Employment law for employers

Ensuring that your business has a happy, motivated and productive workforce is key to your success – whether you are the owner-manager of a small business or head of an HR team in a large corporation.

In most cases, regardless of the size of your organisation, the same employment laws apply. However, we recognise that you will have your own distinct needs, objectives and ethos and will carefully consider them to find solutions that work for you.

We will work in partnership with you to understand your business. Our experienced team delivers a responsive, approachable and no-nonsense service. We know that, in your role, time is a precious commodity and we aim to keep things simple so that you can focus on your day-to-day activity.

We serve businesses, the public sector, not-for-profit organisations and employees across the region and beyond.

You can select from our range of services depending on your budget and the level of support you need:

  • You can engage us whenever you wish on a case-by-case basis. We will give you a clear estimate or agree a fixed fee with you at the outset, based on our very competitive hourly rates.
  • We recognise you may want to budget for your annual spend on employment law services. Our range of bespoke monthly retainers, as well as a fixed cost annual protection plan, BUCKLESprotect, can help you do this. You can use our helpline to speak with our specialist employment solicitors and receive a comprehensive review of your current employment contracts and staff handbook.

We can also offer you bespoke training for your HR team, directors, managers or staff on any area of employment law, either at our seminar rooms or at your offices.

Additionally, the employment law team runs a programme of free seminars and issues a monthly e-bulletin on employment law developments. You can follow the team on Twitter (@BucklesHRLaw). Please register here if you are interested in receiving our monthly update email.
