Employment

Employment law is continuously evolving as the government, Employment Tribunals and domestic and EU Courts seek to refine employment rights and obligations to keep pace with the modern workplace. It is crucial that employers keep up with the main developments and be ready to implement changes to contracts, policies and conduct to accommodate the changing legal environment. 

Ince & Co’s employment group provides clear and effective advice on complex legal issues and devises innovative yet pragmatic commercial solutions to ensure the best outcome for our clients, whilst ensuring that their commercial  and reputational interests are protected.

We advise a wide range of corporate employers (including global leaders in the areas of shipping, energy, insurance and commodities) providing a complete service from the drafting of contract documentation to the resolution of disputes. 

We can act on large scale litigation arising from team moves and breaches of restrictive covenants, whistleblowing and discrimination. We also advise on the employment law issues arising on corporate transactions and manage large projects such as TUPE transfers and corporate restructuring/redundancy processes. 

Examples of the issues in relation to which we have acted include: 

  >  Terms and Conditions of Employment, Service Contracts, Consultancy Agreements and Secondment Agreements

  >  Employer policies and procedures including disciplinary and grievance procedures

  >  Seafarer employment issues including the Maritime Labour Convention, Seafarer Employment Agreements and Crew Agreements

  >  Employment aspects of commercial transactions including business sales, share sales and outsourcing including advising on and assisting in the process of employment transfers under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employments) Regulations 2006
