Employment Law

“They were able to see the situation from both the employer and employee side which really helped”

HSBS Employment Law Solicitors

“My situation at work had started to impact my personal life at home … I knew at that point I needed to speak to a specialist in order to find a resolution”

Whether you are an employer or employee, employment law is a major area. When faced with an employment dispute, this can have profound impact on your personal life and/or business. For employees, an increasing amount of time is spent at work so the stress of such situations can have negative, emotional and financial implications at both work and home. For employers, these issues risk spreading throughout the company resulting in reduced worker productivity and distractions from key areas which can ultimately impact the overall success of the business.

Employment law is a vast, highly complex and fast moving area of law. Legislation and regulations are constantly appearing and evolving in an attempt to keep up with modern day working demands and practices. This often leads to costly disputes and penalties if these laws are ignored, therefore compliance is of paramount importance and seeking legal advice from a specialist is critical.

At HSBS Law, we are able to act for both employers and employees, providing us with an extensive and well-rounded knowledge on all areas of employment law. When working with our clients, we possess an ability to assess a situation from ‘both sides’ which allow us to put forward a stronger case. Timing is a key factor in employment law as most claims must be made within three months, so we encourage you to contact us immediately.
