Employment

Our specialist Employment Team provides support and guidance to individuals dealing with work place issues as well as representation in the Industrial Tribunal & Fair Employment Tribunal. We pride ourselves on delivering cost effective advice and practical assistance on all aspects of employment law.  Additionaly, we assist employees in using their legal expenses policy for costs involved in bringing a claim to the Tribunal.  Some policies, such as household insurance, bank accounts and life insurance provide legal expenses cover to fund employment law cases.  Normally Legal Expenses Insurance covers all claims that individuals can bring to the Tribunal.

Our team recognise that litigation is not always the solution and take the time to understand your concerns so that we can identify the best outcome for you.

 

Recognised as a leader in this field by the Legal 500 and Chambers UK, Department Head Jan Cunningham is praised for understanding the 'nuances of a given situation and his work turnaround is very quick'  (Chambers 2019).
