A Common Sense “Real World” Solution

Leeds Commercial Ltd.

×

“Having used a number of different Employment Law advisors in the past, we always seem to have had the same problem – while they are happy to talk you through the legal aspects of the case, they haven’t actually wanted to suggest a solution.

The main difference with William B Rose is that not only have they been able to advise on the legalities of the situation but, more importantly, and to us what makes them stand out, they have also been able to convert their advice into a common sense “real world” solution to allow us to actually deal with the day to day issues that crop up.

Our main point of contact has been available almost 24/7, with responses being in a matter of minutes and they are never too busy to draft or help with the most basic of issues right through to complicated claims.

The prompt and accurate advice we have been given has allowed us to deal with most issues before they have got out of hand and on the rare occasions things have escalated, we have been confident enough in our actions and procedures, following on from their advice, to be prepared to dispute any claims. In the past, we probably wouldn’t have had the confidence in our position to go to a Tribunal as we recently had to with one employee, but the preparation and attention to detail by our advisor led to the claim being rejected in its entirety and a costs order being made against the Claimant.

We look forward to many more years of working with William B. Rose.”

Employment Law Advice

The Managing Director of an Office Fit-out company in Stoke-on-Trent approached us for some expert Employment Law Advice as one of his competitors had recently hired a few members of his sales team from under his nose. Obviously, being concerned (not to mention angry!) that they would most likely have taken their lists of contacts and valuable databases with them to the competitor, he wanted to know if there was anything he could do about it.

Straight away our Lawyers reviewed his Contracts of Employment to find they were 9 years old, with no restrictive covenants or confidentiality clauses included. This left us very little we could do for the employees who have already gone to the competitor. However, we did a full redraft of the firm’s businesses Contracts of Employment & Employee Handbook to include water-tight clauses to cover him from any further instances of this nature in the future.

We advised the Director of how to get his current employees over to the new Contracts thus protecting his business from prying competitors trying to get the upper hand on his business. The moral of the story? Even when damage has been done that no amount of employment law expertise can undo, there are always valuable lessons than can be learned and – more importantly – real, effective measures that can be taken to avoid such damage reoccurring.
