Handling the end of an employment relationship is not always easy, especially if relations have broken down and emotions are high. Getting it wrong can lead to costly and time-consuming litigation, as well as potential damage to reputation and staff morale.

Our specialist employment lawyers can provide practical support and guidance through any dismissal and investigation procedures in a way that ensures they are handled fairly and reasonably, reducing the risk of allegations of unfair dismissal arising. Our expertise includes the management of:

  • Poor performance
  • Absence dismissals
  • Redundancy exercises
  • Disciplinary procedures, including investigations
  • TUPE transfers
  • Changes to terms and conditions, including dismissal and re-engagement (‘fire and rehire’)
  • Collective consultation procedure

For further information on our investigations services, please see our brochure

Recent work highlights:

  • Advising a UK national charity for children with development disabilities, including providing specialist education services  on employment tribunal claims filed by multiple employees covering claims of race, sex and disability discrimination, failure to make reasonable adjustments and constructive unfair dismissal.  One claim for constructive unfair dismissal and discrimination was withdrawn by the employee without settlement following our submission of a robust defence.
