Assistance during difficult times. With unemployment rising and economic prospects falling it can be a difficult and uncertain time to be an employee.
We can assist you with all aspects of your employment rights from redundancy to the working hours directive, from discrimination to unfair dismissal. Often a quick consultation can be all you need to help make an informed decision but we are expert at every level of dispute resolution, from negotiation and mediation through to employment tribunals and other litigation.
Employment law is a dynamic area with much legislation and regulation both UK and from the EU constantly being introduced and tested in the courts. It is crucial therefore to use a specialist employment lawyer who is keeping pace with this swift pace of change.
We have specialist experience in helping individuals with employment disputes, including dismissals for redundancy, gross misconduct, performance and illness, as well as whistleblowing and discrimination, whether it be on the grounds of age, sex, disability, race, sexual orientation, religion or belief. We can advise you if you are being treated less favourably as a part-time or fixed-term worker, if you are pregnant or returning from maternity, paternity or adoption leave. We can also advise you if you have a breach of contract claim against your employer, particularly with regard to unpaid wages including bonuses. We have particular experience in dealing with complex and high value claims in the Employment Tribunal, High Court and Court of Appeal.
