Employment Law

Employment legislation is constantly changing.  We at Dawson Hart have a specialist employment department which will work with you to safeguard your business.  The biggest pitfalls for an employer are the lack of flexibility and appropriate documentation to enable the successful management of staff.  You must have the ability to discipline, dismiss, make redundancies or vary the terms of employment without fear of a claim.

We can produce and update any contracts, policies and draft standard letters you may require.  We can also provide continued support and advice to your business and give you instant advice on the telephone.  Our employment team can help you through all the recent changes in employment law, including:

  • Employment contracts, policies and procedures
  • Disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • Sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief and age discrimination
  • Business sales and acquisitions affecting employees ("TUPE")
  • Redundancy and other dismissals
  • Absence through sickness
  • Board level disputes
  • Settlement agreements 
  • Maternity, paternity and flexible working rights 
  • References for employees
  • Part time workers, agency workers and atypical employment arrangements 
  • Bullying or stress at work claims
  • Employment Tribunal advice and representation 

We appreciate that running a business can be costly.  We are proud to provide a cost effective service.  Where possible, we will agree a fixed fee with you before commencing a piece of work, otherwise we will always give you a clear estimate for the work that we do and keep you informed of your costs. 

Some clients make a regular payment over a period of time.  If this is your preference, our 'dh Employment Protection Scheme', by which we provide employment advice to your business, backed up by insurance cover for tribunal claims for an agreed monthly payment, may be of interest to you.   This scheme provides employment documentation and telephone/email advice to your business.  Alternatively, we also offer various retainer schemes allowing businesses to choose a package to suit their specific requirements and needs.

We recognise that our clients do not have the time to keep up to date with all the changes in employment law.  If you wish, we can send you our regular e-bulletins which are free of charge updating you on the latest employment law issues affecting your business.  Please e-mail Victoria Regan to be put on the mailing list vxr@dawson-hart.co.uk

Furthermore, it is also the case that no two businesses have the same requirements for employment advice.  Therefore in addition to uncomplicated and cost effective legal advice we offer a range of other HR and employment services to suit your needs so that you can concentrate on running your business.
