Covering Oxford, High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Banbury, Witney and more.
Welcome to the Oxford Employment Law Solicitors website. We practice predominantly in employment law and aim to provide comprehensive and cost effective advice to employers and employees in all sectors of employment law, from recruitment to redundancy, from drafting and negotiating an employment contract to an employment tribunal, from negotiating compromise agreements to all areas of discrimination. We are happy to discuss any employment law issue you have in a no-obligation phone call, or alternatively, you can complete an email enquiry by using our online form on our contact page, and one of our friendly staff will either email you back or call you as soon as we can.
We have years of experience as employment solicitors in advising clients on compromise agreements and as such, feel we excel in this area and can provide you with a quality service. A compromise agreement is an agreement made on termination of employment which must meet certain statutory requirements for it to be enforceable. Invariably they include an offer of an ex gratia payment by the employer which may be tax free up to £30,000. One such requirement for a compromise agreement to be legally binding is for the employee to have independent legal advice so please do not hesitate in contacting us here at Oxford Employment Law Solicitors for expert legal advice. Other areas aside from Oxford where we provide our quality services are High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Banbury and >Witney.
The Employment Tribunals are independent judicial bodies who determine disputes between employers and employees over employment rights. An Employment Tribunal is like a court but it is not as formal. Almost all hearings are open to the public.
A claim is started when an employee presents a claim to an Employment Tribunal. The claim must be on a standard form and must contain certain information for it to be accepted. Acting for both employees and employers, we at Oxford Employment Law Solicitors are best placed to both draft claims to achieve the best possible outcome, and to draft responses for employer clients to try to defeat claims as early as possible.
There are strict time limits for submitting, and responding to, claims. For example, an unfair dismissal claim must be made within 3 months of the date of termination of the employment, and the employer has 28 days to respond. The time limits should be complied with if at all possible, but there are circumstances when late claims and responses may be accepted.
Please contact us if you are looking for advice on making or defending an Employment Tribunal claim.
