Helping your business work

Employment Law can be complex although it should not stop you from running your business. Legal advice can be necessary although it should be appropriate for your size and resources. Fortunately, with advice from our experienced team of employment specialists, you can have confidence in making the right decisions for you and your employees, helping your business work.

We act for businesses of all sizes, from start-ups through to SMEs as well as for larger limited companies and PLCs, yet always aim to provide a personal service that is tailored to our client’s needs. That is why our range of services is aimed at providing your business with the highest quality legal advice, but in a way that works best for you.

As UK Employment Law continues to evolve, there is only likely to be greater scrutiny of employers’ decisions, policies, and processes. A one-size-fits-all approach to Employment Law and HR advice simply will not work. Instead, the Employment Team at Jacksons Law Firm takes a practical and flexible approach, providing businesses with options on how to access our legal advice and HR support.

The key is understanding our clients’ businesses

For some clients, we are available to provide advice as and when necessary, for others our role involves acting as a virtual HR manager. Larger organizations tend to have internal HR resources, however, they also find that complex issues arise more frequently – for these clients we provide support to their HR team and commercial insight for strategic decision-making.

We regularly advise clients in connection with the following matters:

  • Unfair dismissal including constructive dismissal
  • Breach of contract and wrongful dismissal
  • Employment status
  • Discrimination
  • Contracts, handbooks, policies, and procedures
  • Disciplinary and grievance proceedings
  • Sickness absence and performance management
  • Reorganisations and redundancy
  • Working time, holidays, and other leave (including maternity, paternity, and adoption leave)
  • TUPE – business transfers and service provision changes
  • Confidential information, restrictive covenants, and garden leave
  • Whistleblowing (protected disclosures)
  • Business Immigration
  • Severance packages and settlement agreements
