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.
Grievance 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.
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.
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.
