  • Claims involving unlawful deduction from wages

Our commercial practice also gives us a good working knowledge of transfer of undertakings or "TUPE" regulations – a prerequisite in handling mergers and acquisitions. We are therefore in a position, alongside our business team, to provide a composite service to business clients.

We also have advised in relation to agency worker issues and we have experience in dealing with large group action trade union claims.

We regularly provide advice to employers and employees regarding redundancy consultation and entitlements, disciplinary grievance and capability issues, and the drafting of contracts of employment, restrictive covenants and policy and staff handbook contents.

We also advise clients on severance and compromise agreements.
