The Employment Law (Jersey) 2003 has substantially altered the relationship between employer and employee. Fundamental aspects of the employment relationship such as payment of wages, minimum rest periods, annual leave, termination of employment and unfair dismissal are now all regulated by statute.
Benest & Syvret Employment team offers advice to both employers and employees an all aspects of employment law, whether contentious or non contentious.
We pride ourselves on offering practical and effective advice together with guiding employers and employees through employment law practices and procedures.
Details and helpful advice in relation to the content of the Law is set out on the Jersey Advisory and Conciliation Service website, www.jacs.org.je.
Since the implementation of the legislation Benest & Syvret has regularly been requested to provide advice both to employer and employee alike, including appearances before the employment tribunal.
We are equally in a position to advise on and draft employee contracts and handbooks so as to ensure compliance with the Law.
