Employment Advice

We act for both employees and employers in bringing and defending employment cases in both the Industrial Tribunal and in Civil Courts.  We act for a major trade union in providing its members in all areas of employment law together with collective agreements made between the trade union and the employer. 

As there are strict time limits in respect of lodging industrial tribunal proceedings, in most cases three months, we recommend that clients obtain advice as early as possible after an employment issue arises.  We provide urgent consultations and advise many clients through grievance and disciplinary procedures.  Our employment team have experience in the following type of cases;

- unfair dismissal

- discrimination cases

- TUPE regulations

- provision of services

- protected disclosure (whistle blowing)

- unlawful withholding of salary and working time legislation

- flexible working

The process of employment disputes is very stressful to the parties involved and we provide a personal service to support our client's while giving them objective employment advice in a way that they can understand. 

As employment cases can be very costly given their complexity we recommend that all clients seek to source legal expense insurance which is often provided by their home insurers.
