Employment Law

When working relationships break down, it can be very stressful to all concerned. The legislation surrounding employment law is fast changing and complicated. Faradays Solicitors can act for both employers and employees in employment law matters. Below are some of the area of employment law that we deal with, but we also advise on grievance and disciplinaries, discrimination at work, employment contracts and maternity and paternity rights.

Unfair Dismissal Solicitors

If you feel that you have been wrongfully or unfairly dismissed, you should get in touch with us as soon as possible. Taking advice before issuing proceedings will ensure that you have your facts presented in the correct way and will reduce the risk of inconsistencies in your claim. Not all dismissals are unfair, and every case is different. We will go through the facts with you and ascertain whether you have a case. 

Redundancy Solicitors

Redundancies are an inevitable part of modern working life. However, when a redundancy occurs, it can be particularly stressful for those involved. Our employment law solicitors ensure that the redundancy was genuine, that the process was communicated to you in the correct way and they will check that the redundancy calculations are correct and that you will be paid everything you are entitled to.

Breach of Contract Solicitors

An employment contract is a legal agreement between an employer and their employee. If your employer breaks either the expressly stated terms of the contract or the implied terms, then a breach of contract may have occurred, and you will be able to make a claim. If you believe that your employer has breached your contract, contact our employment solicitors to discuss.

Settlement Agreement Solicitors

Settlement agreements are usually proposed by the employer. They are legally binding agreements and once signed, it means that an employee cannot take the employer to tribunal. It is therefore important that you understand what you are agreeing to before you sign a settlement agreement. The employee must take independent advice for a settlement agreement to be valid. We will advise you on whether you have been offered a fair settlement.
