Employment legislation and protection changes rapidly and regularly. At Bell Park Kerridge, we have the experience to help keep you up to date and help you fully understand your legal obligations as an employer.

We help clients to resolve problems quickly when they occur – but we also work with businesses across Cumbria to help them identify future issues and avoid disputes before they arise, as a problem avoided is always better – and cheaper – than having to deal with it later.

However, sometimes issues are more complex. If they are, our expert litigation team will be on hand to help you. We have vast experience of handling employment tribunals and our dedicated employment team will support you from beginning to end.

Our specialists also regularly carry out compliance checks for employers who have Sponsorship Licences, ensuring our clients avoid penalties which can range up to £20,000 for each individual if they’re not compliant with UK regulations. We ensure our clients have the right systems to comply with Home Office requirements and identify any gaps before any compliance visit.

Our specialist skills include:

  • Contract drafting, re-drafting and critique
  • Terms and conditions
  • Contract disputes
  • Employment procedures
  • Staff handbooks
  • Redundancy and dismissal procedures
  • Employment Tribunals
  • TUPE

We can also provide advice to Senior Executives on a wide range of areas including:
