Workplace Issues & Disputes

We know workplace grievances and employment disputes can be extremely disruptive for an organisation, becoming a major distraction for employers and employees alike. We understand the value of dealing with grievances and settling disputes in a timely manner to resolve them before they become employment tribunal claims. The earlier you seek advice, often the better the outcome.

We can help in a variety of ways, including:

  • Undertaking independent disciplinary and grievance investigations
  • Advising on disciplinary, grievance and appeals procedures
  • Managing and responding to subject access requests by employees
  • Guiding you through the ‘protected conversation’ process; and
  • Drafting Settlement Agreements

If an issue develops into an employment tribunal claim, we will help you deal with it while causing minimal disruption to your organisation. We have extensive experience in dealing with unfair dismissal and breach of contract claims and also with more complex litigation including discrimination, whistleblowing and TUPE. We are also one of the UK’s leading employment specialists in the field of equal pay claims having represented employers in many sectors in defence of multiple claims brought by trade unions and the workforce alike.

We can help you with all aspects of employment tribunal work, including drafting responses to tribunal claims, managing litigation strategy, preparing witnesses, dealing with ACAS, negotiating settlements and representation at tribunal.
