Employment Services

Businesses have different ways of managing their workforces. You may have a full internal human resources team. You may employ a single personnel manager. Perhaps you don’t have a designated HR function at all.

Whichever type of business you are, you will probably need legal advice from time to time. From a sounding board for your plan to deal with an absent employee, to intensive support that takes you through a redundancy exercise or a TUPE transfer. Our team at Littlestone Cowan Solicitors is here for the day-to-day queries, as well as those larger projects.  

We advise businesses of all sizes and in all sectors on the employment law issues that affect them. We’re quick to understand you, your situation and the outcome you’re looking to achieve. And we’ll design the best route to get you there, however complex the issue is or could become.

The implications of getting employment law and HR best practice wrong can hit businesses hard. That’s not just in terms of the financial consequences of defending tribunal claims, but also when it comes to reputation and workforce morale. Our team is mindful of the factors that have a bearing on the decisions you need to make. And we’ll ensure that you are protected on all levels.  

We offer experienced advice on the following:

  • Contracts of employment
  • Data Protection 
  • Disciplinary action and grievance procedures
  • Discrimination
  • Employment Tribunals
  • Family-friendly policies
  • Maternity, paternity and adoption leave
