Employment

Running a business today requires employers to take all precautions to avoid being on the receiving end of an Employment Tribunal claim. The onus on Employers to move with the times when more and more complex Employment legislation is being introduced into previously untouched areas has never been greater.

At Silver Shemmings we understand:

  • The challenges faced by employers in dealing with the tide of regulation and the onset of the “compensation culture”.
  • It is important for employers not to make mistakes in picking through the red tape as these can be costly both in terms of compensation and the glare of publicity      engendered by an Employment Tribunal claim.
  • Employers need to have robust procedures in place to ensure they avoid insurmountable claims that they have acted unfairly.
  • Employers need to be advised of the merits of a defence at an early stage and to be advised through the twists and turns of Employment Litigation.
  • Employers need to act quickly and decisively in ensuring they are perceived as having acted reasonably by an Employment Tribunal.

Silver Shemmings can use their experience and knowledge to provide assistance in:

    • Compromise agreements
    • Contracts of employment
    • Unfair Dismissal
    • Constructive Dismissal
    • Wrongful Dismissal/Breach of Contract
    • TUPE
    • Discrimination
    • Bullying/Harassment
    • Whistleblowing/Protected Disclosures
    • Maternity/Paternity Rights
    • Working

We can also assist with advising you on your employment contracts, interim procedures, handbook, grievance and disciplinary procedures to ensure they are compliant with current legislation.

We have an understanding of the challenges faced by you. If a claim arises we can use our experience and knowledge to increase the chances of a favourable outcome and we can offer a cost effective “one stop shop” service to include the conduct of the case throughout, including representation and advocacy at the hearing.
