How We Can Help You
Establishing and Maintaining Strong Practices
Many of the employment issues your business may face can be minimised by establishing strong company practices early and maintaining them. This starts with having comprehensive employee contracts that you review regularly, but also extends to other key documents, such as your employee handbook.
For businesses that are restructuring, Shams Williams can help you update your company policies and ensure your employees continue to enjoy their legal rights.
In some cases, it may be necessary for your business to remove employees, whether through dismissal or redundancy. In these instances, it is essential that you follow the correct legal steps and your own company procedures.
If you don’t, you may leave your business open an employment tribunal claim, which can cost you significant time and money. Our solicitors can advise you on the best way to remove employees legally, so your business is not at risk.
Protecting Your Business
Where an employment issue does arise and your business is at risk, our team is on hand to help you resolve any dispute in the right way for you. If a resolution cannot be reached amicably, our litigation solicitors are highly experienced in successfully defending employers in court, while also taking all possible steps to minimise reputational damage.
In these events, acting quickly is essential, so if your business is under threat, get in touch with our time to book a free initial consultation.
