Our Employment team has extensive experience in providing all aspects of employment law services to public sector organisations. We’re always on top of the latest employment law changes and provide strategic, ground breaking and operational advice to clients, including regular training and insights to our clients.


Our expertise in handling sensitive claims means that we can provide you with the support you need to deal effectively with the most difficult and public of cases. Our robust approach often leads to the withdrawal of claims which can save significant amounts of money for our clients.

We understand that discrimination claims will be a particularly sensitive area for you, and our team has real expertise in handling discrimination claims across the public sector.

Disciplinary advice

Our lawyers have advised on disciplinaries against officers at every level, as well as providing training to disciplinary panels. This includes using case scenarios to tease out the real issues affecting officers. We’ve also worked with services to help reduce their sickness absence rates and improve their approach to equality and diversity.


As you begin to work in collaboration with other emergency services we can help you navigate any obstacles around TUPE, pensions or changing terms and conditions of employment.

HR Advisory service

Our employee relations service specialises in the following areas:

  • Support to reduce sickness absence.
  • An investigations service.
  • Support to help your organisation manage change.
  • Tailored HR advisor service.
What our clients say about us
Capsticks HRA and Capsticks Legal provided us with guidance, support and advice during a recent COSoP transfer of more than 700 employees. They were on hand to support us at key meetings with relevant stakeholders including staff side representatives, identify risks and develop correspondence such as consultation documents, measures letters and FAQ’s. Capsticks delivered their services in a timely manner and ensured that the transition was seamless. I would not hesitate recommending them.
