Whether you are looking to put in place a robust employment relationship with professionally drafted employment contracts and handbooks (policies), or you face an existing or potential problem with an employee, Holmes & Hills will give you the expert legal advice you need.

We provide a wide range of Employment Law advice and representation covering a wide range of issues and circumstances facing employers.

Expert and effective Employment Law advice

Our goal is to ensure you and your business are in the strongest possible position in terms of your employment relationship with your staff. Should you have a contentious issue, it is our aim to see that this is resolved with a favourable outcome and as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

Employment documentation

As listed above, our employment specialists can advise you on putting in place robust employment documentation such as contracts, handbooks, records of training and policy statements. Or they can review your existing documents to ensure they offer you the necessary protection. Ensuring these fundamental items are in place from the outset offers you the best protection from future claims that may be made against you.
