Our Employment Law department deals with a wide range of everyday matters affecting individuals.
We recognise that individuals can face difficulties at the workplace. Employees are sometimes treated unfairly by employers, often as a result of employers failing to understand or follow the correct procedures. When things go wrong it is unsettling and can bring a lack of security.
The UK has extensive employment laws and where a dispute has arisen, we will advise on the best way forward for a fair outcome. We offer employment law advice at the initial stage, through to representation at an employment tribunal or court if necessary.
Our expertise in Employment Law
Employment contracts. Employment contracts sometimes lack clarity, or are misinterpreted by the employer. We thoroughly investigate the wording of your contract in its full context, which enables us to advise you on your rights and obligations during or after employment has come to an end.
Unfair, wrongful and constructive dismissal. If you face dismissal or have been dismissed by your employer, we advise on grounds for challenging the dismissal, and what compensation may be available. We guide or represent you through the ACAS conciliation process and proceedings before the Employment Tribunal or Court.
Redundancy. Redundancy is only justified in specific circumstances and the correct procedures need to be followed. We ensure that all steps taken adhere to the correct rules and regulations.
Discrimination. In cases of discrimination, employees are heavily protected by law. If treated unfairly by an employer – whether it is based on, disability, race, gender, sex, or parental rights, there is protection available. We guide you through the full process of making a claim.
Disciplinary and grievance procedures. These procedures are very worrying and stressful. Although the opportunity for formal legal representation is limited, we will guide and support you through the process.
Settlement Agreements. If you have been offered a settlement agreement we can negotiate on your behalf and do what we can to resolve matters to your advantage without having to go to court.
