Whether it’s rights to pay, leave, health and safety, training, or having your say, we can advise on what the law entitles you to.
If you are dismissed for a reason which is unfair and your employer has not acted reasonably, then you may have a claim for unfair dismissal providing certain criteria are met.
If you and your employer wish to settle matters without proceeding to a tribunal, then a settlement agreement will record your resolution and ensure that you are compensated. The employer will be assured that no further claim will be made.
If you are made redundant then you may be entitled to a redundancy payment. Often your employer will pay this to you, but if they do not and you believe that you are entitled to a redundancy payment, please come and speak to us.
Be it on the grounds of on the grounds of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or disability, your employer should not discriminate against you unless absolutely necessary.
If your employer is making life so difficult for you that you feel forced into resigning, you may have a claim for constructive dismissal.
