Wards Solicitors’ specialist employment lawyers – both for business and personal matters – are all now members of the Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) dedicated to promoting best practice in this fast moving and constantly changing area of the law.
The ELA’s 6,000 members are drawn from every branch of the legal profession and include solicitors and barristers acting for both employers and employees, trade unions, the voluntary sector, industry and the judiciary.
Day to day help for employers
Two members of our commercial team, Partner Bridget Juckes and Solicitor Associate Joanne Turner can provide all the advice you need to help ensure you fulfil your legal obligations as an employer including comprehensive advice on how to protect your business in its day to day running.
If things go wrong
