Advice on HR and People issues

We advise employers daily on a wide range of employment law and HR issues. We act for employers of all sizes and across all sectors, from small charities to companies with several sites and thousands of employees. We aim to provide practical, robust, commercial advice when you need it – and that can be urgent!

Examples of the type of issues we advise on include:

  • disciplinary and grievance
  • Settlement Agreements (formerly known as Compromise Agreements)
  • self-employed consultants
  • restrictive covenants
  • employee benefits
  • family-friendly rights including maternity, paternity, adoption and parental leave
  • redundancies and organisational change
  • outsourcing and TUPE
  • poor performance
  • ill-health and disability
  • collective consultation
  • discrimination and equal opportunities
  • whistleblowing
  • Working Time Regulations
  • National Minimum Wage
  • Data Protection and GDPR

We can assist by telephone, by email or in person as you feel appropriate. We are happy to draft any letters or documents you need, or alternatively, we can review your drafts if you prefer. We can also assist with scripts, checklists and guidance notes to help you and your managers follow the right steps.

For all our clients we offer complimentary employment law e-bulletins, seminars and workshops to help keep you up to date on all the latest employment law developments. To see our recent updates and to join our mailing list, please visit our Legal Updates page.

“Nicola and Peter at Pure Employment Law have been providing us with advice and guidance for many years.  We have learnt a great deal from their newsletter and seminars, which have helped us to avoid many of the common HR pitfalls.

When we have needed their formal advice, they have always supported us to bring about the resolution that we were hoping for – Pure Employment Law understand that as a small employer we would rather nip issues in the bud.”

Tom JamesonManaging Director, Sussex Grange Ltd

“We are a local employer with an excellent reputation in the community we serve. Recruiting and retaining high-quality staff is very important to us, so being able to access cost-effective, sound and reliable employment law support on the occasions where this is necessary helps us to maintain this reputation. We are delighted to be working with Peter and Nicola.”

Alison MooreyChief Executive, St Wilfrid’s Hospice

“I have known Peter Stevens and Nicola Brown for a number of years both as a member of a local HR forum and as a recipient of legal advice. They have always been extremely supportive and reliable, offering clear and pragmatic advice. Their knowledge and experience is extensive, which is always reassuring when dealing with difficult situations.”

Jane BarkerChartered MCIPD HR Consultant

“We have dealt with Nicola for a number of years and Peter for even longer and have always experienced a speedy reply to our requests for assistance. Their response is consistently pragmatic and thoroughly thought out, often including a much-needed tinge of humour and an acknowledgement that we are not the first of their clients to have need of their experience in solving this particular problem.”
