Discrimination disputes in the workplace
Workplace disputes can arise from any kind of discrimination, whether it’s based on age, race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, or disability. If you’re involved in a dispute about workplace discrimination, it’s always a good idea to speak to one of our specialist employment law solicitors as soon as you can.
We can provide assistance at every stage of the process, clearly advising you of your rights, and providing helpful guidance on the best course of action according to your specific situation – up to and including helping you to make a claim against your employer.
Disputes around harassment and bullying at work
Workplace disputes around harassment and bullying at work can be exceptionally stressful to deal with. It’s easy to feel trapped in the situation, especially if anyone involved in the bullying is in a senior or otherwise key position within the organisation.
Our specialist solicitors here at Farleys have extensive experience with cases concerning sexual harassment, racial harassment and other forms of bullying within the workplace. We take care to provide friendly and straightforward legal advice with no unnecessary jargon, so you can make the most informed decision of how best to proceed.
Resolving disputes by Employment Tribunal
An Employment Tribunal serves as a last resort means to resolve employment disputes, and are empowered to deal with grievances, discrimination, disciplinary issues, and unfair dismissal claims.
Here at Farleys, our experience with Employment Tribunals allows us to give you detailed guidance and tailored legal advice to help you understand every stage of the Employment Tribunal process, and whether it’s the right choice to help you resolve your dispute.
Disputes around disciplinary, appeals and dismissal
By law, all employers must have a clear set of policies and procedures that detail how the company deals with disciplinary matters, appeals and dismissal. If you feel that any of these details are ambiguous or unfair, it can often give rise to disputes.
Here at Farleys Solicitors, our employment law solicitors routinely handle disciplinary, appeals and dismissal cases, putting us in an excellent position to help you understand the full implications of your company’s policy, and how they affect you. Using this as a basis, we can then provide legal advice and guidance on the steps available to you, based on your individual circumstances.
Disputes and employee grievance procedures
If you’re not able to resolve a dispute with your employer with an informal meeting, you may decide to raise an official grievance.
This is a notably complex area of law, and our employment law solicitors have a wealth of experience and in-depth expertise. This allows us to lay out everything in simple, straightforward terms for you, explaining the potential outcomes so that you can make an informed decision that’s in your best interests.
Breach of employment contract disputes
Breaches of employment contracts are frequent causes for disputes. If your employer has made changes to your job that you did not explicitly accept, it may constitute a breach of contract. Common examples include abrupt changes to working hours, or failure to pay wages.
You can count on our employment law solicitors to answer any questions you may have, highlight any relevant legislation, and give you tailored legal advice to help you achieve a satisfactory outcome to your situation.
Redundancy, Lay Off and Short-Time Working disputes
The nature of redundancy law in the UK is significantly complex, and there are strict standards for employers to follow. If you feel that your own employer has failed to adhere to these standards, you may be able to bring a claim.
At Farleys, we’re here to help. Our experts can provide in-depth legal advice on your dispute with the bare minimum of jargon, helping you to fully understand all your available options – and making it easier to decide how best to proceed.
