Employment | Termination
Our team has acted in high profile discrimination and whistleblowing claims. Given the cap on compensation in unfair dismissal claims and the increased media interest in cases of discrimination and whistleblowing, we have seen an increase in these types of claims.
We have significant experience and knowledge of the issues relating to the termination of employment. Our experience includes:
- Advice on liability
- The structure of termination payments
- Taxation advice
- Reviewing and tailoring of post-termination covenants to protect the business
- Addressing issues such as confidentiality and intellectual property
- Discrimination & whistleblowing
Avoiding discrimination and whistleblowing claims is important and we work with our clients to limit the risk of such claims by ensuring they have tailored procedures for dealing with such complaints. We offer training both to senior management and staff to highlight the issues and to encourage concerns to be addressed with a view to avoiding the need for subsequent litigation.
