To be successful, employers must actively manage their businesses – including taking tough employment decisions when necessary. Availability, speed, accuracy and clarity of advice are all vital. But even more important are the adviser’s abilities to listen, to grasp the situation on the ground and to provide a service tailored to that business context.

We work as part of our employer clients’ teams to support decision-making processes, ensuring that decisions are as robust as they can be and where necessary defending them against challenge. Much of this work is behind the scenes – keeping our clients out of the Courts and Tribunals and so more able to focus on ensuring greater success for their organisations.

No employment issue is without risk. But ultimately the greatest employment risk for any organisation is to let things slide. Having our specialist expertise and hands-on approach with them all the way gives our clients the added confidence to take a firm grip, to reward excellence, deal with mediocrity (or worse) and build for the future.

Employment law can be complex and is constantly changing. We keep our clients up to date with changes and offer tailored employment training sessions free of charge to those employer clients who regularly instruct us.

The pages in this section cover the main areas in which we provide support and services to employers. However, they do not cover everything. Employment issues are as diverse as can be: anger, grief, envy, passion, ego, spite, lust, hate, loyalty, greed, love … all human life can be found in them! So, if you do not find what you are looking for in these pages, pick up the phone and give us a call, or drop us an email. We will almost certainly have come across a similar issue to the one you face – and will have learnt from the experience.
