Employment Law advice for Employers:
Our employment lawyers firmly believe prevention is better than cure. Employment law remains one of the fastest changing areas of law and can prove a costly area for mistakes, which means accurate and up-to-date employment law advice is essential to protect your business.
From our Brighton office, we advise sole traders, SME’s and large corporations on their employment law needs covering a significant range of disciplines, professions and industries.

This can be arranged by appointment.

- Disciplinary and Grievance procedures, Social Media policies, Equality and Diversity policies, Pregnancy and Maternity policies, Data Protection policies, Sickness and Absence policies and Flexible Working advice.
