Employment for Business

We recognise that employment law is complex and fast changing and it is difficult for employers to keep up to date. The Employment Team provide advice on all aspects of employment law. We understand that your employees are the most important part of your business but when things go wrong they can be costly to you both in loss of management time and financially.

Our advice is practical and robust. Our solicitors are down to earth and efficient with significant experience and technical knowledge of employment law. We focus on your business and will work with you to provide you with pragmatic and commercially sensible advice to help you achieve your objectives.

To support clients, we offer a retainer package service ‘Be Sure with Employment Law’, in-house training tailored to your needs, regular seminars held at Fakenham and King’s Lynn and a regular employment newsletter.

In addition to specialist employment advice, we work in conjunction with HR consultants, to enable us to provide you with access to a trusted HR consultant whether on an ‘ad hoc’ basis or for a particular project.

We offer a full and comprehensive employment service to employers, including:

  • Employment contracts, policies and handbooks
  • Performance and disciplinary problems
  • Advising on dismissals and grievances
  • Settlement Agreements
  • Reducing hours of work and redundancies
  • Transfer of Undertakings
  • Restrictive covenants – drafting and enforcing
  • Cost to your business

Here at Hayes + Storr we understand that what one employer wants is not necessarily right for another employer. That’s why we are prepared to work with you to offer you what is suitable for you.

We act for employers on both an hourly rate basis, a fixed rate basis or on a retainer scheme basis. Our costs are fair and transparent; we will discuss costs with you.  For more information about the payment options available please contact Tina Maxey for a no obligation discussion. If you are looking for advice based on solid experience, contact us.

A detailed example of the service we provide in relation to defending unfair/wrongful dismissal claims together with a sample cost estimate can be found here.



Is it fair to dismiss an employee without notice where there is no single act of gross misconduct and without prior warnings?

Can dismissal amount to discrimination where the employer did not know the disability was connected to the misconduct?

Can disciplining a disabled employee for sickness absence amount to disability discrimination?

Part-time workers: Can an employee on a zero-hours contract compare themselves to a full time employee for the purposes of a part-time workers discrimination claim?
