Documentation & Review
We’ll enable you to set up robust contractual and policy documentation tailored to meet the needs of any type of industry and any size of employer – ranging from an SME or startup with one employee, through to multi-national corporations with thousands of employees.
Simply, if your policy and contractual documentation is in order, it is likely that the number of employment issues that your business will encounter will reduce.
W Davies can help you ensure that all documentation is reviewed and amended on an on-going basis, as and when necessary.
Redundancy & Collective Consultation
The W Davies team of skilled Employment solicitors can provide expert advice on any redundancy or collective consultation situation.
We’ll assist your team to ensure that all relevant communication is clear and meaningful so that you’re able to transition through what can be a difficult period as smoothly as possible.
Termination of Employment
Our Employment solicitors can also deal with any issues arising after termination of employment, such as breach of restrictive covenants and confidentiality.
As expert Employment Lawyers, W Davies will provide a swift and accurate analysis of any employment situation, problem or dispute.
We combine this with practical legal advice and assistance to help implement all the necessary steps to address the problem, whether this be by mediation, negotiation or, as a last resort, litigation.
We will work with you to agree a strategy to ensure the best result for your business.
Our solicitors are always conscious of the cost implications in all areas of work that we do, including employment law. We will endeavour to negotiate the settlement of any issue for you in the most cost effective manner possible. Furthermore, we will ensure your business is protected in any settlement reached.
We always recommend that you involve us from the start. A suitable degree of advice taken at an early stage in any matter involving redundancy, disciplinary procedure, grievance, discrimination or any other potentially problematic area is an excellent investment. You will find that this saves substantial cost, hassle and risk at a later date.
As an employer, you can request our assistance throughout each step in an employment matter. This could commence with advice on the handling of internal procedures right through to the conclusion of the matter before an Employment Tribunal or Court.
We are happy to provide ‘one off’ consultations to enable you to deal with specific problems or issues.
HR Support For Your Team
Our Employment solicitors can provide confidential help and assistance regarding your staff policies and procedures. This is intended to make your HR team’s role more straightforward and to minimise risks / exposure to them and to you should things go wrong.
In addition to specific problem cases or issues, we can also help HR departments or individuals implement structural changes or tackle specific employment related projects or issues. For example, W Davies can assist HR managers in dealing with planned redundancies, mergers and takeovers, maternity and paternity issues, dismissals and performance issues, as well as more practical guidance on how to effectively manage employees with health-related issues and their ability to continue in their role.
We will help ensure that your team have a comprehensive understanding of employer’s and employee rights and can guide them on how best to implement the most appropriate strategy in resolving any employment issue or problem.
