Employment Law Firm

What areas of Employment Law do JWK Solicitors cover?

A business's greatest asset is its workforce. But the law relating to employment and industrial relations is rapidly evolving and complex.

A business needs an experienced, practical and commercial approach to Personnel and Human Resource support and employment disputes. JWK Solicitors has a dedicated and specialist employment law team who can offer the following services:-

Employer Protection Scheme

JWK Solicitors have teamed up with Reid Hamilton Insurance Brokers to offer an Employer Protection Scheme, which is designed to give Employers peace of mind. 

The JWK and Reid Hamilton Employer Protection Scheme enables you to focus on running your business whilst we look after your employment law requirements.  For a monthly subscription, JWK’s Employment solicitors will review your employment documentation to ensure it is fully compliant with current legislation; provide telephone advice and, should you find yourself at the receiving end of a claim, represent you through to a Tribunal hearing, which is backed by insurance cover, plus cover for additional benefits.

Contract Audit

Our contract policy and procedural review service ensures you are in step with the law and provides protection and flexibility if there is a dispute.

Employment Tribunal representation

At the outset, we will realistically assess the strengths of your case, possible outcomes and costs involved. We will help you to comply with time limits and directions, and put you in the strongest possible position.

Settlement Agreements (formerly known as Compromise Agreements) - Employer Advice

We can draft these in order to avoid the need for most Employment Tribunal and Court proceedings, guide you on what compensation to offer and negotiate the signing of the deal.

Employment Law Dismissals

Mistakes in this area can lead to costly, time-consuming legal action. We will guide you all the way, ensuring that you have investigated properly, followed a fair procedure, reached a reasonable conclusion and offered a right of appeal.


We will guide you through the key principles - some of them complex - covering consultation, fair selection and a range of other matters. We will ensure you understand the timescales and costs involved.

TUPE Transfer (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations)

We work closely with our Commercial department to ensure a smooth transition between businesses.
