Employment Employee

We provide a full range of employment law services

Bearing in mind the amount of time that most people spend at work these days we understand how stressful it can be if things are not going well in their job.

Over the years we have successfully advised a large number of employees from senior management downwards across a wide range of business and industry sectors. Whether you:

  • Are thinking of accepting a job offer and need help negotiating the terms
  • Are in employment but are unhappy with the way you are being treated or feel you are being discriminated against
  • Have been unfairly dismissed or been made redundant
  • Have acted as a whistle blower and are now suffering the consequences
  • Have any other employment worries

Employment law is complicated and you need a dedicated expert on your side. We will provide clear, practical, sympathetic advice as to what your options are and which one is likely to be the best one for you.

We understand that losing your job or even being threatened with dismissal can be a very worrying experience. We have many years’ experience of acting for employees in employment tribunal claims for unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal, breach of contract and discrimination. Whilst we are always prepared to take things to a final hearing where it is in your interests to do so we will always explore other methods of settling the dispute ‘out of court’ if that seems the better option for you.

To speak to an expert employment lawyer who can help with any employment related issue please call, email or request a call back.
