How flexible is your business?



Ending an employment relationship doesn’t have to be difficult, our legal team can advise on best practice.

We appreciate that terminating an employment relationship is often not an easy task. But however strong and compelling your reason for termination may be, it is vitally important that you also follow a fair process.  Further, what may be a fair process in a misconduct dismissal, for example, may not be appropriate in other circumstances (e.g. poor-performance). It is also important that you avoid the risk of inadvertent discrimination when dismissing someone.

Our expert team of Solicitors can advise on all aspects involved in bringing an employment relationship to an end, whether because of misconduct, restructuring, redundancy, poor performance, ill-health or ‘some other substantial reason’.  We can also help you negotiate severance packages and settlement agreements.  And if you do find yourself facing a claim, we can help you defend employment tribunal proceedings.

Whatever issues you may face when terminating employment, our employment law solicitors are here to provide support and practical, pragmatic advice.
