Whatever challenge you are facing at work, we can help. We know that difficulties at work can be all consuming, creating a significant amount of stress. Not only do we provide effective legal advice, but we also offer a sympathetic ear. Like a former client recently said, your case is “more than just a job” to us.
You may be involved in some type of formal action (be it disciplinary, performance, sickness absence or redundancy), have a complaint about a colleague’s behaviour or you may be mid-way through Employment Tribunal proceedings. You may have just been offered a payment to exit from the business.
Come and talk to us.
In the first instance, following an initial chat through our Free Legal Advice Clinic, we will provide free written advice on your case. We guarantee to provide this within 48 hours of your call. Afterwards, we will advise about how we can help you which may be through using one of our schemes mentioned below. For example, this may be through our Guaranteed “No win no fee” Scheme, or our unique Settlement Agreement Scheme. Alternatively, you may have insurance covering your legal fees or you may prefer to pay privately, either by agreeing affordable fixed/capped fees or applying our competitive hourly rates.
Have a question outside of normal business hours? You’ll be able to check the status of your case, and retrieve relevant documents, using our client portal and we’ll also reply to questions during the evening and at weekends.
We can help you with:
- Disciplinary, performance, sickness absence, reorganisation and redundancy processes
- Complaints and grievances that you may have including for example discrimination, whistleblowing and unpaid wages (and many other issues)
- Complaints and grievances that you and several of your colleagues may have including for example the fact you are not receiving national minimum wage, how your holiday pay is being calculated and your employer’s decision to not pay you bonuses (and many other issues)
- The ACAS early conciliation process, which is the process that often needs to be started before bringing claims in the Employment Tribunal
- Negotiating a settlement if you decide that you wish to leave your job
- Bringing Employment Tribunal claims (including advocacy at the Hearing)
- Reviewing and negotiating contracts of employment and service agreements
- Reviewing, advising about and negotiating settlement agreements
