Employment Law and the rights and obligations conferred through an employment relationship are regarded as a minefield for employers and bewildering for employees. Generally, professional advice and the information resources available to employers and employees do little to dispel this feeling. Employment law solicitors and employment law advisors are usually polarised in their approach, acting always either for the employer or for the employee. As a consequence their respective views and approach to employment law issues can become entrenched depending upon which party they are accustomed to act for. For this reason it is always better, albeit more difficult, to retain an advisor with experience of acting for a variety of clients, from PLC's and multinationals through to SMEs, owner managed businesses, senior executives and multiple party or single party employee claims. Only this level of experience can guarantee a truly balanced and ultimately more valuable level of service and advice.

This site seeks to unravel some of the complexity associated with employment law by concentrating on the core issues which affect us all. There is a section on Employment Law Issues which identifies the most common areas of employment law which both employers and employees must deal with. There is a separate section on Employment Law Procedures which is geared to employers and which identifies the correct procedures to be followed with employees in cases of poor performance, sickness absence, disciplinary matters and redundancy dismissals. A downloadbale PowerPoint presentation is also available in this section.


Both employers and employees may wish to access the Sample Documents section for examples of key employment documentation (please note that the samples are not for general use and subject to this site's legal disclaimer). Finally, the main section of the site deals with the Employment Tribunal itself, its practice and procedure, how claims are made and how matters proceed in the Tribunal. Within this section there is an examination in some detail of the concept of Unfair Dismissal which is the basis for the overwhelmingly majority of claims brought, settled or defended in the Employment Tribunal system.

Regular newsletters are also posted to the site on Employment Law developments both through the introduction of UK or European legislation and through the development of case law and there is the facility to be placed on an electronic mailing list for future employment law updates. However all site content is subject to the site's legal disclaimer and the information contained on this site is neither intended nor should it be used as an alternative to seeking appropriate professional advice tailored according to the specific facts of any individual case.

If you find this site useful please forward the site's details and web address to anyone who may benefit from its contents.
