What non-contentious issues can we help with?
- Drafting and advising on legal documents and agreements, including, but not limited to, Employment Contracts, Settlement Agreements, Non-Disclosure Agreements, Restrictive Covenants;
- Advising on disciplinary procedures, sickness absence procedures, and redundancy procedures;
- Advising on the proposed terms of any settlement agreement, negotiating enhanced settlement agreement terms, advising on post termination restrictions;
- Advising in circumstances where an employer’s activities are transferred to another employer further to a relevant transfer – so that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) are engaged;
- Data Protection and Freedom of Information matters; we can assist you to submit a Subject Access Request to your employer.
What contentious issues can we help with?
- We can provide representation and assistance at any stage in the timeline of an Employment Tribunal claim, and can negotiate settlements with the employer, the prospective Employment Tribunal Respondent through the ACAS Early Conciliation process;
- We can assist you to understand the prospects of success of your asserted Tribunal claims (provide you with advice on merit), we can accurately assess the value any Tribunal claim and prepare a Schedule of Loss, we can assist you to attempt to negotiate a settlement of any Tribunal claim within the terms of a settlement agreement, and we can assist you to pursue your Tribunal claim to the Final Hearing;
- We can assist in the preparation of all documents prior to a Final Hearing in the Employment Tribunal, including a Schedule of Loss, Witness Statements, Trial Bundles, Chronologies and Cast Lists. Well prepared documentary evidence will assist the Tribunal and may improve the prospects of the Tribunal upholding the claim.
What are the costs?
- We offer affordable and flexible fee structures, including fixed fee arrangements, to provide our clients with a cost-efficient service.
- In appropriate cases we may offer a Damages Based Agreement (usually called a “no win no fee” agreement) as a way of managing the costs of legal services.
Our accredited mediator, Rajinder Rai, can provide a more conciliatory approach to employment problems. This can be extremely valuable when a claim from an employee is made whilst still in employment and when both sides wish to protect and maintain their working relationship. We can provide representation for both parties in the mediation process.
