Employment lawyers FAQs

What is covered by employment law?

Employment law comprises of all matters related to the workplace. Employment lawyers are usually used to help businesses or individuals navigated all aspects of their work relationship, from contracts of employment, advising a business on good practice and, in unfortunate situations of a relationship breakdown, they would conduct case management and hearings in the employment tribunals.

Should I use a flexible legal service to look after HR-related legal matters?

Yes! HR-related legal support often requires ad-hoc or project support and is one of the most common areas of flexile legal support. Companies often require an overhaul of their contracts or policies which is very suitable to working with an experienced lawyer to draft and roll out followed by ongoing Lawyer on Demand support as needed.

Do all employment lawyers work from home?

No. Sometimes employment lawyers go for meetings in person (especially if tribunal or disciplinary hearings require them to attend or support a business) but generally the work can be easily completed remotely.

Does Obelisk Support help with employment tribunal hearings?

Obelisk Support does not usually work with litigious matters. However, an Obelisk Support employment lawyer can assist with disciplinary matters before they reach a hearing and guide an organisation through the process.
