Our labour law services
The specialist labour lawyers at Oracle have many years’ experience advising organisations in a wide range of sectors (including healthcare, fashion, leisure, financial services, and IT) in both the private and public sector.
Services we offer for employers include:
We understand that resolution of an employment issue is not just about the financial cost of defending a single claim. Reputational implications and ensuring appropriate measures are put in place to best equip an organisation going forward can often be at least as important to many employers.
Every business is different and therefore the policies and procedures differ. Your company needs to consider the recruitment policy as well as the equal opportunities policy.
Further, you need to consider the Health and Safety of your workforce, disciplinary and grievance procedures. Depending on the type of business, you may wish to consider flexible working, training and development, social media and email policies.
Our experts can advise you on what policies are required and should be implemented.
If you have dismissed someone and they have claimed that it is unfair dismissal, then you should contact your HR team and our employment experts. You should keep and collect all the evidence surrounding the dismissal. Keep detailed notes and ensure that you have followed the company’s disciplinary procedure. There are time limits to any claim brought against you.
