Employment Law Advice For Employers
At Sampson Coward, we aim to provide businesses with the benefit of our expertise and experience to help resolve employment problems in a prompt, efficient and cost effective manner.
We regularly advise upon a wide range of employment law topics including:
- Unfair Dismissal
- Discrimination (including sex discrimination advice, disability, age, race and religious beliefs, pregnancy and sexual orientation)
- Contracts of Employment
- Settlement Agreements
- Business transfers
- Employment Tribunal Claims
We offer specialist advice about employment related issues, and provide practical assistance and guidance to businesses that employ both large and small work forces.
We are well versed in the intricacies of employment contracts and provide a full Contract of Employment and policy handbook service. We can also provide practical employment law training for managers, either on site or at a suitable venue.
We assist businesses in minimising the risks arising from changing terms of employment, reorganisations, and potential redundancies. We have a proven track record of success in defending Employment Tribunal claims.
Should an employment tribunal claim be made against your business, we will be able to conduct your defence of the claim. Whilst we provide an in-house advocacy service we also work closely with barristers to ensure that, whether the claim is resolved through an out of court settlement or at an employment tribunal hearing, you are given the best opportunity to achieve a satisfactory and cost effective outcome.
Our Salisbury employment law team is headed by David Coward, a solicitor with over 25 years of experience in this area of the law. He regularly conducts cases in employment tribunals and has appeared in the Employment Appeal Tribunal.
