Services For You Employment Law

Themis Solicitors Legal Services for Employers:

Your greatest asset as a business is your staff. If staff issues are handled badly or inconsistently within your business, morale will be low and dealing with disgruntled and complaining staff can cost you as the employer time, money, loss of profitability and in some instances, credibility with your clients or customers.

Employment law is an area of law that has an enormous volume of regulatory and statutory requirements for business owners. Falling foul of your legal requirements can be detrimental to your business, its reputation and profit.  Themis Solicitors are here to help!

Themis Solicitors can also advise employees:

Are you starting a new job and need a solicitor to review your contract?  It can be easy to get excited about your new role and simply disregard your obligations post-termination. But don’t ignore them! If things do not work out and you decide the leave your employment, you may find that you have restrictions in place that prevent you from working in specific sectors and locations for a duration of time.  Themis Solicitors are here to advise, assist and negotiate any restrictive covenants your new employer is attempting to place in our contract.

Once you are in employment, we provide advice and representation to employees needing guidance or assistance for internal proceedings or looking to bring an action in a Court or Employment Tribunal.

If your employer has invited you to attend disciplinary or performance-related proceedings, they must comply with the ACAS Code of Practice by;

Setting out the allegations against you in writing

Carry out an investigation and provide you with the opportunity to reply.

If a disciplinary proceeding is to follow, you must be notified of a hearing date.

Themis Solicitors can assist you prior to dismissal by advising you on how to respond to any allegations, and if necessary, we can draft your appeal against any disciplinary proceeding outcome.   We can further advise you of any action you can take against your employer following dismissal.  This may result in lodging ACAS Early Consolidation proceedings, an Employment Tribunal or a Court Claim.

Perhaps something has arisen at work that you are unhappy about and wish to raise a grievance with your employer.  Common grievances raised by employees include terms of employment, harassment, discrimination or pay and working conditions. Themis Solicitors pride themselves on taking the stress out of the process by providing straightforward, easily understood advice.

Redundancy can be a very daunting time for individuals. Themis Solicitor are on hand to provide you with advice and guidance through the process ensuring your employer is treating you fairly and you receive the best possible resolution in the termination of your employment.  If you are selected for redundancy, we can advise you on any proposed settlement agreement issued by your employer exploring any statutory payment you should receive and any restrictions your employer may impose following the termination of your employment.  We do not charge you for advice on settlement agreements – we invoice your employer directly.
