If you have difficulty at work, you don’t have to face it alone. Whether you simply need initial advice or expert backing at every step, we can help.
We’ve handled just about every kind of employment issue for senior executives, junior employees and everyone in between. We’ll take the time to truly understand your situation and give you clear advice and practical support you can trust.
Our Employment Law team are continuing to support clients remotely amid Covid-19. Appointments are available via video call and by telephone. For all enquiries, please contact us on 01245 223141, via email or through our contact form on site.
We’re particularly skilled at resolving disputes through confidential settlements – but if your case does go to employment tribunal, you’ll have our highly experienced team to represent you. And because we’re partner-led, a senior lawyer will always oversee your case.
Our employment services cover:
- Settlement agreements (formerly known as compromise agreements)
- Unfair and constructive dismissal claims
- Wrongful dismissal claims
- Discrimination claims, including sex and disability
- Bullying and victimisation in the workplace
- Flexible working
- ACAS - Notification and Early Conciliation negotiations
- Disciplinary meetings at work
- Performance issues
- Maternity and paternity rights
- Senior executive exit strategies and severance packages
- Restraint of trade (restrictive covenants)
- Grievance issues.
We care about our clients, and we’ll work hard to get you a successful outcome. We always make sure you’re informed about costs too, so you can keep track. We offer an initial meeting at a fixed fee and offer a variety of funding options which we will talk to you about including exploring whether you have legal expenses insurance that might cover or contribute towards your legal fees.
Settlement agreements made crystal clear
If you’ve been offered a settlement agreement by your employer, it’s important to know where you stand.
You’re legally required to seek advice before you sign – but we’ll do far more than simply ‘tick the box’. Besides talking you through the settlement agreement, we’ll do all we can to make sure you get the severance package you deserve.
It can be a difficult time, but you can count on us to support you at every step. Call us, and we’ll try to see you that same day. The quicker we take action, the sooner you’ll be able to put this stressful situation behind you.
