Employment Law for business
Whether you’re a small enterprise or a large corporation, our dedicated team of employment law for business specialists are here to help steer you through the intricate world of employment law and employer services.
At AmicusLaw we understand the importance of having a strong legal foundation for your business. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of services covering most employment law issues that you are likely to come across, including settlement agreement disputes, protected conversations, workplace harassment issues, and more. Our team of experts are also highly equipped to handle a diverse range of employment-related challenges, including damaging conflicts and other sensitive matters. As part of our employer services, we provide support in employee selection and interviewing, contract and restrictive covenant drafting and enforcing, disciplinary and grievance procedures, flexible working arrangements, self-employment matters, sickness absence management, discrimination and equal pay claims, redundancy procedures, dispute resolution, unfair dismissal cases, settlement agreements, and TUPE matters.
The employment relationship is governed by a combination of contract law and statute. Falling foul of either of these components can be a recipe for disaster. However, in addition to the law, the relationship between bosses and employees is frequently very personal, and a breakdown in this important aspect of many people’s lives can be as equally disruptive. Finding a good balance between the needs of the employer and the expectations of the workforce is difficult, especially in light of new working practices, the economic climate, and an increasingly sophisticated and savvy workforce. Our employment lawyers and employment team can guide you through this should any employment disputes arise.
With our expertise and dedication to your success, you can trust us to safeguard your business and employees while providing effective and efficient legal solutions. We are here to help you build a solid legal framework for your business and guide you through any employment-related challenges you may face.
The starting point for any employment relationship is the contract of employment. Often all that is required is a simple statement governing the terms of the employment. The gov.uk website has a list of what is required and Law Depot has a very simple document on its website (please note no recommendation is given here).
Many contracts, however, require a more detailed approach: for instance when the workforce is part-time, zero-hours contracts are required, or a new senior employee is hired. A custom contract will be needed in these cases.
You can expect to pay somewhere between £625 and £1,000 (+ VAT) for a tailored agreement to be drafted.
