The current situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the emergency provisions implemented by the government (eg the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme) are causing a great deal of uncertainty for both employers and employees.
Hardwicke’s Employment Team is well placed to assist you so please get in touch either with individual team members (see the Employment & Executive Disputes page for details of the team and their experience) or with Amy McClean who will be able to advise you on who best can handle your query.
If you are a solicitor, you may well want to make use of our Free Initial Employment Advice Scheme, details of which are set out below.
- Hardwicke Free Initial Discussion Scheme for Employment Issues
Hardwicke appreciates that many of you will already be being asked difficult questions by a large number of your clients relating to employment contracts. Our experienced Employment Team can offer you access to urgent, specialist advice on matters in an employment context arising out of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of our offering, we have set up a Free Initial Discussion Scheme (the “Scheme”) for solicitors with employment queries relating to the current pandemic. Those members involved in the Scheme are offering to have a brief initial chat with you over the telephone free of charge to help you ascertain your client’s legal position and the potential options that might be available.
If under the Scheme it is clear that there is an issue that requires further consideration, we are happy to discuss how we can take the matter forward.
If you would like to discuss either the Scheme or any other employment related matter further, please contact Amy McClean on 020 7691 0102 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be able to assess whether your query can be dealt with under the Scheme and deal with any other queries you may have.
