Testimonials

Very thorough and professional service.

Very thorough and professional service. I would recommend Oakwood Solicitors wholeheartedly.

- Client

Very prompt, efficient and polite.

It was nice to be able to speak to a 'real human' during these times of Covid, rather than corresponding via email which seems to be the case in so many other organisations. Well done for keeping the personal touch.

The experts in Employment Law matters

What does our Employment and HR Package offer you and your business?

  • Protect your business and enable it to flourish with insurance-backed advice.
  • The certainty of cost with our 1-3 year fixed-fee service.
  • Affordable for all sizes of business – prices dependent upon the number of employees.
  • Flexible monthly payment plan.
  • Unlimited Employment Law and HR (employee relations) advice by phone, email, and in person.
  • Bespoke contracts of employment, staff handbook, and GDPR employee privacy notices.
  • Discounted rates for other Oakwood Solicitors Ltd services.

Designed to protect your business

Due to the abolishment of the requirement for employees to pay fees to bring Employment Tribunal claims, there has been a sharp rise in claims against employers. The average cost of defending one claim is around £8,000 per case – which an employer is unlikely to be able to recoup from the employee, even if the employer successfully defends the claim, and the claim was without any real merit.

Our clients benefit from unlimited employment law and HR advice with a view to avoiding employees bringing claims against them, without compromising our clients’ commercial aims. In the event that an employee does bring a claim against one of our clients, the legal costs including any settlement or award will be taken care of by our insurance cover – providing certainty of outcome and cost. This allows business owners to concentrate on the most important aspect of their time – maintaining and growing their business.

Dedicated point of contact

We know how important continuity is, which is why you’ll enjoy direct access to a named, employment law advisor* who will support you with all employee relation and employment law issues, including:

  • Disciplinary process and dismissals
  • Dealing with grievances
  • Varying contracts of employment
  • Redundancies
  • TUPE transfer (sale or purchase of all or part of a business)
  • Dealing with complaints of sexual harassment or discrimination

Value for money

Prices start from £31 per week including insurance, and we offer a flexible range of payment solutions.

Unhappy with your current provider?

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for clients to join us having had poor service from other providers, but are still within their contracted period with that provider. Due to our flexible payment arrangements, we can offer clients a discounted rate for an initial advice period, which will cover them to the end of their contract with their previous provider (the ‘Advice Period’).

During the Advice Period, your company will enjoy the benefit of our legal expertise to resolve your workforce issues without having to jump through hoops and navigate through red tape. However, you will not be paying for insurance cover with us during this time (unless required) or for the drafting of contracts, handbooks, or GDPR privacy notices until your contract with your previous supplier has expired. This essentially provides you with a cost-effective second opinion.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose Oakwood Solicitors Ltd?

You will have a dedicated advisor who will see your matter through from start to finish, assisting you in the event of any queries or issues you may have. If it is preferable to you, we are able to assign a female advisor to carry out your matter.

Your case handler will also continue to provide regular updates until the conclusion of your matter, ensuring the process is as stress-free and effortless as possible.
