Employment

If you have a dispute with your employer, or if you are an employer who is having problems with an employee, the technicalities of employment law mean that it is very easy to make a bad situation worse. We are experts in assisting employers and employees with claims for unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal, unlawful deductions from wages, and all of the different types of discrimination that can occur. The time limits for bringing an employment claim are extremely tight – in many cases you have just three months to start your claim and if you miss that deadline, it can be very difficult to recover the situation. If you want to start or defend an employment claim, talk to one of our experts today who will be able to advise you what you need to do.
