Devon Law provide businesses and individuals with practical advice on a full range of employment law issues.
How can we help?
Employment dispute resolution, including disciplinary and grievance procedures.
Workplace bullying and harassment – Are you working in an environment where unwanted touching or offensive jokes and comments are seen as normal? Is a boss or colleague making unwanted sexual advances? Are you being humiliated in front of colleagues? You deserve to work in an environment free of harassment and bullying. The law insists that employers hear any complaints and take the right steps to stop the harassment. If they don’t then we can deal with the situation.
Discrimination – Employers are prohibited from discriminating unfairly against you when making decisions about hiring, promoting, demoting, firing, training, providing benefits and more. For example, you cannot be harassed in relation to your sex or gender, race or nationality, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age. There’s a number of legal options available if you act quickly. We can review your situation and advise if you can make a claim or if you have a claim raised against you.
Negotiation and drafting of employment contracts and service agreements.
Preparation and implementation of staff handbooks and policies.
Managing restructuring, reorganization and redundancies.
Managing dismissals and negotiating exit packages.
Settlement agreements. If you need or have been offered a settlement or compromise agreement then we can make sure that it protects your rights.
Post termination matters, including the enforcement of restrictive covenants.
Transfer of undertakings – if you’re selling your business or the business you work for has been sold or merged, your employment contract could be protected under TUPE legislation.
