Employment Law for Employees

Did you know that the maximum compensation for unfair dismissal is now over £50,000?

Have you been made redundant, unfairly dismissed or forced out by your employer? Strange as it might seem, your rights might not always be as obvious as you might think.

We can advise and explain, in plain, straightforward English, what your rights are and how you can use them to your advantage. We specialise in giving sensible, timely, practical advice when you need it to help you choose the best course of action.

Here at Willett & Co Solicitors we apply our extensive knowledge, skills and experience to help resolve the specific employment issues which you are facing and provide as much or as little help as you require. We recognise that there are various complexities in any employment situation and will analyse the issues and make suitable recommendations to you. Dependent upon the situation, options may involve legal processes or a solution designed to avoid legal conflict e.g. some kind of mediation.

There are usually several routes to finding a solution and we explore these with you before choosing a solution. We aim to ensure that you are comfortable with any specific course of action and that it is the best option to achieve your objectives. If we feel that your objectives are unobtainable or unreasonable, we will say so.

We can offer advice on all employment law issues including:

  • Contracts of employment
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Unfair and wrongful dismissal
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Bringing an internal grievance
  • Discrimination for sex, race, age or disability
  • Disciplinary hearings
  • Flexible and part-time working
  • Maternity and paternity rights
  • Settlement agreements
  • Redundancy
