At MKB Law we have a team dedicated to providing practical and specialist employment law advice and assistance. We advise both employers and employees on all issues in this area. We appreciate that all of our clients have differing objectives and many require different levels of advice and assistance. On that basis we provide a cost efficient service that is tailored to your specific needs.

Legal Services for Employers

We understand that as an employer, effective management of your staff and human resources is crucial to your business. Minimising the risk of exposure to litigation by employees is important to you and the reputation of your business.

Many employers are unaware that their business insurance often provides cover for the legal costs of many employment issues, please contact us should you wish us to review your policy in relation to the indemnities provided by your insurer.

MKB Law’s Employment team can provide assistance with matters such as: recruitment, employment contracts, employee conduct, disciplinary procedures, settlement agreements, TUPE, redundancy procedures, and advising on issues which may give rise to claims.

Self Employed by a Company

Many companies offer self-employment roles, notably delivery companies where drivers often operate under self-employment terms. Although their title is deemed as “self-employed”, in reality their role resembles that of an employee. Under these terms, many could find they are losing out on entitlements, including: minimum wage and holiday pay.
