Employment law for employees
Employment law is complex and constantly changing. It can therefore be difficult for both employers and employees to understand the rights and obligations that they owe to one another.
Unfortunately, all too often, this results in employees being on the receiving end of poor management decisions which can have serious implications for the employment relationship, and often result in the employee being dismissed.
- contracts of employment
- directors’ service contracts
- settlement agreements (formerly compromise agreements)
- unfair, wrongful or constructive dismissal
- discrimination claims
- pay disputes such as equal pay claims or unlawful deductions.
We make every effort to seek an early settlement of any dispute by way of negotiation and through ACAS, as we recognise that it is in your interests to avoid legal proceedings if possible. However, if settlement cannot be reached we will support your claim every step of the way, from drafting the claim form to representing you at a final hearing in the Employment Tribunal.
Please note that you usually only have 3 months from the date of the act complained of within which to bring a claim against your employer. If you think you may have a claim do not delay in seeking advice.
