Employment services

Since the introduction of the Employment Rights Act the law governing the duties and responsibilities of employers and rights of employees has never been more complex. With an uncertain economy and increased levels of stress at work we can help you comply with the law, and avoid claims from employees in dealing with employment related matters.

Elizabeth Whitehead is a specialist in employment law, and can assist with anything from drafting terms and conditions of employment to advising on redundancy agreements. Whatever you need to do, we can advise you on how to deal with your problem in a considerate, economic and legal manner.


We understand that relationships between employer and employee can break down for a variety of reasons, and we can assist in advising in relation to a host of claims including:



Whilst we prefer to negotiate mutually acceptable outcomes between disputing parties to avoid the expense of a court case, we can also help you take a matter to court.


If you would like to discuss a situation with us then please contact Elizabeth either via phone on 01473 244416 or via email at elizabeth.whitehead@rosscoates.co.uk
