Employment

We are one of the largest and most experienced employment law teams in the south-east of England. We provide commercial solutions. We advise on recruitment issues and the full range of employment and family-friendly issues. We can support your business with grievances, terminations and any issues that might arise along the way.

Boyes Turner’s employment team has extensive experience advising organisations on complex discrimination and whistleblowing issues and navigating our clients safely through the plethora of employment regulations. We advise employers engaged in the sale or acquisition of their business or company, on issues including TUPE and dealing with employment due diligence.

The team is strategic as well as operational and we act as an extension of our clients’ human resources or legal teams, providing immediate day-to-day advice and assistance on all employee and related issues.
