Employment Law for Employees

Are you being treated fairly at work?

If, for any reason, you think the answer to that question is “no” then we are here to help. Just call 01926 852188 to talk to one of our experienced solicitors. This consultation is free of charge, completely confidential, and comes with no obligations. Not all cases go to tribunal. Only a very small percentage do.  We believe in resolution and dealing with matters on the shortest timescale possible and in the most cost-effective manner. We can advise on all aspects of employment law, including:

  • Discrimination
  • Redundancy
  • Disciplinary proceedings and grievances
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Negotiating your contractual terms or terms of your service agreement
  • Advising on the terms of your settlement agreement
  • Family friendly rights such as maternity, paternity and adoption leave
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Employment tribunals

Have you been offered a settlement agreement?

Employees are sometimes offered a settlement agreement to end their employment in exchange for compensation or other benefits. When a settlement agreement is offered, in order for it to be legally binding, you are required to receive legal advice from either a solicitor or a trade union representative. The cost of this advice is usually met in full by your employer who is directly invoiced for the fees.
