At MKB Law our team are dedicated to providing practical and specialist employment law advice and assistance. As one of the leading employment solicitors in Belfast we advise both employers and employees on all issues in this area. We know that our clients have differing objectives and may require different levels of support. On that basis we provide a 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 company. Minimising the risk of exposure to litigation by employees is important to you and indeed 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.
Our team will provide assistance with matters such as: recruitment, contracts, employee conduct, disciplinary and grievance procedures, settlement agreements, TUPE, redundancy procedures, and advising on issues which may give rise to claims.
Legal Services for Employees
We offer advice and support to employees in relation to a variety of issues that may arise at work. This typically includes: breaches of contract, discrimination (on the grounds of sex, religion, disability or sexual orientation), grievance and disciplinary procedures, unlawful deduction of wages, and unfair dismissal.
We appreciate that seeking legal advice in relation to your employer can be a sensitive matter and we ensure that full discretion is maintained at all times. Our team will provide assistance with contracts, grievance procedures, and advising on status and rights dependent on individual circumstances. We will also facilitate drafting, lodging and representing claims to the Employment Tribunal and negotiating settlement terms.

I came in to your offices laden down with stress and could not see a clear path through my employment issue. I was introduced to Suzanne Keenan who after one appointment understood the details of my case and got in to action straight away.
A truly efficient, professional experience; Suzanne has such a great way of cutting to the chase and getting the best outcome. I couldn’t be happier with the result and highly recommend MKB Law.
Ms Anon – Employment Matter
My dealings with MKB Law were extremely positive. I found Suzanne Keenan tremendously professional, confident and empathetic to the situation I was in. Throughout my case Suzanne was exceptionally reassuring and delivered all work to both myself and the other party on time and to an excellent standard.
She fought tooth and nail for me the entire way and I am delighted with the outcome of my case.
Ms H – Employment Matter
Suzanne is the most competent and thorough solicitor I’ve ever dealt with. She mixes compassion with professionalism and pragmatism. With Suzanne’s help I achieved what was the best outcome for me in my circumstances. She was easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to every query, which in itself did much to allay the intrinsic anxiety of the whole process. She is a fearless and tough negotiator when the situation demands – I cannot recommend her highly enough.
