We act for employers to help resolve workplace issues quickly and amicably, so you can get back to focusing on your business.
If you have an employment concern, we strongly advise you to contact Sheppersons at the earliest opportunity, as this may enable us to settle the matter through mediation. As we also advise employees with respect to their rights in the workplace, including cases of harassment and discrimination, we have insight into both sides of any dispute. This is particularly valuable in helping employers to protect against costly lawsuits. We always recommend prevention and negotiation in preference to a court appearance. If, however, your case does go to court, we will be right there beside you with a robust defence.
Our expert lawyers can advise you on employment matters such as:
- Settlement agreements
- Sexual harassment
- Disciplinary action
The nature of employment is changing, with freelance and contract work becoming more common. We are able to provide you with clear, straightforward advice to help you manage these developments and make sure your contracts and policies are fit for purpose. We can also give expert guidance on other aspects of workplace law, including compliance with health and safety, data protection and other legal requirements.
If you would like advice on avoiding workplace issues before they arise, the dynamic team at Sheppersons is here to help.
