Employment Law

Giambrone has a team of talented employment lawyers who can provide high-quality legal advice and enjoy an excellent success rate with regard to all types of employment-related claims, whether in the employment tribunal or the courts. 

Contentious Matters

We appreciate that very often a dismissal or dispute with your employer is a stressful unanticipated event and the ability to pay legal fees may present a problem. We also realise that you need to know whether or not you have a valid claim which justifies the need to instruct a lawyer. We can help by offering initial advice at a fixed fee, after which if you decide to proceed we can offer several options to assist you to take your matter forward.

In most cases, there are strict time limits within which you must bring a claim at the employment tribunal. However, with early intervention, we are confident that it may be possible to negotiate a settlement with your employer without the need to go to the Tribunal. This will minimise the cost, inconvenience and stress for you.

The types of claims we can assist with:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Sex discrimination
  • Race discrimination
  • Age discrimination
  • Disability discrimination
  • Sexual orientation discrimination
  • Religion or belief discrimination
  • Part-time or fixed-term status
  • Harassment, victimisation and bullying
  • Maternity and paternity rights
  • Breach of contract
  • Whistleblowing

Cross-border and General Employment Matters

We are not here just for when things go wrong, we can also assist with general employment matters; providing advice and guidance throughout your employment lifecycle. We have particular expertise with cross-border matters and can assist with the negotiation of re-location packages. 

We can help you negotiate your employment package and advise on your service agreement to ensure there are no nasty surprises. We can assist as your career evolves and can help guide you through changes to your contract including bonus schemes, share options and restrictive covenants.

The employment team is experienced across the full range of legal issues including contractual, statutory, tax and other employment matters. These include drafting and advising on employment-related documents and advising on corporate governance, disputes, discrimination, whistleblowing and severance issues. Our lawyers also work with clients on contractual and statutory matters such as bonuses, grievance and disciplinary procedures, staff exit strategies, post-termination restrictions and golden handshakes.

We have many years of experience and provide swift, practical and cost-effective advice on all employment issues including:

  • Discrimination and equal opportunities
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Settlement agreements
  • Disciplinary hearings and dismissal
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Director termination and severance

When you are ready to move on we will advise you on your exit strategy and negotiate on your behalf to ensure you obtain a satisfactory settlement. We will also ensure that any financial package is structured in the most tax-efficient way.
