Onboard for Local Employers

Solicitors Sarah Naylor and Janine Lawton, who head up our Employment Team, were treated to a day aboard a yacht sailing from Gosport to the Isle of Wight.

 The event, organised by Temple Legal Protection, was in recognition of the hard work the team has put into the scheme which is designed to help businesses minimise the potential for employment disputes and their consequences.

 A successful claim against a business can be extremely damaging, both in terms of reputation and the financial cost. Last year, unfair dismissal awards were up to £234,549 whilst the largest award for disability discrimination was £729,347.

Senior employment solicitor, Sarah Naylor said: "The employment service packages we offer are tailored to meet individual business needs, and can include expert legal advice on areas such as redundancy, disciplinary and grievance procedures. 

 "We offer a free of charge initial consultation that will also include a quote for the cost of the package chosen.

 "Business owners have the added assurance that should an Employment Tribunal arise, the costs will be covered by the insurance policy with Temple, which is included in the fixed price package."
