Our Employment team has a proud record and has established an excellent reputation that has led to our being instructed in numerous high-profile employment matters.
Our expertise is in part due to our very diverse client base. We act for both employers and employees in all aspects of employment law, and have a unique understanding of the methods and tactics used by both sides. We bring this comprehensive understanding to all of our work. Our balanced view of the issues involved means that our clients always receive confident and clear advice.
For individuals, we offer support and practical advice, detailed explanation of your employment rights and professional guidance to quickly resolve your current situation. For businesses, we provide prompt and efficient services to enable you to manage your employment relationships effectively and in line with your corporate objectives.
When the relationship between the parties becomes contentious, we are able to provide robust and tenacious representation. We act in employment tribunals on a wide range of matters including claims for unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, wrongful selection of redundancy, sex discrimination, race discrimination, disability discrimination, age discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, breach of contract, unlawful deduction of wages, allegations of whistle blowing (protected disclosures) and effective lack of TUPE consultation.
We also act for clients in claims for harassment, negligence, breach of contract and professional disciplinary regulatory matters, including for schoolteachers, doctors and other professionals. We have a particular expertise in acting for social workers and a detailed understanding of the complexities of their working environment.
No matter what your employment-related matter – whether you need advice on a TUPE transfer, drafting of an employment contract or legal assistance to claim unpaid wages — please contact us for a no-obligation initial discussion.
Employment Tribunal claim fees
Employment Tribunal claims can usually be funded privately or through legal expenses insurance under your home insurance policy. Individuals may also have cover under their union membership. However, sometimes we will undertake these claims under a ‘percentage of damages’ (Contingency Fee Arrangement) basis.
Please note that we are always pleased to discuss flexible fee arrangements, including offering capped fees, progressive reduced fees and other funding methods.
Claims which have causes of action in harassment, breach of contract and/or negligence are heard in the county court or high court, and we may be able to offer no-win no-fee arrangements (as these costs are recoverable, unlike employment tribunal costs).
If you have union membership or legal expenses insurance, please remember that you have the right to instruct a solicitor of your choice.
Please call our dedicated Employment Hotline for any advice or information on employment-related matters.
