In these unprecedented times, Axiom Stone Solicitors will, in common with other businesses, be following the Government's official advice on social distancing and social isolating.

Public health measures must have the highest priority and, as a result, some staff will be working from home. Also, our offices will be closed to visitors.

However, we wish to reassure existing and potential clients that we will continue to provide the highest levels of service.

Please be assured we have a robust business continuity plan in place that is designed to minimise the impact on our service to you.

In addition, please continue to contact us electronically or by phone in relation to the progress of your matters or on any issues of concern to you.

Until further notice, service of claim forms, application notices and all other court documents and contractual notices must be made to our head office only (we shall not accept service through any other means). Our head office address is at Axiom Stone Solicitors, Axiom House, 1 Spring Villa Road, Edgware, Middlesex, HA8 7EB. We ask that all other correspondence be sent by email to the relevant member of Axiom Stone Solicitors. In the event that service of court documents or contractual notices is attempted by post, courier, DX, or fax to any address other than that of our Head Office, we cannot provide any assurance that they will be received or processed. We are grateful for your understanding at this time.

We will update this information regularly on our website (Please see COVID-19 Updates Here) and via social media.

Finally, we urge everybody to follow the official advice on fighting the virus outbreak so enabling you to stay safe and well.

Work and Family Life

Maintaining a work-life balance is not always easy and may require, in certain instances, a flexible approach from an employer to accommodate caring responsibilities and a disability.

Flexible working can mean the following:

  • Part-time or term-time work
  • Compressed hours – where an employee works the total number of contractual hours over a shorter period
  • Flexitime – where an employee works certain agreed core times but is otherwise free to organise their working hours outside of these times
  • Home working for part or all of the time
  • Job sharing

A right to flexible working hours can be requested if they satisfy the following:

  • They are an employee
  • They have worked for the employer for 26 weeks
  • They have not made a request in the past 12 months
  • They are not in one of the groups of employees who are not entitled to ask for flexible working – for example, an agency worker

An employer must ensure that they respond to the request in a reasonable manner and on certain prescribed grounds. They must also give the employee the right of appeal.
