Employment Law

Our Employment Solicitors have the experience to act for both Employer and Employees alike.

If you are an Employer we would advise that you consult us sooner rather than later especially if you have or foresee a problem with an Employee.  Do not be tempted to take the easy option, which is to do nothing and hope the problem will go away.  This will only later come back and cause you problems which you can avoid if you take action now.

If you are an Employee ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you believe you have been unfairly dismissed?
  • Are you being discriminated against?
  • Re-organised?
  • Being harassed at work?
  • Are you facing redundancy?
  • Are you being laid-off or being asked to take short time working or to sign a different contract of employment?

If so our Employment lawyers can help you with all of these problems and provide you with advice to receive the best outcome for you.  We would strongly recommend that if you wish to bring a claim against your Employer seek our advice at the earliest available opportunity.  There are strict time limits after which you cannot bring a claim, so act quickly.

If you have agreed to have your employment brought to an end or have reached an agreement with your Employer already then your Employer may ask you to sign a document called a Compromise Agreement or a Settlement Agreement.  You are required to take advice on such documents before you sign them. We can draft Compromise / Settlement Agreements for Employers and we can also advise Employees on whether or not to sign them.

Contact us today for a general chat to determine how best to progress your case.  We offer payment plans and fixed fees where possible to ensure that you can access the legal services you need. Please click the link below for further information regarding our costs.
