Employment Law For Employers

If you are an employer, you will likely require an employment law solicitor with the expertise required to navigate the ever-changing and complex employment legislation. The team at McCartan Turkington Breen have advised businesses of all sizes, ranging from one employee to several thousand. If you require expert legal advice on employment matters that impact employers, contact us for a complimentary no commitment initial consultation.

Legal services for employers in Northern Ireland

McCartan Turkington Breen can help you strengthen the legal component of the relationship you have with the workforce that drives your business forward. Employees in Northern Ireland and Great Britain are protected by evolving and complicated legislation that you, as an employer, must adhere to. The smallest oversight could land you in hot water, not to mention reputational damage if a disgruntled employee is particularly vocal on social media. The employment law and compliance team at McCartan Turkingon Breen can help you develop the right policies to avoid potential costly and time-consuming fallout later.

Our dedicated team are available to advise you on:

  • Drafting and enforcing contracts of employment, including restrictive covenants.
  • Establishing recruitment, safety, grievance and disciplinary procedures.
  • Help you remain compliant with legislation such as The Employment Rights (NI) Order 1996
  • Dismissals, redundancies and employment tribunal cases.

We recognise the importance to employers of having robust practices and procedures in place to ensure that the rights of their employees are respected without recourse to litigation or other forms of dispute resolution. However, there will be times when disputes are inevitable and our solicitors are experienced in offering constructive, pragmatic and cost effective advice in order to ensure that such disputes are resolved with the minimal of fuss and expense.
