We protect our clients from expensive and time-consuming claims and disputes regarding various employment-related matters by offering tailor-made advice to meet your business’s needs today. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Drafting employment contracts and staff handbooks
  • Preparing and negotiating settlement agreements and ACAS COT3’s

In addition to our ad-hoc services, we offer an annual retainer, which enables you to access specialist, tailor-made advice and support on a day-to-day basis.

Employment Solicitors in Kent for Individuals

Doswell Law supports individuals employed in any job or career stage. From recently recruited graduates to senior executive directors, we offer personalised advice and support, whatever the circumstances.

We protect and support individuals at every stage of their employment process. This includes negotiating your employment contract and exit package, advising you when you have a dispute, or providing full legal representation at the employment tribunal.

Are you experiencing disciplinary action?

If you are accused of gross misconduct or poor performance, it may result in your dismissal and damage your future career prospects. Seeking personalised legal advice will put you in a stronger position to negotiate for a settlement agreement and avoid the need to bring an employment tribunal claim against your employer.

Did you resign as a result of your employer’s actions?

You may have a claim for constructive dismissal if your employer committed a fundamental breach of contract, such as acting unreasonably towards you, which makes it impossible for you to work, leading to your resignation.

Have you been subjected to discrimination or bullying treatment?

You may have a claim for discrimination if your employer has treated you less favourably because of a ‘protected characteristic’ such as sex, race, age, sexual orientation or disability.

Were you unfairly dismissed?

You may have a claim for unfair dismissal if your employer did not have a fair reason or behaved unreasonably by failing to follow a fair dismissal procedure.
