Employment Law & HR

Pickerings' employment team has an excellent track record of advising clients from a wide range of sectors and of various sizes. The reality is that your employees should be your greatest assets, but if things go wrong they can also be a great source of difficulty. Employment law also changes on a regular basis – and employment tribunals are costly, so it’s important to get the most up-to-date advice.

Simon King, Sue Hatton & Jonathon Forrester

Our team has experience across the range of employment issues and the service we provide can be tailored to meet your particular needs. It may be that you simply need the occasional telephone advice to check that you have your facts straight, or take advice on a problem you have not encountered before; equally you may need hands-on support at your workplace.

Either way we can help, and provide the training and support that you need to keep your business on track.

Should you need representation at Employment Tribunal or in the Civil Courts, we have considerable advocacy experience.

We also offer our PEP Scheme - Pickerings Employer Plus, a fixed-cost employment advice and insurance package.  This allows you to seek expert advice as often as you need it, and  provides insurance cover against employment-related legal costs.

What our clients say...


Pickerings have stayed with us every step of the way through a difficult and, at times, an emotionally draining, settlement agreement process, lasting several weeks. Their calm and timely approach has enabled us to make good progress and finally to bring about an appropriate settlement. Any query no matter how small or complex, was dealt with quickly and efficiently and we felt completely supported all the way through. I would recommend their service to any employer.
