Atypical Working

At Walker Morris, we understand that the world of work has changed. Businesses no longer solely rely on the traditional “9 to 5” model when hiring people to do work for them. Likewise, individuals now come into the labour market with a variety of different personal circumstances, which employers need to respect and potentially accommodate.

Our Team of specialists has a wide range of experience in advising both sides of the employment relationship, always in a commercial yet sensitive fashion. We are experts in the law, but we channel this knowledge to identify commercially viable and attractive options.

We regularly advise our clients on the implications and opportunities presented by:

  • fixed-term contracts
  • part-time working
  • job shares
  • agency workers
  • consultancy arrangements and self employment
  • secondments
  • apprenticeships
  • requests for flexible working
  • working from home
  • volunteering
  • family rights.

We also work with our colleagues in other areas of the firm, such as our Pensions, Regulatory and Tax teams, to deliver a seamless service to our clients, enabling them to move forward in confidence in their new relationships.
