Any business that employs staff should know the importance of keeping up to date with employment legislation

Of course, that’s easier said than done when you’re running a business in an increasingly unsteady landscape. This is compounded if your business operates or has employees in multiple cities, states or countries. Even for seasoned business professionals, employment law can seem like a legal minefield due to its constantly developing nature.

With pressure piling up and day-to-day demands taking priority, it’s easy for business owners to trip up in the ever-changing world of employment law. At 360 Business Law America, we like to see ourselves as the legal safety net, preventing damage by helping you to implement best practice in all areas.

Our employment lawyers have extensive experience advising and representing employers across a multitude of sectors. From disciplinary proceedings and dismissals to layoffs andrestrictive covenants, you can count on us to keep your business compliant with the law.

Knowledge

Directors’ Service Agreements

Directors’ service agreements are designed to outline the relationship between the director and company, clarifying their roles and responsibilities to minimize the risk of business disputes. Our employment lawyers can offer practical guidance when constructing an agreement, ensuring that all parties are satisfied with their obligations from the outset.

Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures

In the unfortunate circumstances that an employee behaves in a way that is detrimental to the organization, employers must have the appropriate framework in place to deal with the situation in a way that is compliant with employment law. You can count on our dedicated team to help you develop and implement a disciplinary and grievance procedure that is firm but fair.

Employment Contracts, Handbooks and Policies

The terms of an employment contract define the rights, responsibilities and obligations within the employment relationship. Beyond the contract itself, you also need a set of policies that set expectations, outline grievance and disciplinary procedures and clarify statutory rights. Our employment lawyers work proactively with organizations across a broad range of sectors to draft employment contracts, staff handbooks and key company policies.

Employment Disputes

If an existing or former member of staff has chosen to take a dispute before an employment tribunal or the local court, our team of highly qualified employment lawyers can help. With vast experience representing clients varying in size and industry, you can count on us to defend your business, limit the damage and preserve your reputation.

General Employment Advice

Whether you’ve recently set up a company, are restructuring your business, are hiring from overseas or are looking to grow your team but simply want an experienced eye on your employment contracts, you can count on our lawyers to keep you right. Our employment lawyers are all highly qualified with at least five years’ experience assisting organizations ranging in size and sector – no case is too complex, and no issue is too challenging.

Layoffs and Restructuring

Layoffs are often a by-product of change in business. Whether unavoidable or as a strategic move to boost your chances of success, restructuring itself can be a daunting process, not to mention the stress of negotiating settlements with employees you might be letting go. Our employment lawyers are here to guide you through the process with pragmatic advice, assisting in the restructuring itself and helping with negotiations and documentation where necessary. Our priority is to support your business through change and ensure all layoffs are carried out fairly to reduce the risk of action being taken against you.

Restrictive Covenants

We fully appreciate the critical need for a business to protect its intellectual property: these trade secrets and unique assets make your organization stand out from the competition. We draw on decades of experience in employment law to advise clients on how to draft and enforce restrictive covenants, confidentiality agreements and dedicated IP clauses.

Whistleblowers

Our lawyers work closely with businesses to ensure that they are in compliance with state and federal protections for whistelblowers. Our team will advise you on handling these issues and guide you in the drafting of appropriate policies to reflect this.

Working Time Regulations

Our employment lawyers provide practical legal guidance for organizations to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations governing employee hours, overtime pay, etc., advising on employment contracts in relation applicable legislation.

At last a truly global low-cost law firm that’s easy to do business with

We believe in keeping things simple, the law may be complex, but that doesn’t mean that dealing with a law firm needs to be complicated, even on a global basis.

We act for a wide range of clients across multiple industry sectors, from start-ups; mid-market companies and government departments, through to NASDAQ listed companies in the US and FTSE 250 listed organisations in the UK. We help companies establish themselves in new markets and to do business in the most cost-effective manner possible.

With a large, highly skilled team of lawyers spread across an ever growing number of countries, established to satisfy our clients workload demands, we are re-writing the rule book as to the way legal services should be provided to clients, and the fees they should pay.

If you operate, or are looking to operate overseas, it is vital that you partner with the right team of legal advisers, and that they are not only skilled in the local law, but also in respect of the local culture and custom.

Owing to the structure of traditional law firms, even where they operate in multiple jurisdictions, it’s likely that a client will have to contract separately with each jurisdiction in which the client wants representation, as there is no central global administration! That’s not the case with 360 Business Law America.


Our law firm covers over 60 countries and brings together more than 200 highly qualified lawyers



We believe doing business, even on a global basis, should be easy. And with us, it is.

A client can choose to contract with us in the USA or the UK, and we will administrate their entire global workload, through a single point of access, wherever they need legal advice or services globally. And at the end of each month, quarter, or project, as the case may be, they will receive one single invoice, detailing the services we have provided worldwide.

Also, being a high-tech law firm, our proprietary state-of-the-art case and time management web and mobile portal allows our clients to see which lawyer is dealing with their work, the status of their matter, the hours expended and yes – even the bill – how unusual you might say – true transparent pricing from a law firm!

We have achieved many firsts as a disruptive law firm, but one we are still very proud of is that we are possibly the only law firm that offers Global Subscription Legal Services – where a company can join and receive legal advice and services in every country in which we operate, within a single fixed subscription fee that doesn’t increase for 12-months.
