Employment Laywers

Clear and practical employment law advice

Employment law is a complex area and ever changing. Specialist employment advice for businesses is a necessity from time to time.

Helping individuals or large and small companies

Fortune Law act for individuals or large and small companies on a wide range of employment issues providing clear and practical employment law advice. This includes:

  • Employment contracts for both junior and senior employees either on a full time or part time basis
  • Audits of existing employment contracts and policies
  • Consultancy agreements and commission schedules
  • Staff handbook and disciplinary and grievance procedures
  • Termination of employment including grievance and disciplinary hearings
  • Assistance and documentation of TUPE transfers on asset sales
  • Redundancy situations whether on an individual or wider scale basis
  • Negotiation of settlement agreements and unfair dismissal situations

 

How Fortune Law can help

Claims by or against employees are particularly demanding for businesses in terms of cost, time and energy. Litigation of any sort is best avoided and preparation is often the key to achieve this.

At Fortune Law, we regularly advise on employment tribunal claims and breaches by employees of restrictive covenants in their employment contracts.  We are acutely aware of the types of problems that lead to excessive costs being unnecessarily spent by both parties on such matters.

To prevent tribunal claims for unfair or wrongful dismissal, discrimination or another of a raft of other potential claims, it is important to ensure your employment contracts and staff handbooks are up to date and protect your interests and concerns, which may of course have changed since you last updated your precedents.

Taking legal advice at an early stage is also essential.

Senior employee exits: One key area which is often litigated or negotiated can arise on the exit of a senior employee where the employment contract contains post-termination restrictions. You will want to ensure that your business is protected as far as possible and at whatever cost.

The case of Safetynet Security Ltd v Coppage and another [2012] EWHC B11 (Mercantile) shows how careful consideration of your interests and precise drafting of restrictive covenants at the time of entering into the contract can achieve this for you.
