Discrimination disputes in the workplace
Workplace discrimination can be based on a wide range of factors, encompassing age, race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, or disability. Whatever the precise nature of your dispute, it’s always a good idea to speak to one of our specialist employment law solicitors here at Farleys, as soon as you’re able.
Our expertise allows us to help you at every stage of the process – we can clearly advise you on your rights, and use our in-depth legal knowledge to suggest a course of action which would bring the most desirable outcome for you (up to and including making a claim against your employer).
Disputes around harassment and bullying at work
Dealing with harassment and bullying in the workplace can take a significant toll on your emotional and mental health. It’s not uncommon to feel trapped in the situation, especially if one or more senior members of staff are involved.
Here at Farleys, our own specialist solicitors have a wealth of experience in cases concerning sexual harassment, racial harassment and bullying in the workplace. We make sure to provide you with clear, straightforward advice that’s free from any unnecessary legal jargon, helping you to make the most informed decisions about how best you’d like to proceed.
Resolving disputes by Employment Tribunal
An Employment Tribunal serves as a last resort means to resolve an employment dispute, and can make binding judgements on a range of disputes including grievances, discrimination, disciplinary issues and unfair dismissal claims. An Employment Tribunal is not as formal as a court, but its judgement is final.
At Farleys, we’re able to give you extensive guidance and legal advice that’s specifically tailored to your situation, helping you understand every aspect of the process, and decide whether taking your case to a Tribunal is in your best interests.
Disputes around disciplinary, appeals and dismissal
UK law mandates that all employers have a clear set of policies and procedures to detail how the company responds to disciplinary proceedings, including appeals and dismissal. Clarity is vital for these policies and procedures, as ambiguity can often give rise to disputes.
Our employment law solicitors here at Farleys regularly handle disciplinary, appeals and dismissal cases, and our wealth of in-depth expertise means we can help you understand the full implications of your company’s policy, and how these affect you. This enables us to provide specific legal advice and guidance on the steps available to you, based on your individual circumstances.
Disputes and employee grievance procedures
When a dispute arises between yourself and your employer, the first step towards resolving it should always be to arrange an informal meeting. However, if this is unsuccessful, you may decide to raise an official grievance.
It’s a significantly complex area of law, and our employment law solicitors are here to help you navigate it, with our years of experience and in-depth expertise. We always take care to lay out everything in simple, jargon-free terms, so that you understand all the potential outcomes of the available options, and can make an informed decision that’s in your best interests.
Breach of employment contract disputes
A notable proportion of employment disputes arise from breaches of employment contracts. If your employer has made changes to your job that you did not explicitly accept, this can be classed as a breach of contract. Abrupt changes to working hours or failure to pay wages constitute some of the most common examples of a breach of contract.
At Farleys Solicitors, we’re here to help. We’re able to answer any questions that you might have, highlight the legislation that’s relevant to your case, and give you detailed legal advice that’s tailored to your specific circumstances, ultimately helping you towards a satisfactory outcome.
Redundancy, Lay Off and Short-Time Working disputes
We have a detailed and complex system of redundancy laws here in the UK, and these lay out strict standards for employers to follow. If you feel that your employer has failed to properly adhere to their obligations regarding redundancy, you may be able to bring a claim against them.
Our knowledgeable experts are here to help you with your dispute. Our experience with redundancy law enables us to support you with in-depth legal advice that’s free from unnecessary jargon, making it easy to understand the available options you have in which to proceed, and helping you make the most informed decisions.
