How can we help you?

Our Solicitors have extensive experience addressing a range of employment issues related to dismissals and redundancy. We can assist with unfair dismissal claims, helping employees file a claim if they believe their dismissal violates employment laws. If your case is successful, you may receive compensation or reinstatement.

We can also help with constructive unfair dismissal claims when an employee resigns due to a fundamental breach of employment terms, and wrongful dismissal claims, involving the unlawful termination of an employment contract. Our expert Solicitors have years of experience assisting employees in both of these cases to seek compensation for their losses.

We have expertise in claims involving collective redundancies and we can assist employees in asserting that their employer failed to comply with legal obligations during mass layoffs. This may involve alleging insufficient consultation and challenging the overall fairness of the redundancies.

Our Solicitors can also handle redundancy/protective award claims arising from an employer’s failure to consult with employees before implementing redundancies. In such cases, former employees may be eligible to seek compensation for the lack of proper consultation.

Our expert Solicitors can offer employment law advice on matters including contracts, settlement agreements, wages and other employment-related issues. We can assist with breach of contract cases, where one party fails to fulfil their contractual obligations, potentially leading to legal actions for damages or corrective measures. Our Solicitors also specialise in reviewing agreements, ensuring legal compliance, clarity, and protection of interests before employees enter into contractual arrangements.

We can offer advice on settlement agreements, which are legally binding documents resolving disputes between employers and employees. These agreements outline terms, often involving financial compensation, in exchange for the employee waiving their right to pursue legal claims. We can review the terms and ensure it is in your best interests to sign the agreement.

We also assess restrictive covenants, which may limit your post-employment work to protect your former employer’s legitimate business interests. We will advise on whether they are enforceable and help you negotiate the terms if they are not in your best interests.

Our employment tribunal Solicitors can assist employees seeking unpaid wages or related entitlements from their employers, either by pursuing legal action or contacting employment tribunals for resolution. We can also provide guidance on performance issues at work if you have been asked to address substandard job performance through strategies like training, feedback, or, in extreme cases, termination.

Our employment law Solicitors can offer comprehensive advice to employees on various matters, including contracts, discrimination, dismissals, and compliance with employment legislation, ensuring legal protection and informed decision-making.

Our Solicitors regularly advocate for employees facing workplace issues, such as discrimination and harassment. Discrimination includes any unfair treatment based on protected characteristics like age, gender, race, or disability. It violates anti-discrimination laws, and we can help victims seek legal remedies.

We also help employees pursue compensation for sexual harassment involving any unwelcome sexual behaviour that creates a hostile working environment.

Our workplace Solicitors regularly assist employees facing issues related to maternity/paternity leave, representing those made redundant or dismissed due to their circumstances.

We also handle cases related to flexible working requests, where employees propose adjustments to their work schedule or location, ensuring employers reasonably consider these requests.

Our employment law Solicitors can address bullying and harassment in the workplace, assisting victims in seeking redress through employers, grievance procedures, or legal action.

Our Solicitors specialising in employment law have extensive experience safeguarding employees’ rights.

This includes addressing issues such as whistleblowing, where individuals disclose information about wrongdoing within an organisation. There are legal protections in place to support whistle-blowers who are exposing misconduct and prevent retaliation.

We assist with TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment) cases, ensuring that employees’ rights are preserved during business transfers, and maintaining their terms and conditions with the new employer.

Our employment Solicitors also handle deduction claims, helping employees challenge unauthorised or unfair wage deductions through employment tribunals or legal avenues.
