Employment advice for employees
Whether your employment dispute concerns discrimination, breach of contract, severance agreements, redundancy or similar issues, it is prudent to seek professional employment legal advice.
Knowing where you stand greatly reduces the stress involved. We provide clear, cost-effective advice that will help you resolve your dispute and protect your position.
Our employment law team has an excellent reputation. We act for directors and senior executives, particularly in the City of London, dealing with complex and often highly sensitive circumstances.
We settle matters discreetly without incurring unnecessary time and expense.
We discuss the intricacies of your situation honestly, and give you clear, practical advice. We also encourage you to be frank about your objectives so we can then ascertain how realistic these are and formulate a strategy to achieve the best possible result.
Once proceedings have begun we keep you up to speed with progress and answer any questions you may have. When a resolution is reached we can advise you how best to structure your settlement.

Gavin Tyler provides TUPE advice to key clients and has an “easy manner and way of expressing things that enables clients to fully understand what they need to do to avoid the worst-case scenario.”
Gavin Tyler is a “first-class employment lawyer” and has an active specialism advising professional services clients.
The ‘responsive’ and ‘practical’ team at Cripps.
“Gavin Tyler has particular expertise in the employment aspects of corporate transactions and is “notably technically sound”, according to clients.”
Rhona Darbyshire, an associate at the firm, is praised by clients for her conscientiousness. She is well known in the field and handles litigation at tribunals for employers and employees alike.
The “knowledgeable and conscientious” Rhona Darbyshire is “thorough. Her advice is sound and the letters she produces are always completed to a good standard. She understands our requirements and she listens.”
The firm is particularly known for its contentious and non-contentious work in the media sector, and for charities and non-profit organisations.
“Excellent performance – we followed their advice and haven’t had cases against us since.”
“I have nothing but praise for Cripps . Their operation cannot be faulted.”
The team “understands what clients want to achieve, gives all options, is pragmatic and clear,” and they “speak as businesspeople.”
Cripps provides a ‘prompt and efficient service’ to clients on employment, property and governance matters.
Everyone at Cripps has always focussed completely, and successfully in helping us to achieve the outcome we’ve been looking for.
Cripps have always understood quickly our requirements, identified all of the potential options and recommended approaches that have met our objectives perfectly every single time.
Cripps have always responded to our requests for help incredibly quickly which has been invaluable especially when situations have been fast moving.
“All of the advice, help and support has been hugely pragmatic and very clear.”
At the same time, Cripps are a total delight to deal with. In truth, we consider them to be true partners with our best interests always at heart.
Not only are the team at Cripps outstanding lawyers, we also trust them completely. We feel genuinely lucky to work with such remarkable partners.
All at Cripps speak clearly and plainly. Happily, there’s absolutely no legal jargon. We speak about business issues and practical solutions. Doing business with Cripps could not be easier.
We are in the service industry and hold ourselves and our partners to the very highest standards. And I am delighted to say that I would recommend Cripps whole-heartedly.
“Working with any of the lawyers from Cripps is a collaborative affair – rarely is it a case of us asking a ‘legal’ question and simply getting back a ’legal’ response.
“It’s more about discussion, with the advice we receive not only helping us to achieve the outcome we were working towards but often suggesting alternatives and highlighting points for further consideration. “
This helps to grow our own knowledge and understanding, adding to the quality of our work and, in our view, is a unique way of working with a firm of solicitors – a relationship with trusted consultants rather than simply legal advisors.
“The ease of access to the experts we need at a ‘value for money’ price makes doing business with Cripps easy – we would have no hesitation in recommending Gavin Tyler and his team to other organisations.”
Rhona Darbyshire is "very empathetic and always willing to go the extra mile."
Gavin Tyler is "highly commercial and clear and expert in his advice."
"The team is very responsive, even to short-notice requests, and its advice is almost invariably right on the button."
