Employment Law for Employers

In the field of employment, the law is constantly changing. That is why you need specialist legal advice from lawyers who make it their business to keep ahead in this ever-changing area of legal work. At Sills & Betteridge we are able to offer a truly specialist employment law service to our clients through our team of employment lawyers.

If you are an employer, your legal obligations begin at the recruitment stage and continue even beyond the termination of someone’s employment. It is important to get the law right because mistakes can be very costly to your business. Our lawyers can help guide you safely through this complex area.

If you are an employee and believe that you may have a claim arising out of your employment, we can give you fair and sensible advice. You may simply require advice and assistance about your contract of employment, but if appropriate we can pursue your claim before an employment tribunal or through the courts.

Employment litigation cannot always be avoided. If you find yourself before an employment tribunal or a court, we will ensure that you are expertly represented in the most cost-effective manner.

Whether you are an employer or an employee, our expertise will ensure that you receive the best possible advice at every stage.


Matters we can help you with include:

  • contracts
  • director’s service agreements
  • dismissals
  • employment policies
  • managing employment changes and restructuring
  • post-termination restrictions
  • redundancy
  • regulatory compliance and regulatory bodies
  • settlement agreements
  • TUPE transfers

Client Feedback

  • Chloe, we just want to take this opportunity to thank you. There are not enough words to describe just how amazingly you have handled this whole process for us. We can’t thank you enough for supporting us through what has been a challenging few months!!

    Mr and Mrs Richardson
  • I asked Sharon to look into carrying out some debt collection and from the very first communication, Sharon took away all the stress and hassle which this situation can bring. Sharon kept me fully informed with what was going on and carried out the work in a professional yet personable manner. It was great when Sharon told me all the debt had been collected with late payment interest added and for me, it was a stress and hassle free experience and I would highly recommend Sharon’s services.

  • I wanted to say a huge thanks to Wendy for the help and assistance she and her colleagues have given me over the past few years, on a personal and professional level.
    Wendy is at the top of her game and has a wealth of experience which can only be gained through proven work experience. The legal advice you get is second to none.
    I have used Wendy’s services for the buy out of my previous business partner, a commercial bad debt and the conveyancing of a property sale and purchase. Throughout all of my dealings with Wendy, she has been professional and treated my cases with the upmost priority and has always had my best interests at heart.
    Thanks again Wendy for all of your help and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
