If you need advice on family-friendly rights, discrimination and whistleblowing

When you need advice on family-friendly rights & flexible working

There are a whole suite of rights available to parents under employment law, from maternity leave to adoption leave, and all employees have certain other rights, such as requesting flexible working, or taking unpaid compassionate leave.  Dealing with those rights in practice can be complicated, as they are technical areas and are always changing and developing.

Our team has years of experience in this growing part of employment law and can advise you on the position under current legislation and give you practical assistance in dealing with questions that you or your employees may have.

When you need advice regarding discrimination

Equality and diversity are very important in the modern workplace, and issues around discrimination should be treated with understanding and sensitivity.  However, discrimination is a complex and technical area of employment law with the potential for large uncapped awards of compensation in the event that matters aren’t handled correctly.

Our team is on hand to provide advice to employers on what to do when faced with allegations of discrimination within your organisation, as well as how to avoid them through robust policies and high quality training.

When you need advice about whistleblowing

Whether whistleblowing is something you have experienced in your business, or if this is an area you know little about, it is in every business’s interests to ensure that a robust policy is in place. Encouraging the reporting of potential wrongdoing through internal channels may help to avoid fraud, regulatory breaches or financial scandals, and employment tribunal claims.

The well drafted policies, quality training and specialist advice that Kennedys provides in this area can help ensure your business doesn’t become liable for uncapped damages, and we can support and represent your organisation through any employment tribunal claims involving whistleblowing issues.
