Employment Law for Employers
Helping your business stay compliant with employment law
Employment law is a complex and fast changing area which can pose a substantial challenge to all types of business. Busy managers and HR departments often have insufficient time to deal with the red tape and keep up to date with the latest regulations. The employment law experts at W H Matthews & Co have many years of experience providing commercial and pragmatic advice on the wide range of employment law issues and we can help you achieve your aims and aspirations safe in the knowledge that your business is compliant with the law. We always stay focussed on your priorities and aim to be as practical as possible when suggesting solutions to your employment law problems. Our lawyers provide advice on the full scope of legal issues, including:
- Employment contracts and policies
- Disciplinary and grievance issues
- Settlement agreements/termination agreements
- Redundancy procedure
- Employment disputes and litigation
Prevention is better than cure
Ensuring that your contracts of employment are watertight and putting in place a comprehensive and up to date set of HR policies and procedures will help your business avoid costly litigation. We can work with you to create bespoke employment contracts and review existing contracts to ensure they are fully compliant with the latest laws. Our employment law specialists can also check your HR policies, assist you with choosing any additional policies which are relevant for your particular sector and provide you with a tailored set of documents for you to circulate amongst your staff. Here is a selection of HR policies which we can help you implement:
- Health and Safety

- Use of IT Equipment
- Maternity and Paternity
- Parental Leave and Shared Parental Leave
