The Spearing Waite philosophy of “prevention is better than cure” remains relevant to redundancy and restructuring exercises. We strongly endorse pre-planning and risk assessment and find that this approach produces not only the best outcome but also greatly reduces the risk of disputes or tribunal claims arising, whether in relation to small scale or individual redundancies or collective consultation involving employee representatives or trade unions.
We produce tailored employment contracts or where suitable, amend existing employment contracts, to ensure our clients are both compliant with their legal obligations and in the best possible position to avoid disputes later down the line.
Spearing Waite's employment law specialists will take time to understand your business, its culture, and your objectives before advising on and producing a handbook that will become an indispensible tool in the day-to-day running of your organisation.
The Spearing Waite HR Retainer Service gives businesses expert legal and support to help them deal with employment law and HR issues as and when they arise. The HR Retainer gives clients confidence that we are on hand to help with all their people-related queries, from advertising and recruitment through to dismissals and post-termination disputes.
Dismissals need to be implemented in accordance with the requirements of employment legislation. Spearing Waite's employment law experts provide advice and assistance that is compliant with the employment law framework, but which prioritises our clients’ interests, maximises their flexibility and eliminates the risk of any costly mistakes.
The Equality Act 2010 brought all of the existing employment legislation together into one place, and strengthened the law of unfair and unlawful treatment in the workplace. Spearing Waite's experienced employment lawyers provide proactive and supportive advice to help businesses comply with the legislation, and manage sensitive issues when they arise.
TUPE protects employees' terms and conditions when a business is transferred from one owner to another. This can be in a conventional business sale as a going concern, the transfer of part of a business, or in a service provision change situation. Spearing Waite's employment lawyers provide expert advice on the employment law implications of business sales and purchases.
