Employment Law

Employment Law is a huge and diverse area that is having a major impact on the workplaceand on many work associated situations. Robert Lunn and Lowth are solicitors who can guide you on a number of such matters.

These may include:-

  • Redundancy
  • Unfair Dismissal
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Disability Rights
  • Discrimination
  • Employment Contracts
  • Compromise Agreements
  • Contracts of employment.
  • Disciplinary procedures.
  • Grievance procedures.
  • Policy documentation (e.g. email, Internet usage, health and safety etc).
  • Staff handbooks.
  • Drafting of letters to employees.
  • Redundancy consultation advice.
  • Company restructuring.
  • Appraisals.
  • Tackling poor performance.
  • Advice on the Equality Act 2010.
  • Parental rights.
  • Compromise agreements.
  • Transfer of businesses and undertakings ("TUPE").

This area of law has undergone many changes in recent times and as a result, can be a complex area to understand. If you require advice or guidance on any aspect relating to your employment whether it be understanding the terms of an employment contract, or finding your self in a situation where your employment is at risk, then contact us to arrange an appointment to discuss your concerns.

We can arrange a fixed fee interview to assess your situation and discuss what options are best suited to your needs. An estimate of our charges for subsequent work and advice will be given to you once we know what options you wish to pursue, so that you are fully informed at the outset as to the likely costs involved.

The current economic climate has made Settlement Agreements a significant part of the employment landscape.

Correct consultation periods for redundancies are often now being overlooked. Even small employers should follow consultation proceedures and failure to do so can lead to a finding that a redundancy is in fadt an unfair dismissal. 

We can provide assesment and advice from a solicitor experienced in Settlement Agreements. The effects of a Settlement Agreement can be very significant for an employee. We can provide expert advice in this area including independent legal advice to meet the requirements of Section 203 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 from an independent solicitor at our office in Stratford upon Avon who can advise as to the merits of a potential Settlement Agreements
