Employment law for employees
Our team of specialist employment solicitors offer employees a full range of services on both a privately funded basis and, in many instances, under our popular NO WIN-NO FEE scheme.
Unfair and wrongful dismissal
If you have been dismissed by your employer we can assess whether your dismissal was fair and whether the correct statutory procedures were followed. Depending on the circumstances of the dismissal we can advise if you are entitled to bring a claim for compensation in the Employment Tribunal.
For a FREE assessment of your case just contact one of our employment team.
PLEASE NOTE: VERY STRICT TIME LIMITS APPLY TO DISMISSAL CLAIMS. YOU HAVE ONLY 3 MONTHS FROM DISMISSAL TO LODGE A CLAIM, SO DON'T DELAY IN SPEAKING TO US.
If you have been made redundant we can assess if it was a genuine redundancy situation, consider whether your employer followed the correct consultation and selection procedures and calculate the amount of redundancy payment that you are entitled to receive. If appropriate we can also tell you if you can bring a claim for unfair dismissal in the Employment Tribunal.
For a FREE case assessment simply contact one of our employment team.
Compromise Agreements are often entered into upon the termination of an employee's employment. The Compromise Agreement sets out the terms upon which the employee and the employer are to part company. It is important that the parties take specialist legal advice before entering into a Compromise Agreement. The employer normally pays the employee's legal costs so in most cases our services are free.
Contract of employment
Employees' are legally entitled to written terms and conditions of employment. We can advise on the terms of a new contract or negotiate with your employer if they seek to change materially your existing terms.
It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee on the grounds of age, sex, race, disability, religion and sexual orientation. Employment Tribunals are dealing with an increasing numbers of discrimination cases and, unlike unfair dismissal claims, there is no upper limit on the compensation that can be awarded.
If you feel that you have been unlawfully treated by your employer our employment solicitors can advise on your rights and assess whether you can bring a claim in the Employment tribunal. Just contact a member of our team for a FREE case assessment
