Employment laws are becoming more complex and changes are implemented on a regular basis. At Leeds Day we make it our business to be ahead of the field. Increasingly employers need access to specialist advice to help them balance the need for efficient and profitable management against the increasing (and ever changing) rights of employees. If you are an employee, standing up for your rights against your employer can be a daunting task. There is more and more legislation that affords you certain rights during your employment and not just arising from a dismissal. Importantly, it is sometimes possible to enforce your rights but still maintain a working relationship with your employer.
We regularly advise on disputes that arise between employer and employee including wrongful and unfair dismissal, sex, race and disability discrimination, unlawful deductions from wages, redundancy and reorganisation, equal pay and treatment, confidential information, trade secrets and restrictive covenants (for example, non-competition, non-solicitation).
We also offer advice to both employers and employees to prevent a dispute arising. This includes advising on the recruitment process, offers of employment or engagement, Directors’ service agreements, terms and conditions of employment, employee handbooks, staff manuals and other training aids, consultancy agreements, equal opportunities policies, other policies (such as health and safety, disciplinary and grievance, internet, etc) and corporate support in respect to employment issues arising from mergers, acquisitions and disposals.
We act in a supportive role for many organisations in Huntingdon, St Ives, St Neots and beyond which gives us a unique understanding of employers business needs and can help tailor these with the rights of their employees. Specifically we can:
- Prepare employment contracts tailored to your business needs
- Prepare policy documentation and provide detailed advice on implementing any policy changes
- Advise on all manner of day to day employment issues
- Negotiate settlements
- Prepare Compromise Agreements
- Provide representation at Employment Tribunals
We can provide you with information which will enable you to take decisive and effective action to protect yourself and livelihood, whether you are an employer or an employee. For more information, please contact Andrew Roberts on 01480 464600 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
