Employment

Two pairs of hands opposite each other on a table

Having problems at work or losing your job can be extremely upsetting. We provide friendly and professional advice to advise you of your rights. Whatever your problem at work, we will be happy to try and help. Here are some of the things we can usually help with:
 
•    Settlement Agreements
•    Workplace bullying
•    Capability procedures
•    Disciplinary investigations and hearings
•    Grievances
•    Workplace Appeals
•    Early Conciliation
•    Unfair dismissal 
•    Redundancy
•    Discrimination 
•    Constructive dismissal (if your employer fundamentally breaches your contract)
•    Restrictive covenants
•    Breach of contract
•    Whistleblowing
•    Your rights when the business you work for is sold.

Early Action

There are short time limits to make Employment Tribunal claims. If you suffer discrimination, the time limit will run out within 3 months of the act of discrimination. If there have been separate acts of discrimination, several 3 month time limits may be running one after another.

Likewise, if you are dismissed and put in an appeal, the time limit runs from dismissal and does not stop because of an appeal. Again, some employers will delay the appeal decision until 3 months runs out. In that situation, a claim could be time barred.

The watchword is to obtain legal advice promptly if you have an Employment Law problem.
