Employment Solicitors Ballymena
Cultivating and managing harmonious employer/employee relations is central to the success of any business. Those relations are impacted by changing industry conditions. We at Fisher Law are acutely aware of, and particularly sensitive to, the extent to which the employment environment in the Ballymena area has been devastated by recent announcements in the manufacturing sector.
Providing sound legal advice to both employers and their staff can be a challenge in the face of constantly evolving employment and industrial relations law. Accurate legal input on issues such as dismissal and discipline regularly needs to be sought and provided at short notice. That is where we believe we add value to employers with our bespoke client retainer packages.
Both business owners and employees worried about their treatment or futures can rest assured that the advice given at Fisher Law is underpinned by a comprehensive knowledge of subjects such as:
- Recruitment and selection
- Contracts of employment
- Unfair/constructive/wrongful dismissal
- Grievances/disciplinary procedures
- Equal pay
- Fair employment
- Discrimination (age, race, sex, disability)
- Principal/agent relationships
- Bullying and harassment
- Compromise agreements
- TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings Regulations)
We are also well versed in the procedural requirements of the Industrial and Fair Employment Rules and have represented both employers and employees at Case Management Discussions, Pre-Hearing Reviews and substantive hearings. Where appropriate, we will recommend the implementation of mediation to resolve employment disputes, as a less confrontational way of preserving the employer/employee relationship.
