Employment Solicitors in Tameside

Complying with UK employment law can present a challenge to employers, especially when there are regular updates to these laws to stay on top of. Where employers fail to meet their obligations, employees may need to take action to protect their rights. Both employers and employees can, therefore, benefit from expert legal guidance on occasion.

Our employment solicitors in Ashton-Under-Lyne, Tameside, work with both employers and employees. This allows us to see all sorts of employment issues from both perspectives, meaning we can usually find solutions that balance the needs of businesses with the rights of employees. As a result, we can minimise the potential for conflict and allow any disputes to be resolved faster and more satisfactorily.

We handle both non-contentious issues, such as creating and reviewing contracts of employment, HR policies and other everyday issues, as well as contentious matters, such as dismissals, redundancies and all types of employment claims. We have a strong focus on alternative dispute resolution, meaning we can usually sort out most employment disputes without the need for an Employment Tribunal.

Whether you are an employer or employee, we can provide the clear, effective legal advice and representation you need to ensure your interests are protected.
