Here at Lincs Law, our main goal is to provide our clients with an outstanding service and advice. Usually, when we meet our client’s for the first time they are facing difficulties at work and consequently, they are not feeling their best. Therefore, to receive the following comments from our client’s during at and conclusion of their matters really is heart-warming.
We are thrilled to have received lovely feedback from a recent client of Lucy Stones.
Settlement Agreements are legally binding contracts which can be used to resolve ongoing workplace disputes or they can be used to end an employment relationship. They are voluntary and generally include some form of payment to be made to the employee. In essence, once a valid Settlement Agreement has been signed by both parties, the employee is unable to pursue or make any Employment Tribunal claims.
Gross misconduct is considered to be an action so serious as to justify summary dismissal. For more information about what constitutes gross misconduct in employment read on.
At Lincs Law we regularly meet people who are experiencing difficulties at work. These can range from their working conditions, performance issues as well as experiencing forms of bullying or harassment. Understandably, any issue that you are experiencing at work can have a huge impact on you which can also intrude into your home life too.
This is a common question and not surprising given today’s advanced technology. The general answer to this question is that recording any part of the meeting where the employee was present may be admissible before an Employment Tribunal if the Tribunal believes it is relevant to the facts of the case. However, any covert recordings of private discussions (such as the disciplinary panel deliberations) will not be admissible albeit there are rare exceptions to this rule.
We are thrilled to share with you feedback from a client which was received this week for our Associate Employment Law Solicitor, Lucy Stones.
The simple answer is yes, you can. Whilst an employee receives additional protection whilst on maternity leave such additional protection should not be seen as a ‘blanket cover’. An employer is entitled to continue investigating potential disciplinary matters which come to their attention.
Here at Lincs Law we regularly advise both employers and employees on all Employment Law issues. Lucy Stones recently supported and provided advice to an employer in Lincolnshire to create, review and issue contracts of employment and key Employment Law policies and procedures.
