The COVID19 pandemic has meant that we have all had to deal with many concepts that we have not had to grapple with before, and that is particularly relevant in relation to employment law. If you require any advice and assistance on employment issues, whether it relates to rights and benefits during Furlough leave, working from home, re-opening a work place safely, contractual changes to employment terms, redundancies, layoffs or any other matters, the employment team at Copleys can advise you. We act for both employers and employees so please get in touch if you need our help.
During the pandemic, although our offices are closed to members of the public in accordance with government guidance, we are able to provide Skype and telephone consultations.
What is the service we offer?
There is a great deal of legislation, both new and old concerning employment law. Many employers may be unaware of how far employment rights now extend.
Copleys's experienced Employment Team can offer advice and planning to pre-empt any legal problems and can also help you resolve issues as soon as they arise.
At Copleys we can advise you about a range of matters including:
- Policies and procedures which can help you maintain and improve your workforce
- Unfair dismissal claims and how to avoid them
- Handling the claim if it has already arisen
- Redundancy procedures (if applicable)
- Drafting of Employment Terms & Conditions
Who is it for?
The service is for all employers, whether managing small businesses with a just a few employees or large companies with many hundreds of staff. There may be any number of employee related issues that you wish to discuss with us and we are happy to help you in any way that we can.
How the service works
Following our first meeting, we will be able to plan the right course of action for your situation.
We will draft all the documentation that you will need (and which the law says you must have) to create the most stable work/employee relations environment possible, including policies in respect of sex, race and disability legislation.
The Copleys Employment Team can also provide the training support and advice that you require to ensure that problems are avoided.
How much will it cost?
We will discuss costs with you at the very outset of your case, as each situation is different. We will assess your situation and discuss how to proceed, and you will be kept informed of all likely costs at each stage.
