    DPH Legal is a firm of employment lawyers serving employees and employers in the Oxford area. We are an independent Oxfordshire law firm that aims to offer legal advice and services at the highest possible levels with fees more affordable than the larger legal firms.

    Our clients have placed their trust in DPH Legal for years to assist with a wide spectrum of workplace issues. The firm has an outstanding reputation with well over 140 client reviews across several trusted platforms. All of our lawyers have extensive experience and a track record of successful results in every aspect of employment law. They are registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and members of The Employment Law Association, and The Law Society.

    We assist and service employees’ needs on every level with the full range of employment-related issues including redundancy, whistleblowing, bonus disputes, and unfair dismissal. More information on each employment law matter we can provide help with can be found below. We understand how distressing a workplace dispute can be and our lawyers are able to offer the expert advice and support that is needed in such situations.

    For employees who are facing harassment, discrimination, and other forms of unfair treatment, we can assist with bringing a grievance. However, in situations where disputes cannot be amicably resolved with employers, we can provide representation in the Employment Tribunal.

    In cases of redundancy, we also provide settlement agreement advice, explaining the terms of the agreement in clear language. We also discuss with our clients if a fair settlement is being offered by the employer or if we could negotiate a better exit package.

    Our solicitors act for employers ranging from small business enterprises to large corporate entities.  We provide employer clients with legal advice in relation to all aspects of employment including redundancy selection, whistleblowing issues, and performance management processes, as well as grievance and disciplinary procedures. We also defend employer clients against claims brought in the Employment Tribunal.

    In relation to non-contentious matters, we regularly assist with drafting employment contracts, workplace policy documents, and settlement agreements. We also provide advice in relation to TUPE and the purchase or sale of businesses.

    In most cases, we are able to advise our employment law clients via email, telephone, and Microsoft Teams video calls.  Call us at 01865 565325 or complete our Contact Form to arrange a free, confidential call back from a qualified solicitor.

    Alternatively, we can also arrange for you to meet one of our Oxford solicitors.
