Employment contracts
Employee conduct
Disciplinary and grievance procedures
Settlement agreements
Redundancy procedures

Self-Employed by a Company

Many companies offer self employment roles, notably delivery companies drivers. The distinction between being employed and self-employed may not always be clear or defined however and problems may arise. Although deemed “self employed” in reality the role may resemble that of an employee, typically known as “bogus self employment”. Under these terms, many individuals could find that they are losing out on entitlements such as minimum wage, sick pay and holiday pay.

You can find out more about this area on our dedicated Self Employed by a Company page.

Client Feedback

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.
