Employment and Employment Law

Contact Us

If you’re looking for a solicitor for employment law, then Bowcock & Pursaill can help. We regularly work with employees to help settle a variety of employment law matters.

As employment solicitors in Staffordshire, our employment team has extensive experience and expertise in contracts, tribunals, claims, policies and procedures. Our employment law solicitors offer a non-judgmental service irrespective of the nature of the employment and discuss available options with their clients before deciding upon a course of action.

Employment law is complex and has to respond to changes in employment practices which require clear and commercial advice to deal with any issues. We are proud to offer practical and current employment law advice for employees looking for support in sensitive matters.

It’s worth noting that the time limits for many employment law claims are short, so it’s important you seek advice on any issues of concern as soon as possible.

Employment law is vast and spans across a wide range of areas regarding your employment and your relationship with your employer.

If you need support on a settlement agreement, we are highly experienced in getting the best possible outcome for our clients. A settlement is often used to resolve an ongoing dispute in the workplace.

As an employee, if you’re going through a disciplinary and grievance procedure, it can be very stressful. We can advise and support you through that process to ensure you’re fairly treated.

If you believe you’re the victim of unfair dismissal, you have a very limited time window to lodge a complaint with an Employment Tribunal, three months to be exact. It can be a very complex process and dependant on the circumstances you have to have two years’ service to be entitled to lodge a complaint. We can advise you throughout the claim and act on your behalf with paperwork, witnesses, presenting to the Employment judge and more. We can alternatively act on your behalf to negotiate a settlement.

Redundancy is also a common matter which requires employment law legal advice. It can be a distressing experience meaning many clients are often taken advantage of. We can calculate your fair redundancy payment, ensure you were selected in a fair way and the correct procedures were followed.

We provide assistance to employees for the following:

  • Compromise agreements when terms have been agreed for an employee to leave
  • Drafting contracts of employment
  • Drafting Director’s service contracts and advising on restrictive covenants
  • Employment disputes
  • Equal pay issues
  • Executive severance
  • Preparation for and advocacy at an Employment Tribunal
  • Redundancy
  • Restructuring exercises
  • TUPE related matters

Offices open 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday
