As an employer, you already know that your people are your most important asset and want to develop and protect them. As an employee, you strive to do the best you possibly can for your employer. That’s a great foundation for your working relationship.
However, in recent years, there have been significant changes in Employment Law – influenced by Brussels and EU Law – which have changed, perhaps more than in any other area of law, the rules governing relationships between employers and employees. Whether you’re an employer or an employee, it’s not always practical or necessary for you to worry about shifting legislation, so consult Colemans. We’ll give you sound and relevant legal advice and draft documentation that not only complies with legal obligations but also provides a strong framework for your working relationships.
Our lawyers are certainly highly qualified and experienced in the most complex of cases but they’re equally friendly and approachable. When you work with us you’ll get the benefit of City experience delivered in a way that will make sense, and secure the best possible outcome. You’ll also build a relationship with your solicitor that will be open and reliable.
Disputes between employers and employees do happen and when they do, end either in a Settlement Agreement or an Employment Tribunal ruling. We have the experience required to advise both employers and employees on the strengths and weaknesses of their position, and to manage and represent them at all stages, including at an Employment Tribunal.
