What is employment law?
Employment Law is the regulation that governs employer/employee relationships in the workplace. In the UK, employment law is set in place by guidelines from the government which state what employers can legally expect and ask of their employees, and the rights in place to protect them. Some employment law related issues include:
- Unfair dismissal
- Contracts of employment
- Annual leave
- Working hours
- Redundancy, and
- Maternity leave.
These issues affect every business and can cause a great deal of hassle if not dealt with correctly and efficiently.
What employment law services do we offer employers?
Our employment law consultancy services cover every issue that employers are likely to face, and are at risk of being taken to an employment tribunal over if they are not complying. This includes annual leave, maternity pay, discrimination, working hours, minimum wage, contracts and paternity leave – just to name a few.
From our employment law advice line, which connects you to your dedicated consultant whenever you need remote support or advice, to our employment tribunal representation, we are committed to making sure that businesses across the UK are protected when it comes to employment law.
Our award-winning consultancy offers a professional employment law service exclusively to employers, business owners and managers. As part of the service, we will allocate you one of our employment law specialists to act as your dedicated consultant, offering you and your business consistent support, and ensuring that you are compliant even as the law changes.
We also create bespoke packages so that you are only paying for the specific services that your business requires; this includes one-year contracts rather than being tied into a long-term commitment, or pay as you go support. This is simply because we know that, based on our 97% retention rate, we can prove our worth to you from the moment you start using our employment law services, and after 12 months we believe that you will stay with us because you want to, and not because you are legally bound by a contract.

How employment law support can add value to your business
The biggest repercussion that you and your business could face if you are not following current employment laws, and are taken to an employment tribunal, are fines in the thousands. An employment trial can also damage your business reputation and image both publicly and internally, resulting in employee trust and productivity falling, and a decline in customers/clients/revenue.
Employment law support from qualified and experienced professionals, such as ourselves, means that you can significantly reduce the chances of being taken to an employment tribunal by an employee.
Our consultants will actively ensure that you’re doing everything that you can, and everything that you should, to remain compliant. That’s whether you come to us with a query or issue, or we update you with any changes to employment laws that you may need to act upon.
On the small possibility that a claim is made against your business, we can support and represent you through all stages of the tribunal process to ease the stress of what is a very challenging situation.
