Employment Law

Employment law comprises the rules and regulations governing the relationship between employers and their employees. It covers a wide range of topics, including hiring, managing, and terminating employees, ensuring fair treatment, and compliance with employment laws and regulations.

Our Panel

Legal Assist gives you access to a panel of Employment Law solicitor firms which can carefully navigate you through the complex and ever-changing landscape of employment law. They can provide invaluable assistance by drafting and reviewing contracts, developing workplace policies, ensuring regulatory compliance, managing employee relations, handling terminations and redundancies, defending against claims, and advising on employee benefits and health and safety.

Please note: We are a claims management company authorised and regulated by the financial conduct authority in respect of claims management activities, however this page is for non-regulated activities.

You do not need to use a claims management company for this matter. You do not need to use our panel solicitors either. You have the right to proceed with a solicitor’s firm or company of your own choice.

Solicitor’s Fees

Fees vary from law firm to law firm. Some may charge you on hourly rates, fixed fees, or staged payment options. We do not deal with this aspect so if the price quoted by one of our panel members is too high or doesn’t seem competitive, you do not have to go with that law firm. It doesn’t cost you anything to have a conversation with them to see if they are the right fit for you and your circumstances. We do not charge you a fee for introducing you to any of our panel members and the initial telephone consultation with the solicitor’s firm is free of charge.

Legal Assist does not offer legal advice of any kind. Our panel solicitors may be able to offer their services to you however you are under no obligation to utilise their services even after your initial consultation with them. Any solicitors firm we recommend is an independent firm from whom you will receive impartial professional legal advice from. We are paid a recommendation fee for successful introductions however this has no impact on the level of service you would receive with them or the fees that you would be charged by that panel member. You are also free to seek legal advice through a solicitor’s firm or legal advisor of your own choice or pursue this matter yourself for free.
