Employment law is some of the most complicated there is, and yet so many people struggle with it without legal help. It can be difficult to know what rules apply to you, and how to avoid the many traps and time limits which can catch you out.

How Davis Gregory can help

There are many different aspects of employment law which we can help with. Below are a few examples of the type of work we deal with:

  • For new staff there are contracts to be prepared and signed.
  • If difficulties arise during  work there are grievance procedures to be managed correctly, and discrimination to be avoided.
  • If plans are being made to bring employment to an end, then redundancy or other grounds must be examined carefully to avoid unfair dismissal. Even if a staff member is leaving by agreement, usually an employment settlement agreement should be prepared, and independent advice given to the employee about its effects.
