TUPE
TUPE stands for the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006. These regulations ensure that employees who are transferred to a new employer on the transfer of a business, do not suffer any detriment in the new employment.
There are a few ways that employees can be affected as a result of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations. One example of this is if an employee is transferred with a pay reduction, a loss of a pension entitlement, a loss of a right to a redundancy payment, or a loss of a right to statutory redundancy pay.
Disciplinary
Disciplinary procedure in employment law is a measure taken by an employer to address unacceptable behaviour such as insubordination, poor performance, or misconduct.
Employers typically follow the progressive discipline process, where they begin with verbal or written warnings and then move up to suspensions and finally, termination.
Discrimination
Age, sex, race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or another personal characteristic can be a basis for discrimination.
Equal Pay
Equal pay is the principle that all people in the same workplace should be expected to be paid the same rate for the same job, irrespective of their sex or other personal characteristics.
Redundancy
When being made redundant, you may be offered another job or redundancy pay. Employees are usually entitled to statutory redundancy pay if they have been working for their employer for 2 years or more.
If you are selected for redundancy because of pregnancy, disability, or age, this can be classed as unfair dismissal.
Unfair dismissal
Reasons for unfair dismissal include but are not limited to dismissal due to gender, age, disability or any other form of discrimination; if you asked to work flexibly; joined a trade union; took part in industrial action; exposed wrongdoing in the workplace (whistleblowing); were forced to retire.
Unpaid wages
Our employment solicitors can advise on unpaid wages, help settle disputes between employers and employees, advise on issues of final pay, maternity/paternity pay, sick pay.
Settlement agreements
A settlement agreement allows both sides to reach an agreement and avoid tribunal. It is your right to consult with a solicitor regarding your settlement agreement and usually, the employer covers the legal fees.
Employment contract
Our solicitors can help draft, review and advise on employment contract, NDA agreement and other documents.

As the nature of employment changes, so does employment law, and it can be hard to keep up on your own. In today’s world, where employment law is no longer limited to what your employees do at the office from 9-5, navigating this challenging atmosphere is easier with professionals helping you every step of the way. Through the pandemic, employment culture has shifted drastically in the UK , and new questions for employers have arisen, especially in the context of working from home. Sterling Law will help guide you through this minefield to make sure both you and your employees are treated fairly.

Our team has years of experience in employment law, and has carefully kept up with every change in government guidelines over the last year. Despite our small size compared to Big Law, our reviewers rate as one of the best firms in London for employment law, and we are proud of our 4.8/5 star rating as a firm.

With our help, you can ensure that your employment policies are up-to-date, beneficial to you and your workers, and adjustable when you need them to be. Among other areas, we can help you take care of customs and practices, implied contract terms, restrictive covenants, as well as general employment law and disputes. It’s no coincidence that startups consistently choose us to help them get off the ground running, so they can spend their first few years running their businesses and developing their ideas, and not worrying about their employment contracts.

Oftentimes, it can be so exciting to get a new job offer. So exciting, in fact, that you might skip over one of the most important parts of starting a job; making sure your employment contract is fair. Sterling Law has years of expertise in this area, and we can advise you on your contract, as well as help you deal with discrimination in the workplace and workers’ rights. Hopefully, now that you are employed and you have a good contract, you will be able to get on with your work happily and securely.

 

However, issues can arise during work too. One of the most common issues people can face is dismissal from their employment – and this dismissal can often be unfair. If you are dismissed without good reason – such as asking for flexible working, refusing to not take rest breaks, asking for parental leave, or taking part in short industrial action, Sterling Law can help you recover. Our expert team has dealt with hundreds of issues in employment law, and we will build a strong case to make sure that you can only be dismissed on a legal basis. We can also help with constructive dismissal – when you are forced to leave your job, despite not wanting to, because of the way you are treated at work. This is not limited to harassment from your boss or other employees – if you are demoted arbitrarily or unreasonable changes are made to your contract, this is often illegal, and Sterling Law will help you exercise your rights.

We are also experienced in a variety of legal areas after something has happened at work; our team can help you with settlement agreements, tribunal cases, whistleblowing, furlough advice, working rights, and almost anything else that your case involves.
