Employ­ment

Giving you confidence

Overview

It’s our goal to ensure that your busi­ness thrives and enjoys pos­i­tive employ­ee rela­tion­ships, despite the chal­lenges that legal red tape pos­es for all busi­ness­es. We under­stand that advice on employ­ment law needs to be not only accu­rate, spe­cif­ic and com­mer­cial, but also swift. We have the expe­ri­ence to achieve this and to solve your problems.

We focus on get­ting to know you, devel­op­ing long-term rela­tion­ships as we guide you through the ever-chang­ing legal and indus­tri­al envi­ron­ment. We assist you by draft­ing employ­ment con­tracts which min­imise expo­sure to awards, lessen the risk of claims and empha­sise clar­i­ty, flex­i­bil­i­ty and simplicity.
