We offer advice on all matters appertaining to the employment relationship.
Claims can arise from the very first job advertisement lodged by the employer through to interview, problems within the relationship once employed, lack of fairness in relation to a termination and issues in relation to payment.
We can help you with all and any problems you may have in relation to that employment relationship. Cases which we have dealt with over the last 12 months include:
- Boardroom disputes
- Breach of contract
- Bullying and harassment
- Changes to contract of employment and terms of employment
- Claims arising out of tupe transfers
- Directors services agreements
- Disciplinary and grievance issues
- Employed / self employed
- Equal Opportunities
- Faulty references
- GDPR (data protection)
- Hiring / firing
- Insolvency of an employer
- Long-term and short-term sickness absence
- Maternity and Paternity Rights
- Minimum Wage Claims
- Restrictive covenants
- Settlement agreements
- Unfair dismissal
- Unlawful deductions from wages
- Whilstle blowing and public interest disclosure
We regularly appear in the Employment Tribunal on behalf of or clients and deal with settlement agreements where an employer acknowledges that it may have got it wrong. Your employer would normally pay our costs in relation to a settlement agreement. Your settlement agreement will need signing off in front of a solicitor to ensure that it validly protects both parties moving forward. We also deal with mediation within the workplace and general advice as to how to obtain the best possible result.
If you feel that you have a problem arising out of an employment relationship then please give us a call. We will give you a free initial appraisal over the phone. If we feel that you have a case worth taking forward then we will invite you into the office in order to discuss this with us. We can offer a fixed fee at this stage so that there will be no nasty surprises.
Please note that generally you have three months less a day to bring a claim to the ET and should you fail to do so within time then you lose your right to claim. There are very limited circumstances where you may still be able to take the matter forward. As pre-curser to make a claim in the Tribunal you have to obtain a certificate from ACAS stating that they have tried to mediate and negotiate a settlement between you and your employer. Without that certificate you will not be able to move forward. Further information in relation to this can be obtained from us.
