Employment Advice for Businesses

Avoiding any disputes with your employees is extremely important in running an efficient and successful business.  Whether you require structural advice on your staff relations or you find yourself in a dispute with an employee, you should have professional advice that takes into account the sensitivity often required in employment situations whilst protecting your business interests. 

Many of our clients have welcomed the opportunity of having us review every aspect of their employment structure from the contracts and policies in place, to systems and procedures for handling disputes and all requests and other employment related issues.  We are happy to have an initial meeting with employers to assess their requirements and provide a fee structure of charges for any work or advice needed.

By taking a commercial, practical and authoritative approach to employment disputes, we aim to help prevent employment problems before they arise by putting in place contracts, policies, systems and procedures aimed at avoiding expensive, time consuming and destructive employment disputes.  When problems do arise, we look to deal with issues promptly, pragmatically and cost effectively so you can continue running your business.

Employment Advice for Individuals

Your rights as an employee can become complicated.  Whether you find yourself in a dispute with your employer or need assistance to negotiate your employment terms or exit package (including End of Service Gratuity), it is important to take professional advice that takes into account the sensitivity often required in employment situations whilst protecting your interests and rights. 

You may require a review of your rights generally if you are just starting your employment here in the UAE and our specialist team can advise you on your contract and visa requirements.

We also advise on Settlement Agreements and are able to help negotiate to achieve the best possible outcome for you and reserve your rights should this escalate to issuing a claim in the Courts.
