Employment Law for Employees

Most people don’t expect to ever need a lawyer to defend them against an employment issue but, unfortunately, circumstances can change and problems can arise.

Our employment law solicitors have years of experience defending employees against the following: 

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Redundancy 
  • Settlement agreements
  • Executive dismissals
  • Departures
  • Discrimination
  • Disciplinary and grievance issues

We will always try to avoid an Employment Tribunal but if it is necessary to go to one then our solicitors will prepare your case to the highest standard and argue your case extensively.

We will walk you through all your options and always manage expectations – from years of experience, we know what is achievable and realistic.
