Employment dispute resolution solicitors

A workplace disagreement can cause stress, lack of productivity, loss of income and damage to your reputation. But no matter how complex or challenging your employment dispute, we can help.

You have rights, regardless of your industry or position within the company, or in fact its size. If these are not being upheld there is a case to answer.

Where possible our aim is to resolve these disputes outside the employment tribunal or high court, but if you need to go through any of the following, we can help:

– Raising a grievance with your employer

– The ACAS pre-claim conciliation process
(you have to go through this to take your claim through to the employment tribunal)

– Employment tribunal

– County court

– High court

Sometimes it is not possible for you to carry on working for your employer following a particularly sensitive case. This is something we try to avoid, but in these situations we can negotiate a severance package that protects your interests and allows you to move forward.

Who are ACAS?

ACAS stands for the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service. It is a government body whose aim is to improve the working life of everyday people through offering advice, training and dispute resolution services.

If you are involved in an employment dispute, it can be beneficial to involve ACAS at an early stage of the dispute to achieve an equitable result for both sides and avoid the time and cost of going to court.

For more information about ACAS, their website can be found here.

What is Employment Law?

It regulates the relationship between employers and employees, governs what each can expect of the other, what each can ask the other to do, and the rights of both.

What are the transfer of undertakings (TUPE)?

The transfer of undertakings regulations make sure employees’ terms and conditions don’t change when a business (or part of one), is transferred to a new employer. Any exclusion or limitation of these terms under a new contract of employment are not valid.
