Running a business is a huge undertaking. You may start on your own, but once you reach a certain point you’ll need employees to help.

When they work well, your business will be like a well-oiled machine. But disputes can make things disharmonious and bring a halt to progress.

When managing a team of individuals it’s a certainty that there will be some disputes along the way.

Clashes between employees? Something you failed to take into account when drawing up contracts? Regardless, it’s better to get them resolved as quickly as possible.

The best way to resolve disputes is to avoid them happening in the first place. Areas of employment where disputes may come about include:

  • Unfair Dismissal - getting rid of employees without following procedures or good reason.
  • Discrimination - treating employees unfairly based on protected characteristics.
  • Breach of Contract - breaking a contractual obligation you have to the employee.
  • Workplace Bullying - when employees are singled out or harassed.
  • Maternity Rights - failure to comply with pregnant women’s workplace rights.
  • Contract - ignoring contract terms, or failing to provide employees with SMTs.

If employment disputes come up, you may worry about having to go to an Employment Tribunal, but this is the last port of call.

With the help of Bendles, you can avoid the stress and legal fees of tribunal. We use alternative dispute resolution methods, these include mediation and arbitration. Unlike an Employment Tribunal, they’re confidential so you won’t have to worry about your disputes being visible to the public.

At Bendles we maintain that it is better to be proactive as opposed to reactive. If you get in touch with us soon enough, we’ll help you do everything you can to make workplace disputes a rarity.

We can draft clearly written contracts, so there are no grey areas to argue over. We’ll help to implement proper discipline and grievance procedures.

Don’t wait for the threat of employment tribunal to loom overhead. Get in touch with our employment dispute specialists, Stuart Irving and Michael Johnson, for a consultation now. Give us a call on 01228 522215 to book one sooner.
