Employment law simplified

It’s well known that employers in the UK are faced with a huge array of complex and constantly changing employment law regulations which they must navigate if they wish to avoid the prospect of an employment tribunal. The employment law team at CH Legal has many years’ experience helping all types and sizes of businesses to manage their workforce effectively, comply with their legal responsibilities, optimise recruitment processes and minimise the potential of claims. We believe that prevention is always better than cure and try to ensure that disputes are avoided altogether or resolved at the earliest opportunity, but our employment lawyers can defend any claims and represent you at an employment tribunal if necessary.

Upholding the rights of employers and employees alike

Although many of our clients are employers, the employment team at CH Legal  also regularly represents employees with a range of claims, including those relating to:

●    unfair dismissal
●    wrongful dismissal
●    constructive dismissal
●    discrimination at work
●    sexual harassment
●    redundancy

Working with both employers and employees gives us a perspective of the broad nature of employment law related disputes and puts us in the best position to be able to advise our clients and obtain a satisfactory outcome.

Cost effective and pragmatic employment advice

There are many ways to tackle potential employment law issues before they arise or nip a problem in the bud before it escalates into a potentially costly and damaging matter. Implementing a robust set of HR policies, such as disciplinary and grievance procedures, can help to ensure that employees understand their rights and responsibilities – and can also provide crucial guidance to managers on how to comply with the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures. In the case of more severe disputes, a settlement agreement is often an extremely effective way of preventing a claim going to employment tribunal.

Whatever situation you are facing in the workplace – whether as an employer or employee – the employment law team at CH Legal can help you. To find out more, get in touch with Caroline Tomlinson or call 0845 4786 354.
