Employment for Individuals
Creative, bespoke, personable and passionate
Whether an individual is facing a disciplinary at work, or feels they are being unfairly treated, we can assist. We are able to draft grievances or appeals on the individual’s behalf and prepare them for upcoming meetings or hearings.
We provide guidance if an employee is at risk of redundancy. We understand this can be a very stressful and confusing time for employees and our expert lawyers will help to minimise any concerns.
We negotiate swift and amicable exits for employees as well as being able to adopt a robust approach as and when needed. We understand the drivers of our individual clients and put their priorities first.
For those contemplating departure or their next career move, we are experienced in advising on settlement agreements and executive severances as well as reviewing terms and conditions including post termination restrictions.
As we often advise businesses, we are able to identify potential weakness or flaws in an employer’s approach and use this to help our individual clients achieve their targets in a timely manner.
Our clients consider us an integral part of their career management, knowing that we are always on their side.
