Employment law advice

Our employment legal advice team supports organisations with legal advice to establish and manage both people structures and their people arrangements.

We guide you through business set up and organisational changes, like workforce integration / separation or legal and regulatory change, as well as partnering with you to overcome challenges to your people structures such as terminations and employment claims. We provide pragmatic advice on complex people challenges such as long-term sickness absence, dismissals and senior exits. 

We work as part of RSM’s wider People Advisory Services and so our employment legal expertise is supplemented by specialist colleagues in employment tax, share plans, HR, and payroll, ensuring our advice to you is seamless and holistic. 

Applying our unique combination of legal, HR and employment tax specialist knowledge, we advise organisations on issues such as National Minimum Wage, holiday pay, equal pay and employment status enabling you to address all practical and legal aspects of these regulatory challenges.

  Employment contracts / policies - We draft and review employment contracts and policies to ensure ongoing compliance, best practice and to protect your organisation’s commercial aims and interests. 

Workforce restructuring - We advise on the employment law aspects of workforce change, including TUPE and collective redundancy issues, ensuring compliance whilst meeting your commercial and cultural aims. 


Dispute resolution and Tribunal claims - We provide commercial and practical advice to help you resolve workplace disputes and advocacy services to defend claims in the Employment Tribunal. 


National Minimum Wage / Holiday Pay / Equal Pay reviews - We undertake NMW, holiday pay and equal pay reviews to ensure you are compliant with developing case law and legislation.


Employment status reviews / IR35 compliance - Working with our employment tax team, we carry out employment legal and tax status assessments, IR35 compliance reviews, and reviews of the contractual framework.
