- Unfair and wrongful dismissal

- Parental rights

- Injunctive relief
- Trade union law and industrial relations
- European Community Law
- Employment-related human rights
Further, we can also review and advise on businesses' employment practices and procedures and assist in drafting contracts and manuals. We are able to offer meetings and conferences at either our Canterbury or Maidstone offices, or by telephone where appropriate. Our Employment Law Barristers are also available to travel nationwide to advise or represent at Tribunals or formal employment related meetings.
Our Employment Law team has extensive experience of providing expert advice on compromise agreements of all levels of complexity. Normally your employers' contribution is enough to cover any legal fees, and if the employer's offer of settlement is not at the right level, we will negotiate on your behalf to obtain a better deal, all for one fixed price.
Also Barristers regularly provide in-house Employment Law training seminars to businesses and individuals throughout the South East.
