Contracts

 

Every employee is required by law to have a written statement of certain major terms of their contracts. It is usual for employers to produce a full contract of employment covering all aspects of the terms agreed and appropriate. 

 

We can produce contracts for employees (of different seniority) and directors to suit appropriate circumstances.

Disciplinary and Grievance 

 

Employers must have in place Disciplinary and Grievance written procedures setting out the legal rules as to how they should deal with these matters. 

 

Not only can we draft these documents but we can also advise the company on aspects of Disciplinary and Grievance procedures.

Dismissal

 

Employees who have worked for a company for a specified period have the right not to be unfairly dismissed. If their rights are breached then this can lead to significant claims for compensation in an Employment Tribunal. 

 

Employers need to be fully aware of the law as it applies to the circumstances to ensure that dismissals are fair.

Redundancy

 

Redundancy is a complex area and employers need to make certain that they are fully aware of the law and apply the appropriate procedures. If they do not then this can give rise to a claim for unfair dismissal.  We can advise on what employers should and should not do.

Settlement Agreements

 

In most cases where employees leave on terms other than where they have simply given notice without any dispute companies should arrange for the employee to agree and sign a Settlement Agreement to ensure that after they leave they do not take the employer to an Employment Tribunal for some form of claim. 

 

We can provide employers with appropriate forms of Settlement Agreements.
