Manchester has been voted as one of the best places in the UK to open a new business. When new businesses open and grow they require employees, and one of the most difficult aspects of managing a business is ensuring that all of the employment law requirements are adhered to. Manchester solicitors who specialise in employment law are often able to ensure that these complex rules are followed. For example, Manchester solicitors might advise businesses as to the rights of employees regarding sick pay.
Employment specialists rely on past cases in order to shape their advice. For example, in the case of Manchester City Council v Thurston it was clarified that if an employee becomes unable to work as a result of stress related to a disciplinary hearing, that employee may still be eligible for sick pay, even though the hearing was a result of that employee’s actions. This is contrary to the rule which states that in assessing the right to sick pay an employee cannot receive such payment if the sickness was self inflicted. Employment solicitors must be familiar with this case whenever they provide relevant employment advice.
Manchester solicitors obviously offer commercial clients other legal services in addition to employment advice, such as company registration and tax advice. There are also many Manchester solicitors who deal with private (non-commercial) clients, and offer legal services such as divorce and family law advice, or estate planning. If you have a legal issue which you are unsure about, or you would like to know what your legal rights are regarding a particular matter, you may benefit from speaking with Manchester solicitors about your situation.
