Employment issues can sometimes become difficult and unpleasant, which is why there is a tendency to allow a situation to continue for so long without resolution.
Eventually, the situation will still need to be resolved with legal advice.
In a small jurisdiction such as Jersey, we understand that employment law matters and workplace issues need to be handled with determination and discretion. That’s where we can help you.
Parslow’s employment lawyers have a proven track record in providing advice and representation on a wide range of complex employment law issues.
Our employment lawyers have the experience and knowledge you need. We’re committed to helping you get the best outcome possible.

We recognise the importance of providing sensible and sympathetic advice and assistance to individuals when dealing with problems at work. That’s why our lawyers support you through your issue to ensure you know where you stand at all times while also making the process as painless as possible.
Our employment lawyers specialise in providing providing employment law to Jersey businesses and employers. Our HR support team regularly help to resolve all types of workplace disputes.
Whether it’s advising on discrimination claims, structuring employment policies, or requiring specialist pension or employee incentive advice, our employment law solicitors aim at all times to achieve the highest quality of service and the best possible results for our clients.
Restraint of trade clauses are common in Jersey employment contracts. A typical clause will prohibit a former employee from working in a specific area of employment in Jersey for a period of time. It’s important for business owners to regularly review the efficacy of their restraint clauses and for those who are leaving employment to be aware of the impact such a clause can have.
Parslows are regularly asked to interpret and deal with such issues. Whether you’re an employer seeking to enforce, an employee being accused of a breach, or you’re simply entering into a new employment contract and seeking some limited advice on the terms of the restraint of trade, we’re here to help.
Parslows have unrivalled expertise in negotiating and advising on compromise agreements. Our employment lawyers negotiate and provide advice to employees at all levels of seniority.
If you are offered a compromise agreement, you should get expert Jersey legal advice as soon as possible. We can advise you on any claims you may have and can negotiate the best compensation package in your circumstances, ensuring that the agreement is adequately drafted to provide you with the protection you require.
Many Jersey businesses can rarely justify the cost of a full-time HR presence within their business. On the other hand, with ever increasing employment law and regulatory issues, you’ll have to deal with a range of HR issues and employee problems at some stage in your business career. Making a mistake can be extremely costly.
At Parslows, we have a dedicated team that provide Jersey businesses with access to HR advice and guidance on employment laws. We get to know your business so we can give you practical and pragmatic advice based on that knowledge and understanding – and it won’t cost the earth either.
