Whether you’re an employee or employer, the law is complicated. Legislation governing dismissal, discrimination, settlement agreements, redundancy, tribunals and employment contracts constitute a legal minefield for people on both sides of the employer / employee relationship.
Disruption at work can be distressing, both financially and emotionally.
At TLS Solicitors, we have a dedicated and experienced team that realises this and is ready to help.
Our employment department has long been trusted to deliver practical advice on a huge range of employment related matters. We act for a broad range of commercial clients, including UK-based and international companies.
A claim to an employment tribunal begins when the relevant tribunal office receives a claim form, known as ET/1.
Which tribunal office deals with the claim will depend on where the claimant worked.
Once the claim form, ET/1 is lodged, the respondent (usually the employer) has 28 days to lodge a response form, ET/3, presenting its Grounds of Resistance.
At TLS Solicitors we try to keep things simple.
Here we provide a brief definition of what a settlement agreement is and what we can do for both employers and employees when requiring legal representation.
The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment), Regulations 2006 (TUPE) protect employees when a contract of employment transfers from one organisation to another.
Mergers and acquisitions, the sale of a business or the transfer of a major contract between providers are examples of where TUPE would apply.
