Our Employment Group provides practical, professional advice covering all the employment realities of a business or organisation.
RK’s Employment Group helps clients protect their businesses and pave the way for successful growth. We provide advice to corporate clients in a vast array of sectors including private equity, insurance, real estate and financial services and are used to providing employment advice within the context of highly regulated industries.
Our practical, professional advice covers all the employment realities of a business or organisation, ranging from non-contentious employment advice on ensuring compliance with relevant legislation and regulatory requirements, to contentious assistance, including litigation around restrictive covenants, claims in the employment tribunal or the civil courts. Our prompt advice aims to limit costs and reduce risk at every stage.
We have significant experience in all areas of employment advice including recruitment of employees, management of issues during employment such as grievance or disciplinary matters, absence, dismissal of employees, equality and diversity issues covering all areas prohibited by law in the UK, such as sex, race, disability, age and gender discrimination together with equal pay issues, whistleblowing, data protection issues (and in particular subject access rights) for employees, directors’ service contracts and obligations, compliance with Working Time Regulations, consultancy arrangements, advice on Trade Union recognition and derecognition issues, drafting and updating contracts of employment and staff handbooks. Our Employment Group often assists with TUPE advice, business reorganisation and redundancy plans as well as providing pragmatic solutions on the need to terminate employment with as little cost and risk as possible.
We regularly undertake training work for our clients, viewing it as part of our ongoing commitment to their business success.
