At Oxford Employment Law Solicitors, we advise both employers and employees on all aspects of employment law, so we have an excellent insight into the practical issues that arise in employment, how to prevent them arising and how to deal with them in the most efficient way.
An important starting point is the employment contract.

It is also a statutory requirement that employers provide a written statement of terms of employment within the first two months of employment for every employee. We tailor the employment contract to match the relationship, and many employers use our employment contracts in Oxford, High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Banbury, Witney and further afield.

Case law often shifts in this complex area of employment law, meaning that changes in what the courts deem as fair and reasonable can create pitfalls for employers. For example, how to determine the pool of employees from which to select, whether or not to consider ‘bumping’, and how to deal with pregnant employees or employees on maternity or other parental leave in respect of redundancy. Often a finding of unfair dismissal can arise from a simple, avoidable oversight in following the correct procedure.
