Our experienced team of employment solicitors provides advice and support to social business on all aspects of employment disputes.
Employment law is one of the most complex areas of law, which is why employment disputes can and do arise. We work in partnership with co-operatives, mutuals, social enterprises, community organisations and commercial businesses to help them manage, resolve and safeguard themselves against employment disputes.
Our specialist employment team has many years of experience of working on a range of employment disputes, from high-value discrimination cases to unfair dismissal claims through to negotiating settlement agreements, handling redundancies and general employment law advice.
When supporting our social business clients there are two main areas of employment law we cover; resolving employee relations problems and defending employment claims.
Our employment-disputes service
At Anthony Collins Solicitors we understand that employment tribunal claims can be stressful, expensive and lengthy. We work in partnership with you to ensure that claims are handled and resolved in the most efficient and effective manner, by qualified solicitors.
Employee-relation problems are one of the most common employment disputes that can arise and can involve one or two key individuals to the whole workforce. We use our extensive experience and knowledge to work with you to identify legal issues, devise a strategy for defending employment claims and work towards reaching a workable outcome.
The outcome is dependent on the type of case, but could include arranging a settlement agreement, or a robust disciplinary or grievance process. In cases where trade unions are involved and relationships are strained we have used a variety of strategies to help reach agreement or, where appropriate, to bypass the unions.
We will work in partnership with you to ensure you are using your in-house resources to complete some of the processes, such as witness statements, and can provide training if required to help you reduce the cost of defending a claim.
If you are unsuccessful in defending employment claims, a tribunal claim may have a negative impact on your organisation's reputation and they may be ordered to pay compensation to the employee or the employee could seek reinstatement.
Our experienced employment-law solicitors will work with you, as a co-operative or mutual, to guide you through each stage of the tribunal process, from the initial response to a tribunal claim, and support with preparing witness statements and strategic advice on handling the tribunal. We will help you to safeguard against the threat of future employment disputes by identifying measures you could be taking to minimise the risk.
