Employment Law

In recent times an individual’s employment status has become more important than ever, often raising questions from employers and employees alike.

Watsons Solicitors has over 25 years’ experience in advising both employers and employees in respect of Employment matters.

In explaining what can be a very complicated area of law, we ensure that any advice is jargon free and set out in simple terms.

As a local firm our lower overheads mean that we can offer more competitive rates than our city counterparts with the added benefit of being on your doorstep.

We are able to provide a quotation to you upon receipt of the details so that you know exactly how much the advice and assistance will cost with no hidden charges.

Any transaction is overseen by a Partner in Watsons to ensure that you get the best possible service from the beginning to the end of the transaction.

We can provide the following assistance:-

  • Advice to employers in respect of drafting Directors and Senior employees’ Service Agreements and employee Contracts, Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures, Settlement (Compromise) Agreements and representation at Employment Tribunals.
  • Advice to employees in respect of their employment rights, interpretation of their Contract of Employment, Grievance Procedures and Disciplinary Procedures.
  • We have many years experience in negotiating compensation for employees who have been unfairly dismissed, advising them on the terms and effect of their Compromise Agreements and, where it has not been possible to negotiate settlement, providing representation at Employment Tribunals.
  • Employees’ legal fees in addition to being paid for on a private funding basis can sometimes be covered by their Legal Expense Insurer, or their Trade Union. We can therefore work on a Conditional Fee Agreement basis, (“No Win No Fee”), Legal Expense Insurance or on a privately funded basis. Fixed fees are available in some circumsatnces.
