Employment law solicitors for employers and business owners

Employment Law for Employers

Legal advice for employers, business owners and managers

Our experienced employment law solicitors can advise employers, business owners and managers about how to resolve employment law problems and workplace disputes.

We advise employers about defending employment tribunal claims and can represent them in negotiations, at tribunals and during Acas conciliation.

Employers can instruct us to help with specific employment law issues, on an individual matter basis.

Alternatively, employers can become retained clients and benefit from our legal and HR support service, for day to day legal and HR advice whenever they need it, for an annual fixed fee.

Employment law advice

We can help employers seeking legal advice about many employment law issues, including:

  • Employment law dispute resolution.
  • Changes to terms and conditions of employment.
  • Disciplinary, grievance and performance review procedures.
  • Discrimination and the Equality Act.
  • Dismissals and terminations.
  • Redundancy and lay offs.
  • Settlement agreements.
  • Restructuring.
  • TUPE transfers.
  • Flexible working.
  • Agency workers and contractors.
  • Restrictive covenants.
  • Confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements.

Fixed fee employment law HR support

For an annual fixed fee, employers can get direct advice and support from an experienced employment lawyer whenever they need it. The service covers day to day advice about employment relations and employee disputes.

As part of the service we make sure employment contracts are legally compliant and that all the right HR policies and procedures are in employee handbooks. We can draft a complete set of suitable documents if required, and keep them updated.

Bishopsgate Law retained client employers get direct support from one of our SRA-regulated employment lawyers through telephone, e-mail, video calls and document sharing.

Employment tribunal representation

If you are facing an employment tribunal claim from an employee, we can advise you about defending the claim and represent you at the tribunal. We can also act for you during Acas conciliation, or conduct pre-claim negotiations if necessary.

Where a claim has already been lodged with the tribunal we can act for you and negotiate with the claimant or their representatives to try and settle the claim. We are experienced in providing pragmatic solutions to minimise liabilities and resolve problems in the most efficient and cost-effective way we can.
