Employment

The employment team at Hamlins work closely with you or your in-house team to help you reach your business goals. These may include providing everyday HR advice, or they could involve securing the exit of under performing employees, winning employment tribunal claims, managing sensitive reputational issues, negotiating with trade union officials or restructuring the workforce.

We recognise that there’s no such thing as a typical employment issue, but that all issues require an understanding of the corporate concerns, reputational aspects, commercial expediency and need to maintain a business’s unique culture and ethics. We advise employers across a wide range of industry sectors to include construction, engineering, media, real estate, retail, travel and recruitment, in each case working in close partnership with our clients to find pragmatic and commercial solutions.

We are also experienced in acting for employees, which gives us the valuable ability to anticipate and deal with issues before they arise.

Because employment law changes so rapidly, we have the expertise to provide clients with dynamic and pragmatic solutions to enable them to move on to the next chapter of their business or personal lives.
