Employment Disputes

70th Anniversary

Our employment solicitor’s tribunal and dispute resolution expertise includes:

  • Unfair dismissal;
  • Discrimination;
  • TUPE claims;
  • Family friendly rights; and
  • Breach of contract.

Few cases need to progress as far as the Employment Tribunal, but we can provide robust advice and representation in the event that yours does. Every action we take will be tailored in line with your business strategy and we will carefully take steps to defend your rights and professional reputation.

We also provide advice in relation to Alternative Dispute Resolution, including ACAS conciliation, mediation and arbitration which can save you considerable time, costs and stress.

Employment litigation

We have years of experience assisting clients through the most challenging and contentious of employment litigation cases, including:

  • Wrongful dismissal;
  • Restrictive covenants;
  • Industrial action;
  • Breach of contract;
  • Team moves;
  • Breach of fiduciary duties;
  • Confidentiality;
  • Recovery from employees;
  • Garden leave;
  • Bonus claims; and
  • Commission.

In the majority of cases, we are able to help employers settle the dispute before it reaches court using Alternative Dispute Resolution.

Business protection

As a professional entity, it is essential to lay firm groundwork for the protection of your business’s commercial interests and data. Many legal issues and disputes can be avoided or halted early on simply by having a specialist solicitor to provide comprehensive advice and legal drafting skills. Our business protection expertise includes:

  • Protecting confidential information and intellectual property;
  • Recovering company property;
  • Injunctions; and
  • Claims for damages and accounts of profits.

Dismissal and severance

Termination of an employment contract should always be done thoughtfully in line with written policies and the employee’s contract of employment. If the employee has brought a complaint against you for whatever reason, one option may be to offer a settlement agreement which formally ends their employment, usually in return for a sum of money and the promise of confidentiality. We can provide extensive advice in relation to settlement agreements, as well as:

  • Negotiating severance terms;
  • Garden leave; and
  • Protecting business assets.
