Employees

With businesses constantly looking to find ways to cut costs, you can all too easily find yourself suddenly in the firing line.

If you’re facing redundancy or dismissal from your employment, our specialist solicitors can advise and help – especially in cases where it’s unfair or wrongful. You can also call on our experience of handling claims that arise from many kinds of discrimination – including gender, race, religious beliefs, disability, age and sexual orientation.

We can usually act on a no win, no fee basis. This is a way of minimising any risk to you in bringing a claim. It means you only have to pay us a percentage of your damages if your claim is successful.

How about if you’re thinking about leaving your current employer? Your contract may contain clauses that are often called restrictive covenants. They’re designed to prevent you from starting up your own business or working for a competitor for a certain time. We can advise you whether they’re enforceable and help you manage them, either before or after you’ve left your job.

Then again, your employer might ask you to sign a Sompromise Agreement (formerly a Compromise Agreement) – a settlement document that you have to seek legal advice on. We can meet with you at short notice and advise you for a fixed fee.

Or maybe you’d just like to sit down with one of our solicitors over a cup of tea to discuss your employment rights generally. Again we’re more than happy to do so for a fixed fee.
