Employment

Capital’s lawyers have a strong reputation for dealing with all types of employment law and have been involved in some of the most complex employment law transactions in the UK in recent times. We regularly advise private and publicly quoted institutions, as well as public authorities. As founding members of Consulegis – the international network of lawyers, we work closely with employment lawyers in other jurisdictions.

Our close links with Capital People Consultants puts us in a unique position. In collaboration with highly qualified and experienced HR, OD, and Safety consultants, we can look after all of your people management needs, offering an integrated service of expert legal advice, with an extensive range of consultancy and training.

We regularly run sell-out breakfast briefings and training sessions in Cardiff and London. To see our full list of events, please click here.

Our services include:

  • employment contracts

  • When one business is taken over by another, the law protects employees from being dismissed. The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations ensures the new employer complies with certain guarantees.

    Our team regularly guides employers through these procedures and advises employees on their rights.


     

  • We have experience in all areas of discrimination, including:

    • sex
    • race
    • disability
    • sexual orientation
    • age
    • religion or belief.

     

  • Terminating the employment of senior level officers is rarely straightforward. We not only advise businesses on the law and commerciality, but also advise senior officers on their rights and termination packages.


     

  • We:

    • draft and review policies and procedures
    • advise employers on the best course of action
    • act as independent investigators in a disciplinary or grievance matter.

     

  • We advise on:

    • changing employee terms and conditions
    • new company structures
    • redundancies
    • consultation and announcements
    • process and risk management.

     

  • Sometimes employers terminate an employee’s employment without fully understanding

    the implications. We can guide you through the right procedures and help reduce the risk of a successful tribunal claim. We can help minimise the repercussions of a termination, and reduce your liability to compensate the employee. We also advise individuals who may have been unfairly dismissed. Our lawyers are experienced advocates, representing clients at employment tribunal hearings if necessary.


     

  • Capital Law provides Employment Tribunal (ET) services for several large organisations, many of whom have existing relationships with City law firms.

    We complement rather than disrupt these existing relationships, if that’s your preference, by offering a distinct service in an area where many law firms choose not to specialise.

    Benefits of using Capital Law’s specialist Employment Tribunal services include:

    • Management – our efficiency means we do not waste your time, nor waste the time of the witnesses
    • Continuity – the team conducts all its own advocacy, so the case is managed by the same person from start to finish
    • Cost effective – lawyers with London backgrounds charging regional rates as work is done from the Cardiff office
    • 100% success rate in the team
    • The perspective of a former Employment Tribunal judge, bringing invaluable insight to the process
