People in Your Business
We are employment solicitors providing legal advice for employers. Our employment lawyers can advise you about your obligations and how to reduce the risk of costly employment litigation.
Legal advice for employers
As an employer, you are expected to meet certain statutory minimums such as compliance with the ACAS Code policies, employee data protection rights, the national minimum wage and workplace pension scheme contributions.
To help you meet your minimum statutory requirements, it is important that you can rely on your contract terms and workplace policies and procedures. These need to be drafted in accordance with up to date law, which can change from time to time, so it is always a good idea to get advice from specialist employment solicitors.
The law may require employers to provide a written statement of particulars to employees, but we know as legal professionals that a written contract of employment is likely to offer you a broader range of employer protections. Our employment lawyers deliver this kind of insider knowledge for employers of any size.
