Ad Hoc Services

Sometimes, you just need employment law advice on an ad-hoc basis - no contract but the knowledge that you can still get a bespoke, reliable, expert service whenever it’s needed.

If this sounds like what you need, take a look at our options for ad-hoc services below:

Redundancy

Redundancy should always be used as a last resort, but sometimes it’s a necessary step in reducing overheads. CoLaw can ensure your redundancy procedures are carried out legally and fairly.

Business Acquisitions

Acquiring or selling a business usually falls under the Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment Regulations (TUPE). This is a complicated set of laws, so advice and assistance from CoLaw could prove crucial in being compliant.

Employment Tribunal Support

Regardless of how compliant your business is, employees can take you to a tribunal if they feel they’ve been mistreated. Sound legal advice and support is a must in these scenarios.

Contracts of Employment

The contract forms the vital basis of all employee/employer relationships.  The importance of these contracts are often overlooked . Getting it right should be your number one priority.

Procedures

Changes in legislation make it absolutely vital that you follow the correct procedures in disciplinary or capability and grievance matters. To keep on the right side of the law, let CoLaw guide you through proceedings.

Dismissals

Dismissal, no matter how fair or warranted, can be distressing for both employee and employer. Emotions can run high, and due diligence can be overlooked. CoLaw will take the emotion out of the situation, and ensure a fair and honest dismissal.
