Employment law and pensions

‘Clients value RadcliffesLeBrasseur’s commercial-edged advice, pragmatism, jargon free discussion and more individualised advice.’ Legal 500

  • Redundancy
  • Short or long term sickness absence
  • Termination packages, including drafting compromise agreements and advice on whether the approval of the Charity Commission needs to be obtained

Workshops, seminars and updates

Our clients are kept up-to-date with new employment laws and regulations through our free workshops and seminars and our regular briefings.

The purpose of our workshops is to share knowledge and experience. Each workshop is interactive, designed to give our clients in-depth knowledge of a particular area of employment law with a case study to put their new knowledge into practice.

We are also able to provide clients with tailor made workshops and courses which can be delivered at their own premises.
