You spend a large proportion of your time at work, so any problems which you experience there will have a significant negative impact on your life. If you are worried or stressed about a situation at work, then you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer. Our employment solicitors will give you the expert advice you need about your contractual and employee rights, so that you can make informed decisions about bringing a claim against your employer.
You can discuss your situation with us in an initial fixed fee meeting, where a member of our employment team will review your claim and advise you of your options. In every case we will advise you of the expected costs of making your claim at the outset.
If you are facing dismissal or redundancy from work, then we can advise you on your employee rights and whether you are entitled to bring a valid claim against your employer. In cases where a Settlement Agreement is offered to you by your employer, it is required that you seek independent legal advice before signing it. Our employment solicitors can discuss your situation with you, ensuring that the settlement accurately reflects your understanding and expectations.
There are a variety of grounds on which it is unlawful for an employer or another colleague to discriminate against you in the workplace: gender, race, religious belief, marital status, sexuality, disability, age and work status. If you believe that you have been the victim of discrimination or harassment in the workplace, then we can help you. We can advise you on your rights as an employee, and give you the information you need to change the situation.
Where possible, we will work to deliver the results you want through focused and determined negotiation and discussion. However, this is not always an effective or appropriate method, in which case we will pursue your claim through an employment tribunal.
In most cases employment related claims must be made within three months, which means seeking expert legal advice as soon as possible is paramount. We will work closely with you to ensure your claims progress quickly and effectively, meeting all deadlines and ensuring you achieve the results you need.
