Experienced Employment Solicitors in Gateshead and Washington
Our employment specialists can offer expert, pragmatic, commercial advice on your employment issues. We act for both employers and employees, offering understanding and insight.
We can advise and draft all documents required for business operations and in the workplace including contracts, policies, service contracts, shareholder and partnership agreements and settlements agreements. Appropriate, well drafted documents help to avoid workplace disputes.
In the event of dispute, we are able to assist in trying to seek a satisfactory resolution, this can hopefully be achieved so that employer / employee relations can be maintained – this requires tactical nous, sensitivity and commercial awareness.
In the event that a dispute cannot be resolved whilst maintaining relations, ideally, we still look to resolve without the need for Court or Tribunal proceedings. However, if proceedings are required, we robustly represent our clients.
It is important to note that there are very strict time limits to bringing or responding to a claim in the Employment Tribunal (and time limits apply to other proceedings also). Therefore, we recommend taking advice at the earliest opportunity.
