Employment issues such as workplace discrimination, bullying or unfair dismissal can be particularly unpleasant as they often spill over into people’s personal lives. It is an employer’s duty to treat their employees fairly, and if a worker feels they have been treated badly, they may require the advice of an employment lawyer to resolve the situation in their favour. An employment contract should be the basis of any relationship between an employer and employee, and a team of employment law solicitors can provide reliable advice on both drafting those contracts and on what to do when they’re breached.
Our team can also assist you in protecting your rights when you are leaving your employment, whether by virtue of resignation, redundancy or other form of retirement.Contact us
Employment advice for employees
Unfair treatment by an employer should be reported as soon as possible, especially if you feel it is either a breach of contract or contrary to employment law. Prior to signing an employment contract, it is also a good idea to have an employment solicitor look over the details which may help to minimise restrictive covenants such as non-disclosure agreements as well as non-compete and non-solicitation clauses.
Whatever the case, issues of employment rights can be complex, so if an employee feels overwhelmed in an employment dispute, an employment law solicitor will always provide expert advice.
