Employment Law Manchester


Employment law is one of the most rapidly changing fields of UK law. A raft of EU employment regulations in particular has added to the day to day burden of running a business. Our experience and wide-ranging knowledge of employment law can help with disciplinary matters, dismissals, or equality issues involving race, sex, sexual orientation or disability. We can also frame contracts of employment, service contracts for directors, procedural rules or employment policies.

Specifically we can advise on:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Disciplinary and Grievances
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Compromise agreements
  • Contracts of Employment and Employee Handbooks
  • Equal pay
  • Acquisitions and mergers
  • Redundancy
  • Transfer of undertakings
  • Discrimination
  • Business re-organisation

As with almost all legal matters, the early recourse to a solicitor, offers the best opportunity to mitigate a potentially awkward employment situation before it becomes a major concern. Our resourcefulness enables us to draw upon a range of developed solutions to a variety of problems. We deliver sensible legal advice with a business focus.

In today’s increasingly litigious environment, it is fundamental to the interests of every business, large or small, that it should conduct its affairs in line with the requirements both of the Employment Rights Act and discrimination laws.

Properly drafted policies, matched with appropriate systems of training and monitoring are essential to avoid employment law problems.
