Advice for employers

Call us on: 023 9264 0292

Employees are becoming more aware of their rights and appear more prepared to litigate in pursuit of those rights.  With no fees for submitting a claim to the Tribunals, it is essential that employers are able to safeguard their interests.

We can provide straight talking, easy-to-understand advice on employment issues including contracts of employment, discrimination, redundancy, maternity and paternity leave, Tribunals, disciplinary action, grievance procedures and dismissal.

Laws governing employment are constantly changing. Contact us to make sure you stay fully up to date.

 

Our Fees

You can have the benefit of specialist advice for a very reasonable rate of £150 per hour.  We are not VAT registered.

 

Our Services

MLL Direct

Call us to find out more about the MLL Direct service.  We can provide you with a fixed-fee monthly advice service which enables you to contact our specialist employment lawyer up to three times per month, either by phone or email – and all from just £50 per month.

Redundancy

Redundancy is a complex process with tough decisions to be made. You may be at risk of facing a claim for unfair dismissal if you do not do it correctly. Let us guide you through this minefield to help you to stay out of the Employment Tribunal.

Unfair Dismissal

Do you have a problem involving the dismissal of an employee? Any dismissal needs to be managed carefully to avoid the pitfalls. Let us help you through the disciplinary and dismissal process to try to keep you on the right side of the law.

Contracts and Staff Handbook

We can provide contracts for an employer’s particular needs and handbooks that protect employers from unnecessary problems. Our straightforward and practical documents are easy to read and even easier to understand. We can also check your employment documentation to make sure it is as up to date as it needs to be.

Breach of contract

Sometimes a breach of contract could lead to a claim for damages or for unfair dismissal if the employee resigns. We can work with you to help avoid these claims and we can help you to defend them if there is a claim against you already.

Settlement Agreements

Do you need a reliable agreement that can be put together quickly and provide the protection your company needs? If so, then we can help using our wealth of experience in representing employer clients.

Harassment

Under the Equality Act, claims of harassment can be made in relation to age, sex, race, religion or belief, disability, gender reassignment, and sexual orientation. Let us help you to understand whether there has been harassment that could lead to a claim. We can also help with contracts and handbooks that help prevent harassment and protect the company.

Discrimination

What is discrimination? It is less favourable treatment because of age, sex, race, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, religion or belief, or sexual orientation. We can help you to understand what “less favourably” really means. We can also help you to be aware of what is needed to avoid costly discrimination claims being made against you.

Bullying at work

What constitutes bullying? Let us help you to understand so that you can stop it happening. If the behaviour is bad enough there may be a claim for unfair dismissal if your employee resigns. Let us help you as an employer to avoid this and keep your company out of the Tribunal.

Equal Pay

Do you have male and female employees carrying out the same work as each other but being paid differently? It may be possible that they have a claim under the Equality Act. We can help you to understand what is required and guide you through the process.

Tribunal claims

Our expert employment lawyers can guide you through the necessary steps in responding to a claim to the Employment Tribunal. We can carry out the entire range of work from submitting a response up to and including representation at a Tribunal hearing. Our practical help is invaluable when going through a stressful situation.

TUPE Regulations

Most people know that TUPE has the effect of transferring an employee to the new owner’s employment when a business is sold. But what other effects are there and how do you stay on the right side of this law? We can cut through the red tape and explain it all to you clearly and concisely.
