Employment Disputes

In employment disputes, our employment lawyers will always aim to negotiate and mediate first, rather than pursue aggressive litigation. This helps keeps costs to a minimum and enables our clients to enjoy the commercial benefits of being seen to be a good employer.


Employment Disputes Services


Early advice: Taking advice from a professional employment solicitor at an early stage is the first step to resolving employment disputes before they escalate. Contact us to find out how we can help you at this early stage.


Discrimination, harassment and victimisation claims: These claims need to be handled with appropriate sensitivity, and our employment lawyers can give you guidance on the best way to deal with the situation.


Mediation services: At the early stage of a dispute, mediation is a more constructive, less confrontative way of working, and we will represent you in order to resolve your employment issue in a less aggressive way.


Employment tribunals: Tribunals are stressful for both employees and company representatives, and we’ll guide individuals and businesses through complicated employment tribunals. Contact us to find out more about this service.


Costs awards: We work with clients to obtain and enforce costs awarded against the claimant.


Grievance and disciplinary proceedings: Before an employer embarks on proceedings, they should have all the necessary information in order to ensure that discipline is carried out fairly. Our human resources and employment lawyers will educate your HR representatives and help draw up a procedure.


Dismissal: Our solicitors have experience in a wide range of dismissal cases, and we will guide employers should a dismissal be imminent. We will also advise employees in the event of a perceived unfair dismissal.
