Employment Solicitors in Henley, Oxfordshire
This department is part of the Business Services Team and works in conjunction with the commercial litigation and commercial property departments, to provide business clients with all round commercial expertise.
Employees are often the greatest asset in a business and at Mercers we understand the importance of employers ensuring that they are kept abreast of constantly changing legislation and that their documents and procedures comply with all current legal requirements.
"Mrs W approached Mercers for advice. She had already received advice from another firm of Solicitors through her legal expenses insurance who told her she had no claim. Mercers felt differently and advised her to issue proceedings. Happily she reached settlement with her employers. They paid her compensation in the amount of £45,000."
At Mercers we advise both Companies and individual employees in respect of compromise agreements. Company Y instructed us in the preparation of an agreement for a senior executive. After careful drafting of the agreement, we provided continuing assistance to the Company in order to finalise the agreement expediently. The Company in expressing their thanks to us said that the process had been managed quickly and effectively and the relative complexities of compromise agreements explained in plain English.
We recognise that employment-related problems can be stressful and confusing and we will endeavour to guide you in as straightforward and cost-effective manner as possible.

- Unfair and wrongful dismissal claims
- Compromise agreements
- Termination of Employment
