitor who is well adverse in the area of law I needed help with but most of all the advice has been explained professionally and simplified so that I fully understand it and are satisfied that my interests are being taken care of by people I trust. Hunts & Coombs go the extra mile in every department.
