Employment Law Specialist Jobs

Employment Law Specialist jobs involve advising on all aspects of employment law which may affect any aspect of human resources including advertising,  recruitment, anti-discrimination legislation, contracts of employment and redundancies. 

An Employment Law Specialist can be an experienced HR Practitioner or a qualified Solicitor. An Employment Law Solicitor is likely to be part of a solicitors firm and give advice to organisations for a fee, or work freelance contracting out their services on an ad hoc basis. 

Larger organisations may even have a need to permanently employ an Employment Law Solicitor in-house. Non-solicitor Employment Law Specialist jobs are usually very experienced HR Practitioners who, again, could be employed in-house solely in this function, work on a consultancy basis for a management or HR consultancy firm or be self-employed undertaking ad hoc work or projects as required by their client base.

What does an Employment Lawyer do?

  • Advising clients on aspects of the law relating to their case.
  • Researching documents and previous cases to create legal arguments.
  • Drafting or preparing legal documentation, such as contracts or claims.
  • Conducting negotiations on behalf of clients.
  • Ensuring that agreements are implemented.
  • If the case reaches court, representing clients or instructing barristers on the case.
  • Taking instructions from clients.
  • Supervising the training of junior employment lawyers.
