Butcher and Barlow can advise on all your employment law requirements as an employer from drafting up to date employment contracts and policies and procedures to advice and assistance in minor problems that may arise or complex transactions affecting your staff such as business transfers and collective redundancy situations.

Our aim is to gain a working knowledge of your business and build a close working relationship with those responsible for the HR function in your business whether that be a partner, director or a dedicated HR manager.

  • Drafting of Compromise agreements;
  • Redundancy and lay off/short time working
