Employment law

Employment law is a constantly evolving area of law and the ever-increasing complexity of the legislation and regulations with which an employer must comply can be daunting. But with employment tribunals able to award as much as £77,600 in unfair dismissal cases, and an unlimited amount in cases of discrimination, failure to observe correct employment law procedures or to have adequate employment documentation in place can be devastating for a business.

Woodfords Solicitors provide advice on all areas of employment law to many businesses throughout London (and particularly in Fulham, Chelsea, Putney and Hammersmith).

Too often, we are consulted as a matter of last resort when it is too late to affect the outcome of a case, because correct procedures have not been followed at an earlier stage. To encourage our business clients to address any employment issue at the earliest opportunity we offer a fixed fee employment support service which includes:

  • advice from our employment law team on any employment matter
  • a review of your employment documentation and recommendations for improvement
  • provision of bespoke resources, including:
    • employment contracts
    • policies, procedures and staff handbooks
    • letters to employees
  • discounts for employees on personal legal services
