Am I safe at work ….. from coronavirus and from redundancy?

I promise this is not yet another piece aiming to answer all the questions about what happens next at work.  There are plenty of these already flooding the media and internet.  I think there are just too many variables, too many questions to try to answer these questions so that they are relevant to all. You may be concerned about…

How can I keep my job safe during the coronavirus crisis?

It’s been a whirlwind hasn’t it!  Keeping ourselves and our families safe is our number 1 priority.  But what about employees needing to know their rights and obligations at work and, for employers, making sure that managers are keeping their businesses afloat while trying to look after staff matters ….. and all the financial consequences? The announcements have come thick…

Should I Sign An Employment Contract?

Apart from browsing potential summer holidays to book, job hunting is another popular January activity that you might be doing. In the month of resolutions and fresh starts, when swept up with the enthusiasm of looking for and embracing a new challenge, it can be tempting to overlook some of the detail, so as not to focus on the negatives,…

Some of our Google reviews

5 star review  I found both Gillian and Alex from Patch Law a joy to work with. The service provided by both was timely and professional, with Gillian spending a lot of time explaining to me the meaning of various clauses of a legal document requiring my signature. I would not hesitate in using Patch Law again and would recommend their service to others wholeheartedly.

5 star review  I would highly recommend Gillian to anyone in need of employment advice. She offers a highly professional as well as caring service, listening sensitively to understand a person's individual circumstances and offering experienced and well-considered advice. She manages the process through very attentively which leaves you feeling that you are in very good hands. Her fees are very competitive and represent very good value for money.

5 star review  I instructed Gillian Patch of Patch Law who is a Grade A Solicitor during the Pandemic/Lockdown. I always check the SRA website to check how long someone is qualified for before I instruct them to ensure they are regulated. She was made aware of my personal restrictions in leaving my house. Several documents were sent to her and due to her extensive experience she was able to identify the relevant documents. She was also able to respond remotely in a tight timescale and there were no delays in her carrying out my instructions as a Client despite probably being very busy dealing with other Clients. She acted in the best interest of the Client by considering both the financial issues of leaving and the practical issues of leaving but also recognised the difficulties for a Client not being able to see a Solicitor in-person and the trust needed in the Solicitor-Client relationship. Instructions were provided remotely email and telephone and Geography was not a problem in terms of acting in her professional capacity. It was easier to discuss issues over telephone given that when I do go out I am conscious of wearing a face mask and that does create a barrier to communication. During the correspondence she was able to provide an objective opinion on the issues. There is often a saying an individual cannot be their own Doctor, the same is true an individual cannot be their own Lawyer. Your not objective on your own life. Having extensive experience myself with Solicitors I tried to keep the Legal costs to a minimum by responding quickly but also ensuring everything that needed to be covered was covered.
