Employment Law For Business
At Davies and Partners, we pride ourselves on really getting to know our clients. Your business is unique, and every business will have differing needs. Our Specialist Employment Team will help you to understand not only about employment legislation, but more importantly the application of the law and how it may affect you and your business.
We offer a full range of specialist advice for employers. Use the “Areas of Employment Advice” panel to access further details.
Our specialist employment team can work in flexible ways to suit the needs of your business. For example, we can charge on a traditional hourly basis, or with a fixed fee for a particular project, of via a retainer payment. Alternatively, we offer an insurance package called Total Legal Care to cover the costs should you be involved in an ongoing legal dispute. Please contact us to discuss the different funding options we can offer your business.
We are experienced negotiators and have successfully achieved settlements in the most difficult of circumstances. However, sometimes defending a claim is unavoidable. We are also skilled advocates, and our specialist employment team regularly attend and represent Employers at Employment Tribunal and other courts.
We also offer Mediation services, where you can work with one of our experts to resolve problems in the workplace (workplace mediation) or after an employee has left the organisation (employment mediation) by helping participants achieve a consensus or a resolution around the issues affecting conflicting parties.
Our specialist employment team also offers training services to employers, either at your workplace or at one of 5 office locations. This could include training on disciplinary and grievance procedures, how to conduct oneself in an employment tribunal, dealing with a difficult employee, managing performance reviews, or providing equality training to avoid discrimination cases.
Employer Insurance and Retainer Services
Our aim is to make dealing with employment issues as straightforward and pain free as possible for businesses. We recognise that each business has separate requirements and we are totally flexible with the ways in which we offer our services to best meet the requirements of each business.
Some businesses prefer to engage us in the traditional way by paying for our services as and when required at an agreed hourly rate. Sometimes businesses prefer to instruct us to undertake a specific project for a fixed price. We are finding that more and more businesses like to engage us on a retainer basis. Basically this means that a company pays a set monthly fee and then uses us as required without worrying about how costs are escalating.
Davies and Partners’ specialist employment team also offer a Total Legal Care service for employers. This is an insurance package to ensure that if the worst comes to the worst, employers have the funding to defend a tribunal claim and can continue to instruct us without undergoing an administrative nightmare as the claim is assessed. We take no commission in relation to this scheme. It is all about providing peace of mind and effective and efficient legal service.
