At Employment Law Practice we provide advice to employers on the entire range of employment law issues. As a business we do understand that an employer does not want to be spending a huge amount of time and money dealing with employment law issues.

However, it is a fact of life that employment law does impose a large number of obligations on employers, and we see it as our job to help employers deal with this in the most productive way possible, in the hope that this will ultimately have a positive effect on their business and their staff. We believe that if employers are willing to take our advice in relation to how matters such as employment contracts, disciplinary and grievance procedures, equal opportunities, restructuring, and retirement should be approached, this will result in benefits to their business in the long run.

Our advice can save employers thousands of pounds by protecting them from successful Employment Tribunal claims. Our advice in relation to contracts and policies can make it far easier for employers to deal with problem employees in the future. We are happy to assist employers with employment law issues which have already arisen in the workplace, but we would also encourage employers to take our advice at an earlier stage in the hope that this can prevent costly issues from arising in the future. We firmly believe in the theory that it is worth spending a penny now with a view to saving a pound later!

If you feel that we can be of assistance in relation to any employment law matter please feel free to telephone or email us in the first instance. Please also rest assured that we understand that the majority of employers do not have unlimited funds to spend on legal fees. For this reason we have developed a unique discounted employment law package for employers, which is designed to provide excellent value for money and a constant advice link with our firm. We also offer fixed fees for specific pieces of work as required. More details are provided on our fees page.

We recommend that employers contact us for a no-obligation discussion at the earliest possible stage in order that we can provide the best and most cost-effective advice.
