Employment and HR
Transport operators are employers just like any other business but the specialist nature of their work calls for specialist road transport law expertise and an understanding of how transport undertakings actually operate as well as more general employment law knowledge.
Obtaining the right advice at the right time (preferably before employees are disciplined or their employment terminated) can save huge amounts of time and money.
Pellys Transport and Regulatory Law can advise fully on all employment issues, including the preparation of proper contracts appropriately supported by comprehensive staff handbooks, grievance and dismissal processes, as well as all necessary procedures in connection with the possible dismissal of employees.
We can also advise on all best practice required for the training of employees to ensure that all their operator's licence undertakings are complied with.
Pellys Transport and Regulatory Law can advise on settlement agreements for employees following their redundancy and/or dismissal and advise both employees and employers.
We advise fully on the circumstances in which the TUPE regulations can arise and all of the necessary procedures involved.
It is vital that operators are aware of the breadth of the TUPE regulations particularly when taking over bus routes/regular services from other operators.
Trade Union Negotiations
Pellys Transport and Regulatory Law can advise fully on aspects of Trade Union recognition and the responses to applications for Trade Union negotiations as well as the statutory requirements on both unions and employers.
