Employment for Financial Services

As leading City employment lawyers, we understand that employment issues within the financial services sector are often sensitive and complex. Many financial services employees are also subject to personal regulation as approved persons with the FCA/PRA, which adds an extra dimension of complexity.

We regularly assist financial sector employers and employees on the full range of issues that they face - from recruitment to departure.

For instance, we advise:

  • employers to ensure that their HR policies are not only sound from an HR perspective, but they also meet regulatory requirements, such as the FCA/PRA remuneration code.
  • individual employees applying for approved person status with the FCA/PRA
  • on the contentious exit of individual traders in investment firms who have been dismissed on grounds that are disputed - and on the management of their regulatory standing with the FCA/PRA
  • concerned employees on the requirements of the Statement of Principle and Code of Practice for Approved Persons where they have concerns about activities within their firms
