Contracts of employment
Our specialist contracts department can draft contracts of employment that protect your business from potential HR problems arising. We also have vast experience amending and reviewing current contracts to ensure your business is up to date with any new employment legislation.
If your business is going through employment cuts and needs to make difficult decisions about redundancy, there are many protocols to follow to avoid any legal issues arising. Healys has extensive knowledge in navigating this sensitive aspect of employment law.
Often it is necessary to make changes within the business, and this can affect the employees. Such as the need to change office location or change staff roles or employment terms. We can provide pragmatic and experienced advice, to best position you.
Forming settlement agreements is usually the most effective way to avoid legal action being taken against the company. We can support you in settlement negotiations and in drafting agreements that have the best possible outcome for your business.
We have substantial expertise in dealing with TUPE transactions and advising on all the legal implications of a transfer. Our team will provide comprehensive advice on both the practical and legal options and likely outcomes.
It is important for employers to protect the business. Restrictions in employment contracts prevent employees joining a competitor for a period of time, often up to 6 or 12 months, and prevent the solicitation of clients. It is also possible to prevent employees from having any business dealings with clients. That said, to have the protection, this must be written into the employment contracts, and it is vital the words used to describe the restrictions fits with the legal requirements, as this can be pivotal to the employer’s ability to enforce the restrictions.
We strongly recommend you have an audit carried out on your employment contracts to receive advice and ensure the business is protected.
Alleged unlawful discrimination claims can be costly to employers, and risk reputational harm. Our expert lawyers can protect your business, and often through legal representation have our clients achieve a swift outcome, having applied appropriate constructive, strategically focused, and persuasive pressure, on the other party.
