Employment law in the education sector

Martin & Co is renowned for its work in the education sector throughout the north west. Currently, we act for five further education colleges, three schools and one city academy, dealing with all of their employment law issues.

Whilst employment law is employment law, regardless of the sector, there are certain nuances within the education sector, and having a lot of experience in this field gives us an edge.

The sector is heavily unionised, which means that employees are more likely to know their rights, which generally leads to plenty of issues for the HR team. At Martin & Co, we tend to be seen as just an extension of that team, which means that our education clients are usually very loyal to us.

We have successfully advised on many claims in the Manchester tribunal for sex discrimination, race discrimination and disability discrimination, and in respect of unfair dismissal. We have also advised on redundancy programmes and restructuring exercises.
