Employment Law for Individuals and Employees

We can provide you with specialist advice on all areas of employment law.

Introduction

We know how important it is to you to keep your job and to have a good working environment.  We can therefore provide you with specialist advice on all areas of employment law such as:-

  • Unfair Dismissal
  • Redundancy
  • Settlement Agreements
  • Bullying and Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Contractual and Pay Disputes
  • Maternity, Paternity and other Rights
  • Transfer of Undertakings (when your Employer is taken over by another business or individual)

Our Approach

Our prime aim is to work in your best interests, which often means trying to prevent a problem with your Employer before it arises, as well as dealing with problems that have already arisen.  We will try and resolve problems with your Employer on your behalf, and failing that we can negotiate with your Employer to try and obtain the best possible terms for your resignation or dismissal.  We take pride in the fact that we have been able to resolve the vast majority of our cases in this way, without the need for Tribunal proceedings.

However if your case cannot be resolved in this way, we can assist you in bringing your claim before an Employment Tribunal (including full representation at the hearing).


Costs

We offer fixed fee appointments, where we can analyse your case and give you advice as to how best to proceed.

In certain circumstances you may have an Insurance Policy which provides legal expenses cover for your matter.  We can advise upon your eligibility for such cover, and often agree with The Insurer to take on your case in accordance with the Terms of Insurance cover.

If you are not covered by an Insurance Policy, we can provide fixed fees so that you can budget for your case accordingly.

For Tribunal claims we can consider your eligibility for a Contingency Fee Agreement – which is a type of No Win No Fee Agreement.
