Chambers ranks Capital Law’s Employment team in Band 1, the highest category, and describes them as “very client-focused and business-focused”. Key individuals in the team are described as having a “tenacious approach to employment disputes” and an “ability to communicate legal issues in layman's terms”.
At Capital Law, we’ve built a sound reputation for first class employment law advice and support. Combined with our partnership with HR consultancy Consult Capital Ltd, it puts us in a unique position. It means we can offer both expert legal services plus an extensive range of consultancy and training wherever you are in the UK.
Our Employment team can help your organisation:
- comply with employment law legislation
- manage and resolve workplace issues.
We draft and update terms and conditions for employers and negotiate terms on behalf of employees.
When a business is taken over by another, the law protects employees from being dismissed. The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations ensures the new employer complies with certain guarantees. Our team regularly guides employers through these procedures and advises employees on their rights.
Sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion or belief.
Terminating the employment of senior level officers is rarely straightforward. We advise businesses on the law and the commerciality, allowing both parties to move on. We also advise senior officers on their rights and the termination packages they have been offered.
Disciplinary and grievance
- draft and review policies and procedures
- advise employers on the best course of action
- act as independent investigators in a disciplinary or grievance matter.
We advise on:
- changing employee terms and conditions
- new company structures
- consultation and announcements
- process and risk management.
The sooner you involve us in any workplace issue the better. That way we can guide through the right procedures and help reduce the risk of a successful tribunal claim. Sometimes employers terminate an employee’s employment without fully understanding the implications. We can help minimise the effect of repercussions and reduce your liability to compensate the employee. We also advise individuals who may have been unfairly dismissed.
Our lawyers are experienced advocates and so represent clients at employment tribunal hearings if these prove necessary.
The Employment team also offers:
- A human resources consultancy, Consult Capital
- Employment Law and HR Training
- Fixed Price Service
- Mediation, Facilitation & Investigation Services
- Employment related Pensions advice- click here to e-mail us with your query
"This DVD is an excellent guided tour through the whole process; it is clear, informative and above all practical, and I would recommend it to anyone likely to be involved in an employment tribunal."
