Specialist advice on working time regulations for employers

Tees advises employers on effective and practical ways of managing their employee’s rights to take time off work. Time off work covers a range of issues – such as an employee’s statutory entitlement (to sick pay or holiday pay) and maternity leave.  

Our specialist employment law solicitors will help you meet your obligations to your employees in a way that’s cost-effective, practical and manageable for your business. Our focus is to protect your business from the risk of a claim being made against it, and ensure any policies and procedures comply with your legal obligations to employees. 

We provide comprehensive advice on:

  • Working time, rest periods and annual leave entitlements
  • Sickness and ill health absence
  • Time off work to carry out public duties
  • Maternity, paternity and other family related rights
  • Flexible working requests
  • Defending claims including constructive dismissal and discrimination.

How we work with you

We understand the types of issues you may face in this area and commonly receive queries about whether or not a particular employee is entitled to time off, whether they are eligible for flexible working, how family related rights can impact on working time and an employer’s obligations and whether there are appropriate policies and procedures in place to comply with the legal obligations.

 We can:

  • Advise on employee/worker’s rights and your obligations
  • Draft and/or review agreements and policies
  • Assist with any procedures and processes
  • Train your staff
  • Handle any litigation.

Our costs

We deliver costs transparently, and we always discuss legal costs at the outset. We can agree our level of involvement to be commensurate with your budget, and we can be involved as much, or as little, as your business requires. We can provide ad hoc advice as required, and prepare guides, scripts and template letters for you to use.
