Business & Employment Law
Employment law continues to undergo considerable and far-reaching changes; a recent example being the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations that came into effect in October 2006.
All of which places an increasing burden on employers to keep pace not only with their own obligations, but also with the evolving rights of employees.
We can advise on the most up-to-date position and how current and new legislation affects your business; including advice on TUPE obligations. We can also act on your behalf to defend claims made by employees or negotiate terms for contracts.
We strive to build long term relationships with clients so the advice we give does not simply cater for the needs of your business today, but extends to deal with the common issues that may emerge in the future. So as your business develops and grows, you have the peace of mind of knowing associated issues have already been anticipated and attended to, wherever possible.
