Work Life: Legal Advice for Employees

Employment law for individuals

Our employment solicitors can help you during difficult and challenging times in your working life, including workplace disputes and periods of change.

We can conduct the negotiations for exit on your behalf (resulting in a settlement agreement) or support you through a dispute resolution process aimed at reconciliation.

We also provide robust and sensible employment tribunal or court representation. Our costs are transparent and we will discuss with you all the funding options available to you on your first contact with us (and before you commit to a full instruction).

HOW WE HELP YOU

  • What are your objectives? That’s our first question and what we focus on throughout. If required, we can also help you to identify them.
  • Not sure where you stand? We can undertake a full health check of your employment contract to expose undetected areas of risk.

IT’S GOOD TO BEAR IN MIND

  • Addressing potential problems head-on is always easiest and cheapest.
  • Individuals should seek legal expenses insurance before instructing a solicitor.
