Employment Law Specialists for Employees in Yorkshire, Cumbria and the North East

Our employment law specialists provide cost effective advice to employees regarding on-going employment concerns or Employment Tribunal claims. 

Our employment law specialists provide cost-effective advice to employees regarding ongoing employment concerns or Employment Tribunal claims.

Our employment specialist solicitors can provide employment law legal advice in the following areas:

      • Termination of Employment and Settlement Agreements

If your employer has suggested you end your employment, they may have proposed that you sign a settlement agreement (previously called a compromise agreement). These agreements are in a format required by law in order to give certainty to both sides. A properly executed agreement prevents you from bringing a claim to an Employment Tribunal and requires you to take independent legal advice, which we regularly provide. Your employer will pay some if not all of your legal fees, depending on the complexity of the terms and the amount of negotiation required. Our employment law solicitors will listen, review the draft agreement and advise you on what the terms mean and whether the offer is fair and reasonable. If further negotiation is required, we will of course deal with this if you would like us to.

      • Employment Tribunal Claims

We offer expert advice on bringing claims in the Employment Tribunal in areas including:

      • Unfair dismissal
      • Constructive or wrongful dismissal
      • Whistleblowing
      • Discrimination
      • Equal pay issues
      • Bullying and harassment
      • Maternity and parental rights
      • TUPE

We can help you decide whether you should bring a claim, negotiate with your employers and act on your behalf, preparing tribunal documents, witness statements, and representation at any hearing.

      • Disciplinaries, Dismissals and Grievances

This area of employment law can be particularly emotionally charged and distressing, especially if a situation has been building in tension for a long period without being properly addressed. We’re here to listen to the issues that you’ve been having at work, discuss with you our opinion on your legal rights and how we can help and talk about how you should engage with your employer either with us communicating on your behalf or advising you in the background. Whether you are facing an investigatory or disciplinary procedure, dismissal from work or have a grievance against a colleague or your employer, we can guide you through your situation. As well as offering sound employment law legal advice, we can offer practical help in preparing for meetings and writing letters.
