If you are contacted by ACAS or find yourself defending a claim, we can provide advice about the prospects of success, and if required pragmatic advice about the option of settlement. We have experience at all stages of the Tribunal process from Early Conciliation and preliminary hearings through to witness statements and final hearings.
RENDUNDANCIES & RESTRUCTURES
If your business is moving in a different direction and you need to think about how best to structure for its new challenges, you may need advice on possible re-organisation. We has experience of designing fair and transparent re-organisation programmes which are tailored to business needs while minimising the risk of dispute.
When you feel the relationship with an employee is no longer sustainable and you want to reach an amicable exit with no fuss, we can prepare and assist in drawing the employment to an end via settlement agreement. We will walk you through the whole process smoothly so all conversations and correspondence is handled in the right way.
