We are committed to supporting your business with practical, money and time saving guidance.
Business Sales & Purchases
Are you involved in a business sale or business purchase? Or are you taking over a contract, or outsourcing part of your business? If so, handling employees under TUPE will always be an issue. With our many years of experience we can help you get the people aspects of the transaction right, and help negotiate the best possible deal.
You can expect a fresh approach from Springhouse. Employment law is our sole focus and we can help you achieve the best possible deal.
Contracts, Policies and Benefits
We cost-effectively draw up all work-related documentation, including employment contracts, staff handbooks, policies and procedures, shareholders' and partnership agreements. These will be tailored to your particular business, not 'off the shelf', giving you the best possible protection.
Discrimination claims are a particular concern to employers. There is no limit on compensation, and the bad publicity associated with allegations can be very damaging. Parental rights can also be very complicated. We have extensive experience, and can help.
We understand that you will want to be able to pick up the phone to an experienced advisor either for a sense check or for everyday employment law support. We can also provide training, which will reduce the risk of problems down the line.
If you need to recruit from outside the UK we can provide swift assistance and expert guidance to get people working for you as soon as possible.
Issues with Staff
Whatever issues you are having with your staff, we will help you achieve the right outcome for your business.
We handle legal disputes from beginning to end, without the need to involve barristers in Tribunals. We will try to resolve complaints amicably, but will fight your corner, and have an excellent track record. We also have extensive trade union and industrial action experience.
New ACAS rules put a heavy emphasis on workplace mediation as a way of dealing with workplace disputes and potential Employment Tribunal claims.
Redundancies and Restructures
Managing change within a business can be difficult and risky, particularly when it comes to making redundancies and changing jobs and benefits. We help businesses achieve their aims, and avoid Employment Tribunal claims.
Constructive dismissal and unfair dismissal complaints are the most common in the Employment Tribunals. We have the inside track, and can help you avoid dismissals, or make them with the minimum of risk.
