At Forster Dean, we believe that everyone has the right to be respected in the workplace. Everyone has certain employment rights and if these have been violated in some way, getting friendly and helpful legal advice is imperative.
Why You Might Need a Local Employment Law Solicitor
Most of us hope to enjoy our work and go home at the end of each day feeling satisfied that we have contributed and done our job well. Unfortunately, there are a number of ways in which the employer/employee relationship can break down. While many disputes are resolved reasonably amicably, things can sometimes get out of control.
Employees often feel powerless when their employer takes action against them. The truth is that there are legal protections to ensure that your rights are respected in the workplace. If you are having issues and don’t know where you stand, finding a qualified employment law solicitors nearby will certainly help clarify matters and allow you to move forward more positively.
Here are some of the areas that we can help you with at Forster Dean:
- Disciplinary action: If your employer has carried out disciplinary action against you and you feel this is wrong, the legal team at Forster Dean will be able to review your case and explain where you stand.
- Employment tribunals: Most companies try to avoid going to a tribunal but if your case is heading this way you should certainly use the services of a local legal team.
- Workplace discrimination and harassment: It’s surprising the number of workplaces that still discriminate against their staff for a variety of reasons and the amount of a harassment an individual can be subjected to. You shouldn’t suffer this in silence and you have legal rights.
- Unfair dismissal: One of the most common employment law cases that we handle at Forster Dean are those involving unfair dismissal.
There are many other areas of employment law that we can help you with including redundancy, settlement agreements, contract violations, equal pay and issues surrounding holiday or maternity pay.
