We are ready to help you with any question related to your employees.
If a relationship with one of your employees, co-directors or partners has left you facing a dispute or a disciplinary hearing, we can assist you at every stage from the initial issuing of proceedings through to the termination of an employment contract. If required we can also defend you at the Jersey Employment Tribunal and explain how best to enforce any resultant restrictive covenants you have put in place.
If you are looking more generally at your business, we can help you draft employment contracts and HR policies and help you make every aspect of the way you manage and motivate your staff more robust.
If you are looking to expand via merger or acquisition or have decided to restructure, outsource or take on secondments, we will explain your duties and obligations. More importantly we will work alongside you to map out the most effective route to the end result you want, even if it involves bringing new staff onto the Island.
You can also call on us in regard to more specialist HR services, for example if you are facing a discrimination claim, we will advise you on the Discrimination (Jersey) Law 2013.
While our client list within the Jersey and Channel Islands’ business communities continues to grow, we are increasingly finding ourselves working internationally with some large and instantly recogniseable names. We are particularly well known for our employment work within the media and financial services sectors where we are retained by several blue chip companies.
This has allowed us to develop market-leading specialisms in complex multi-jurisdictional employment disputes and in advising our international clients on the use of Jersey law employment contracts for employees working in other countries.
