Employment Law for you, the employee

We’re Specialist Employment Solicitors & We’re On Your Side

We’re here to help you with any employment problem or issue you might have, including but not limited to:

  • Redundancy – information & help with calculating redundancy pay, statutory redundancy packages & redundancy notice periods
  • Unfair Dismissal
  • Disciplinary procedures
  • Grievance procedures
  • Unlawful Discrimination
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Breach of Contract
  • Holidays and working time
  • Rights to time off work
  • Tax


We aim to ensure that you know exactly where you stand legally and what your options are, from the day you get in touch with us.

In minor or straightforward matters, we aim to empower you at the very first meeting to go on to handle your own situation directly and thus achieve substantial cost savings.

Our clients generally continue to seek our advice regarding specific areas of employment law as the matter unfolds. We’re always pleased to assist clients on an ‘as need’ basis.

With more complicated matters, we will assist you throughout the internal grievance, disciplinary, capability, redundancy, retirement or other procedure.

Subject to your instructions, our intention is to provide a speedy resolution, to your satisfaction, at an early stage.

Where resolution is impossible, we can handle the matter right through to its conclusion at the Employment Tribunal. For appearances before the Employment Tribunal, we can use either one of our internal solicitor-advocates or a specifically-selected external barrister, depending on the circumstances.


Have you recently found out that you might be made redundant? Concerned over your redundancy notice period? Interested in understanding how much redundancy pay or what kind of redundancy package you may be entitled to?

Get in touch to discuss your situation with us. We can guide you through the redundancy process to ensure that we’ll enable you to negotiate the best redundancy package available from your employer.


Settlement Agreements (formerly known as Compromise Agreements)

A Settlement Agreement is a legally binding contract made between an employer and employee, either towards the end or just after employment has terminated.

They can also be used to resolve an ongoing workplace dispute, for example, a dispute over redundancy pay.

We’ll ensure that you fully understand the rights you’re compromising and whether the compensation payment proposed will be sufficient for such a compromise. If the compensation is insufficient we’ll negotiate directly with the employer to achieve the best result for you.

We can also advise on share sales and options to purchase as well as the tax implications of the contractual and compensatory payments.

You can be sure that we’ll make you fully aware of the ongoing obligations after execution of the agreement, for example restrictions on future employment and confidentiality.

Our Employment solicitors can also assist you in high-value court claims for breach of contract and in defending allegations relating to confidentiality or breach of restrictive covenants.

Why Choose Us?

We can provide a full legal service from the start to conclusion of any employment law matter or can be consulted on any discrete or specific problem at any stage.
