Are you an employee, worker, self-employed contractor, or Employer with a work-related issue?

24 February 2021

Our employment law solicitor, Julie Barry, can advise and assist you regarding all aspects of employment law. We can help if you are facing a dispute at work and need advice or help enforcing your employment rights. Or, as an employer, if you have an issue with a member of staff, we can guide and assist you and help you respond to any claims against you in the employment tribunal.

You may be worried about your income, reputation, career, or the emotional impact of an employment issue. Or you may be worried about the legal obligations placed on you as an employer and resolving matters efficiently. In situations like this, it helps to have someone that you can trust on your side, and we will support you every step of the way.

What Can We Help With?

Our Solicitor can help you at any stage of your employment:

Before you start your job.

We can help you negotiate and review your employment contract, as well as advise on restrictive covenants. Or, to draft a legally compliant employment contract.

Disputes while employed

Including disciplinary and grievance issues. Our team can advise on bullying, harassment, discrimination, and family-friendly rights, whether you are an employee or employer.

Issues with leaving

If your employer has unfairly dismissed you, forced you out, or made you redundant, we can help you negotiate a suitable settlement agreement and severance package. If you wish to consider your options on fairly terminating a member of staff, we can help you stay on the right track.

Issues post-termination

Your employment contract and other documents may contain restrictions on your future activity. We can advise on whether these restrictions are enforceable or assist you if a breach of contract claim is made in the Employment Tribunal.
