Employment law is a complex and rapidly changing area and it can be challenging for a busy GP practice to stay up to date with current legislation and apply it in tandem with the raft of NHS regulations.
Even a small mistake made when dealing with a disgruntled employee or partner (the discrimination rules apply to partners too) can result in a costly claim being made against a practice.
Similarly, an employee must stick to specific timescales and process if they wish to bring a successful claim against an employer.
Employment claims can be stressful and time consuming so it can sometimes be tempting to ‘pay your way out’, but this will often simply encourage further claims. Our team of experienced employment solicitors will advise on merits and take the problem away from you.
