“Unfair practices at work?”

 

 

“Don’t delay. Contact us quickly with any issue arising at work.  We can advise regarding ways of paying for our services.”

Our team has wide ranging expertise of acting for anyone who has been penalised through unfair practices at work, and we can advise on all areas of individual employment law.

 

 

 

Employment law operates to strict deadlines and in most cases, an employee only has three months from the effective date of dismissal in which to bring a claim. If you are an employee it is important you contact us as quickly as possible if you have concerns about your rights at work. There are various methods of funding a claim, e.g. legal expenses insurance and no win no fee arrangements. The most appropriate will depend upon your individual circumstances and we will discuss this with you.
