The law does provide quite a wide, and often confusing, set of laws which are designed to protect you and your family and we can help you understand which, if any, is applicable to your situation and how best to use the law to help you.
We can help with any aspect of family rights.
Depending on your personal situation, there may be a number of different rights that apply to you. For those actually pregnant, Maternity Leave and the rules surrounding it can be confusing – we can help you understand your rights, and those of your partner. If you’ve had your family but need help to enable you to continue working whilst juggling family responsibilities, we can help you there too. There are protections which may apply to you if you are seeking help to conceive, and there are different laws which apply if you are at the other end of the spectrum and going through the menopause. Here at Bridge we can help you work out which law you need and if it applies to you.
We regularly work with senior executives and professionals who:
We can help you make contact with your employer, and do our best to keep your employment relationship alive (if that’s what you want) and where that fails we can take you through a potential claim, a settlement or a Tribunal claim if that is appropriate.
We help mothers, fathers, guardians and adoptive parents with a range of employment law issues. Family life is so important, and senior employees shouldn’t have to give up their rights because of their position. Our lawyers can help:
Your employer must first identify the reason, and they must then follow a fair procedure, which generally means following the ACAS Code. They may have their own disciplinary procedure which may have more details, although they are rarely bound by these as they are usually for guidance rather than obligatory.
We are experienced in the field of family-friendly legislation, and at Bridge we practice what we preach. All our staff work flexibly, and we have first-hand experience of how to juggle a professional job, give excellent service and maintain a family-life. We provide a quality service at a reasonable cost and we can work with you to enable you to continue your career after having your family.

Lee and his team at Bridge employment law did an excellent job for me. The advice received was professional, timely and pragmatic. The outcome achieved was acceptable to all parties and was completed within the agreed commercial framework. A good piece of work, thank you. I would not hesitate to recommend Bridge Employment Law to my professional contacts.
We wouldn’t recommend anyone else the support have had from the team at BRIDGE has been excellent
Thank you so much for all your help and support our practice is a better place now, we couldn’t have achieved the outcome without the team at BRIDGE
“the team at B R I D G E understand the demands of our veterinary practice and make commercial recommendations explaining our options clearly – they have helped with everything from ensuring our employment documentation is up to date to advising on a complex employment dispute, with their help we achieved an excellent outcome….[we] could not recommend anyone else but BRIDGE”
I used Bridge Employment Law in connection with the completion of my Settlement Agreement and would recommend them and in particular Emma to anyone who requires employment legal advice. I particularly found Emma to be very knowledgeable, understanding and compassionate at a time I found myself in a difficult and stressful position.
I have engaged the services and advice of Lee a number of times with regards to HR and always found his support very pragmatic, professional and commercial. I was always impressed how he maintained awareness of the end goal and drew up a plan to ensure this was always achieved with cost management in mind. A world of HR knowledge and advice always there. I would highly recommend Lee and will continue to engage his support in the future.
Lee is our first port of call for employment law advice. He takes a commercially orientated approach, tailored to each situation, and is mindful of the nature and size of our business. His support has guided the organisation through challenges with clarity, given confidence to our team and enabled us to make decisions based on sound professional advice. His charges are fair and his service is valued.
Lee and his team at Bridge HR did a superb job. When dealing with an alien environment it's important to have the best advice, a balanced view between the emotion and the legal perspective. Good guidance and clear pricing was central throughout the process delivering a good result.
I have worked with Lee for over 3 years now on employment and HR issues. Lee gave me invaluable advice on the sale of my business and subsequent employment contract. He is commercially focussed, personable and I trust his advice 100%. His in depth knowledge and judgment has been first class and I would not hesitate in recommending his legal services to any of my professional connections.
I have used Bridge employment and in particular Lee Stephens to assist with a number of employment related issues. I have found them to be very professional and supportive in dealing with sometimes very complex issues. Helping both the company and the employees come to an amicable resolution. I would recommend their services to anyone and everyone as we have always received first class advise on all potential possibilities allowing us to make clear informed decision. Thank you
