We have a wealth of experience, acting on behalf of employers and employees, dealing with both contentious and non-contentious employment work, including particularly redundancy consultations, selection and dismissal procedures.
We provide specialist advice and assistance in preparing Settlement Agreements on behalf of employers. In addition we often advise departing employees on proposed ‘without prejudice’ severance arrangements and, in particular, the waiver and settlement of their contractual and statutory rights arising on the termination of their employment and the terms and effect of Settlement Agreements.
We advise on a wide variety of employment issues including:
grievances and subject access requests under GDPR
contracts of employment and Director's service agreements
termination of employment and loss of office
breach of contract
disciplinary and performance review investigations and proceedings
post termination restrictive covenants
TUPE and commercial business due diligence issues
We frequently act for company directors and senior executives, dealing with complex and often sensitive high value commercial cases. We provide practical and robust advice, which is of paramount importance in this area of law. We aim to help resolve employment disputes and protect our client's position and achieve their objectives.
