Employment Law for Companies

The law relating to employees' and workers’ rights has become increasingly complex and extensive. At Gullands, our team has wide experience in advising both employers and employees  on various issues. We liaise direct with owner/managers and provide assistance to  Human Resources Directors or departments of larger businesses. We make sure that our clients are compliant with their statutory, contractual and other legal obligations, while at the same time never losing sight of the overarching commercial objectives of the business. Some of the most common queries are:

  • Advice on a new contract or updating your old contracts and employee handbooks
  • How to manage an effective Disciplinary process
  • How to deal with an employee Grievance
  • Can I suspend an employee and how long can it be for?
  • Are our Restrictive covenants enforceable and how do we do this?
  • Can I put an employee on Garden leave?
  • Should I offer an employee a Settlement Agreement, what should it cover and what will it cost?
  • How to manage an employee on long term sick leave?
  • How to dismiss without opening the Company to a unfair/discriminatory claim?
  • How do I respond to an Employment Tribunal claim received and what will it cost?

For a quick chat about your particular issue and to discuss legal assistance with matters related to those or any other issue you may have please contact our legal team either by telephone on: 01622 689750 via email: info@gullands.com or by completing our online contact form.

This advice can apply to employment contracts, handbooks, policies and internal procedures, making sure that our clients are compliant with their statutory, contractual and other legal obligations, while at the same time never losing sight of the overarching commercial objectives of the business.
