Your role in managing your client’s property and finances may include arranging a complex ‘care at home’ package. Whether through contracting with employment agencies or by employing a carer directly, we can help you achieve the most financially efficient solution, and the best quality of care.
Employment law is complex, and constant changes present numerous challenges for Deputies and Attorneys. By choosing to work with our specialist employment lawyers, Deputies who employ carers can ensure that the Estate is fully compliant and that it is protected against opportunistic employment claims.
Martin Searle Solicitors is one of the few law firms in the country which specialises in community care law for Attorneys and Deputies, and therefore have the necessary employment law expertise to handle the specific issues which Attorneys and Deputies face.
Because we act for both employees and employers, we can help Attorneys and Deputies resolve disputes with either their employees or the Care Agency with whom they have contracted to provide care services.
We understand that in some cases the overriding aim is to maintain your client’s relationship with their carer. We therefore offer solutions tailored to their unique set of circumstances. This could mean helping to remedy a situation without unsettling your client or placing their care package in jeopardy.
With our help, all contractual terms can be negotiated and set up to ensure the Estate is protected and the employee’s rights are maintained.
Should you or your client be in the unfortunate position of having to defend a claim, we provide a complete defence service.
If you are a Professional Deputy or Attorney and require advice and assistance on any employment law matter, we can help.
