Our Employment team provide expert legal advice to businesses considering restructuring their company.
Seeking advice from the outset can limit any potential claims against an employer, and ensure that the restructuring process is conducted in a fair and lawful manner. Our employment solicitors are able to advise on a broad range of employment law-related matters including:
- Contract advice on changing or reviewing employee terms and conditions, including advice on the employment status of staff and consultants
- Conducting a fair and effective redundancy process
- Redeployment and secondment of staff
- Company health checks
- Advising through disciplinary and grievance procedures
- Dealing with transactions that involve TUPE and its implications
It is vital that employers are clear and transparent throughout the process, defining new roles and their objectives to reduce the needless uncertainty and related stress that is likely to occur in the workplace. Employers may also consider providing relevant training and policy documents to prepare managers for the new structure and strategies.
We understand that each company is different as are their subsequent needs and as such, offer individual tailored advice. Our employment solicitors deliver commercially sound and pragmatic advice taking into consideration the employment related difficulties and developing pitfalls that companies may face in these uncertain times. We can guide clients through this difficult process and assist them to consolidate their company’s new structure and policies.
Seeking legal advice at your earliest opportunity will put your organisation in the best position to minimise risk and ensure all legal obligations are complied with, saving costs in the long run.
