Employment Law for Employees

Expert advice when you need it from our friendly and approachable team

We understand that having any issue with your employer whether during employment or after your employment has ended can be a stressful and emotional time.

It is often difficult to know where to turn for help and advice and going to see a solicitor can be daunting to the most confident of people.

Our employment solicitors pride themselves on being approachable, friendly and not making presumptions. We always ask you what you want to achieve before any action is taken, it is vitally important that we understand what you want to achieve and explain to you whether and how this can be done. Everything you tell us is confidential and will not go any further unless you want it to.

We can offer you advice on how to avoid employment tribunal proceedings by using the grievance procedure correctly or resolving the matter by way of settlement negotiations. This may include entering into a Settlement Agreement or ACAS pre-claim conciliation.  

Quite often our Employment Team can resolve employment issues by discussing them with your employer or past employer at an early stage. This may mean the difference between you staying at work or leaving your job, and also saving you money in legal costs.

If the matter does end up at an Employment Tribunal Hearing you can be assured that our experience will guarantee that you get the best possible outcome.
