Employment Law Advice
At DPH Legal our solicitors specialise in employment law and only employment law. We believe that when individuals or businesses seek employment law advice it is essential that they speak to a specialist to ensure they receive the best quality service. Employment law is perhaps the most fast moving area of the law and for that reason it is essential to take expert advice regardless of the nature of the workplace dispute.
Employment Law in England and Wales can involve countless complex contentious and non-contentious issues which is why professional advice is essential. It has developed over the years as a hybrid of common law principles, domestic statute law, and European Union law, the combination of which can often prove difficult to unpick. Employment Law is also renowned for its fast pace of change, thus requiring practitioners to be well-versed in the current state of affairs.
Non-contentious advice can include advice on contracts of employment, TUPE transfers, maternity and paternity leave, flexible working and workplace policy documents, all of which employers will be familiar with. By contrast, some of the more common contentious issues include unfair dismissal (including constructive unfair dismissal), discrimination, redundancy disputes, addressing workplace grievance, unlawful deductions from wages, and breach of contract. Individual and business clients require advice on a wide range of issues from low level grievance disputes to high value Employment Tribunal or High Court litigation.
At DPH Legal we have extensive experience of providing advice and representation in all areas of employment law. We provide this advice on a daily basis both to individuals and businesses and therefore have experience of advising on both sides of the equation.
