Employment Solicitors in Oldham

The UK has strict employment laws which are regularly changed and updated. This presents a challenge for employers, who need to stay on top of the latest requirements, but it’s also an unfortunate fact that employers do not always meet their legal obligations, meaning employees often need to take action to enforce their rights.

Getting the right legal advice is essential to help employers avoid the risk of legal disputes with their employees, as well as to swiftly find a positive way forward where an issue has arisen.

Our employment solicitors in Oldham act for both employers and employees, giving us a valuable insight into both perspectives. This means we can find the right legal options to protect both parties interests, allowing most issues to be resolved amicably, saving you time, money and avoiding unnecessary conflict.

We understand the need to balance business interests with the rights of employees. Having seen these matters from both sides of the table many times, we know how get the right legal framework in place to minimise the likelihood of any disputes or regulatory issues.

Of course, disputes cannot always be avoided, and our employment lawyers have extensive experience representing both employers and employees at Employment Tribunals. However, in most cases we are able to resolve employment disputes outside of a tribunal with settlement agreements and other mutually beneficial solutions.

Whether you need help creating or reviewing contacts of employment, are looking for guidance through issues such as dismissals and redundancy, or are seeking representation for resolving an employment dispute, we have the expertise you need.
