Employment Law Advice for Family Businesses

Family-owned businesses experience unique employment issues.

  • Should family members employed in the business be treated the same as non family employees?
  • Should family members be guaranteed a job in the family business regardless of merit?
  • Should family members be excluded from employment in the family business altogether?

Quick Enquiry


It is vital for the success of a family owned business that the parties know where they stand and that the employment relationship is clearly defined. Sensitively drafted contracts and policies need to be backed up by day-to-day practical advice and support. We work closely with family-owned businesses to understand their individual needs and to help avoid conflict or misunderstandings.

Our family business employment specialists can guide you through these and other issues and advise you on how your employment policies are affected by legislation.

They understood how to balance the need to deliver a result with the need to keep family members on board.
