We speak your language

We know that when things go wrong in the workplace, it can be stressful and it can be difficult to know how to resolve the problem if your employer is not providing clear advice.  Knowing your rights can empower you to take the right course of action for you, helping protect your best interests.

Based in York and Lincoln and helping clients nationwide, our experienced Employment Law solicitors have the knowledge and expertise to help you deal with any situation you may be facing at work.

From issues involving harassment to questions about your contract and your rights and entitlements if you chose to terminate your employment, our friendly team of employment solicitors can give you clear guidance and practical advice.

What we do and where we specialise

Our team advises on all aspects of the employment relationship beginning with the appointment of staff and the formation of the staff contract and staff handbook. We understand the realities of a working relationship and that difficulties can arise at any point. In this regard, we are there to support you in dealing with those difficulties such as handling of grievances, disciplinaries, managing sickness absence, redundancies and restructures and variation of contracts, as well as various family friendly rights.

Discrimination and harassment
Bullying at work is extremely upsetting and it is unacceptable. If you are being threatened, intimidated or discriminated against because of your age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religion or a disability, we can help you take appropriate action.

Grievances and disciplinary action
Being asked to attend a disciplinary hearing can be worrying if you’re not sure how best to represent yourself. If you are facing this situation, we can provide advice on what to expect and, should you feel the action taken against you is unfair, we can advise options to appeal.

Settlement Agreements
Leaving your job under the terms of a settlement agreement can be stressful. Many of our clients want to conclude the matter with minimum fuss, whilst ensuring they are getting a fair deal. We can guide you through this process, and ensure your interests are protected.

Employment Tribunals
If you are unable to resolve an issue with your employer, we can help you to bring a claim, advising you on your prospects of success and likely compensation, submitting your claim and representing you throughout the proceedings through to negotiating a settlement.

It is important that employees feel they can safely and confidentially report wrongdoing in the workplace and feel confident that this will be taken seriously by the employer. If you have raised a concern at work and have subsequently felt victimised for doing so, we can help.

Enforceability of restrictive covenants
When you choose to leave a job, often your contract will ask you not to set up a business which is in direct competition or to go to a competing employer. We can provide advice on whether this can actually be enforced and what your rights are when you terminate your employment.
