Employment Law

Employment Law for employees

Losing your job can be highly stressful and knowing that you were wrongly treated by your employer can make the situation worse.

Our employment solicitors have the expertise to represent if you’ve been dismissed from your job through no fault of your own. We will let you know your rights and will negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.

If you think you have a valid employment law claim, it is critical that you take action as soon as possible. In particular make sure you bring your employment law claim within three months of the incident, or three months from when you were dismissed or when your employment ended. These limits are not negotiable and will not be waived.

Not sure if you’ve got a claim? Contact our Employment Solicitors today for FREE initial advice over the phone – remember three months is not a long time.

Employment Law for employers

Employment is perhaps the area of law which is the most subject to change – it is rare many months go by without some new change in employment law rules and regulations. Unless you, or your HR team, are really on top of legal issues you need to be really careful when dealing with employment law issues.

Our advice is simple – never take chances with employment law. There are over 130,000 employment claims made e.g. every year – and in most cases, the employer thought they were doing the right thing.

Make sure you know your position – a FREE initial phone call to one of our employment law team may be all you need to put your mind at rest – and make sure you do the right thing and keep yourself safe from a potentially expensive and time-consuming employment tribunal claim.
