Employees

We stay on top of changing employment law so that you don’t have to.


Employment LawEmployment law is complicated. It also keeps changing, which often leads to confusion about where you stand legally. Our team, led by Justin Sadler, makes things clear. We provide advice for both employers and employees, which means you benefit from our experience in representing either side of an employment dispute.

Making a complaint

Many employment claims fail because people leave it too late. For example, if your employer changes part of your job without asking you, they are entitled to assume you have accepted the changes if you do not make an official complaint within a reasonable period of time. For other employment-related claims, such as harassment, discrimination and unfair dismissal, there is a limit of three months less one day from the date of the last event complained of.

Worrying about how a complaint might affect your future employment prospects should not stop you being treated fairly. Our experience is that most complaints are resolved by discussions between the employee and the employer. Following advice from us, many of our clients have then carried out their own negotiations.

Of course, if you need further advice, we can provide you with help and assistance throughout the negotiations, disciplinary or grievance process. We also offer representation, support and guidance for bringing a claim at the employment tribunal and subsequent enforcement of any judgment made in your favour.

We have experience in the following areas of employment law:

  • Contracts of employment
  • Discrimination
  • Disciplinary matters
  • Grievances and Constructive Dismissal
  • Harassment
  • Flexible working requests
  • Minimum Wage
  • Non payment of bonuses

  • Pregnancy-related issues
  • Redundancy
  • Settlement agreements
  • Sick leave
  • Stress
  • Staff handbooks
  • Termination of employment
  • TUPE transfers of employees
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Working Time Regulations
  • Whistleblowing
