Employment law is a complex and everchanging area at the best of times, and the outbreak of Covid-19 has only added to this. We are experiencing an unprecedented level of legal developments on a daily basis. The current climate is causing uncertainty for both individuals and businesses of all sizes and sectors.

Whilst the government is doing its best to keep the economy going with regular guidance and legislative updates, it’s easy to fall behind on what you are obliged to do as an employer, or what you are entitled to as an employee.

However, please remember that you do not have to navigate this legal minefield alone – our team of Employment law experts are here to help you. From Furlough to redundancy, we can advise you on everything you need to know, regardless of whether you are an employer or employee.

If you are a business, we can supply you with legal advice either through our comprehensive Employment Law Package or on an ad hoc basis – whichever suits you best. However, by signing up to the Employment Law Package, you’ll be kept up to date on all the latest changes as soon as Boris announces them!

Equally, if you are an employee and are unsure whether your employer is complying with its legal obligations or if you would like clarification on your legal position in light of the newly announced Covid-19 measures, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our Employment law team.

Our offices may be temporarily closed at the moment but rest assured that our services are continuing as normal, and we are still on hand to help. Our Employment law team have remote access to email, files and case management systems and, whilst we regrettably aren’t able to meet you face to face at this time, we are only a phone call or email away. Should you instruct us, we are more than happy to communicate with you via telephone, email and video conferencing.

Please feel free to contact us at KerryCurd@wbw.co.uk, JamesEdmonds@wbw.co.uk or HarryHarley@wbw.co.uk or give us a call.  

Take care.

The WBW Employment Team
