Commercial legal advice for employers
Our expert employment team understands the commercial needs of a business as well as the growing burden of employment legislation. We work with businesses, HR staff and managers to provide guidance, advice and representation.
We can advise you in respect of your employment law strategy and help you deal with any problems as soon as they arise, to prevent them escalating.
Working with your business
Having a strong framework in place when it comes to dealing with employees goes a long way to ensuring that your role as an employer is trouble-free. At Hutchinson Thomas we work with employers to put in place robust documentation to ensure that employees have clear guidelines to follow. This includes employment contracts, staff handbooks and legal procedures for dealing with disciplinary and other matters.
By implementing fair and efficient procedures, you will be able to deal with problems firmly and effectively but without breaching employee rights.
Wherever possible, we will help you resolve employee disagreements without recourse to the courts, to save time and money. We will make sure you have all the information and guidance you need about the options available to you so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed. Our advice is always clear, pragmatic and commercially-focused.
We are strong negotiators and will work proactively to find an acceptable solution so that you can avoid the disruption of litigation. However, if a dispute should proceed to court or to an employment tribunal, we will provide robust representation.
