Within any workplace, disputes can inevitably occur. At Walker Morris, our Employment Team does everything it can to prevent disagreements in the workplace, misunderstandings and injustices in the workplace. We have years of experience, dealing with a broad range of disputes across a vast array of sectors and industries. Whilst we strive to preserve good relations, we are never afraid of fighting our clients’ corners to the hilt, and have successfully acted on behalf of employers, employees and trade unions.
We help organisations of all shapes and sizes to put in place and implement tailor-made disciplinary and grievance procedures. We appreciate that a policy is not worth the paper it is printed on if it is not understood and adhered to, and so we regularly provide bespoke initial and refresher training to in-house teams on how to get things right.
When disputes do arise, we endeavour to head things off as soon as possible and lighten the load for our clients. We are regularly involved in mediations and other forms of alternate dispute resolution (including via ACAS and judicial mediation), and advise on the relative pros and cons of compromise agreements and without prejudice discussions.
Where disputes cannot be resolved, our Team of specialist litigators, with wide experience in the Employment Tribunals, the High Courts and the appellate divisions, can advise on handling a wide range of claims including:
- all forms of discrimination, harassment and victimisation
- wages and other pay claims.
