We specialise in employment-related issues and can advise on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious issues, including those relating to all forms of employment related litigation and contract negotiations.
We also have extensive expertise concerning redundancy. We can support you through each step of redundancy in order to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Being made redundant or to be put at risk of redundancy can be extremely stressful, particularly after many years of employment, and we offer an extremely sympathetic service. We are able to advise you on your employment rights, and consider whether the proper procedure is being followed in respect of your redundancy. It may be that your redundancy has arisen as a direct result of the business being transferred – such as a merger or outsourcing, and in that case special rules may apply which protect your employment. We will consider your individual circumstances so as to make sure you obtain the best redundancy package available.
We can assist you in the preparation of Contracts of Employment; advising Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures; defending claims brought for compensation brought by aggrieved employees and preparation of Compromise and Settlement Agreements.
We can advise you upon any proposed Contract of Employment you are considering signing and advise you on grievances with your employer and in the taking of proceedings or appropriate remedies.
Types of Disputes we deal with include the following:
- Unfair Dismissal
- Wrongful Dismissal
- Sex Discrimination
- Racial Discrimination
In appropriate circumstances we can act for you in disputes on a “no win no fee” contingency basis. We can guide you through what is often a difficult time.
Compromise & Settlement Agreements
Very often employers and employees will reach an agreement regarding termination of the employee’s employment with the employer preparing a Settlement or Compromise Agreement. Generally employers are willing to make a contribution towards the employee’s solicitor’s costs of being advised on any such Compromise or Settlement Agreement. We will strive to undertake the work within the costs boundaries permitted by the employee at no additional charge to the employee.
Discrimination at work can manifest itself in various forms, and this is unlawful if the reason for the treatment is related to disability, race, age, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
