Sally has a wide range of experience in all aspects of employment law in Harrogate. She regularly guides clients through disciplinary and grievance issues, redundancy and re-structure processes and handles a wide range of Employment Tribunal claims. On the non-contentious side, Sally drafts contractual and policy documentation and advises on their implementation. She also regularly presents seminars to clients and their line managers on a variety of practical topics and changes to employment law.
Matters Sally advises upon include the following:
It is a very prudent investment. Making sure your staff at operational level get it right will prevent many problems ever arising. It will also build the best defence to any which are unavoidable.
I am tempted to say not but I only see when things have gone wrong and an employment relationship has soured! Getting key documents and training in place will help avoid this. I do think that employers are inundated by more and more regulation which is making running a business increasingly difficult.
To keep our clients up to date with the fast changing employment legislation. For several years now, the government has brought in very significant changes in April and October each year. We hold our seminars in advance of the changes coming into force so that we can prepare our clients for them.
I don’t think so. We will soon have an increase in qualifying period for unfair dismissal, fees for the issue of Employment Tribunal claims and significant changes to pensions. However, I hope that the trend might change so that the legislation becomes slightly less onerous on employers.
We give employers clear, solid advice and practical solutions. We understand our clients’ businesses which ensures we give the best advice. Employers also value our prompt service and being guided through tricky situations.
Winning Employment Tribunal claims! It’s a great feeling when you get to see justice being done, all the hard work pays off.
Yes! These documents set out the guidelines and expectations of the employer and are such a useful tool in a variety of situations. For example, if a sex discrimination claim is brought against you the first thing a Tribunal will ask is whether there is an Equal Opportunities Policy.
