Discrimination disputes in the workplace
We have a comprehensive set of employment discrimination laws here in the UK, covering all types of discrimination whether it’s based on age, race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion or disability. If you’ve been faced with discrimination at your own workplace, it’s best to speak to one of our specialist employment law solicitors as soon as you can.
We can provide assistance and advice at every stage of the process, so that you’re fully aware of your rights and any legislation that might apply. We can then provide more detailed guidance on the most suitable next steps, with an aim to achieving the most desirable outcome for you.
Disputes around harassment and bullying at work
Harassment and bullying in the workplace can be exceptionally stressful, and take a severe toll on your emotional and mental health. It’s not uncommon to feel trapped and helpless in such situations, especially if the situation involves one or more senior members of staff, or others who hold valuable positions within the company.
If you find yourself in such a situation, we can help you. Our specialist employment solicitors have a wealth of experience in discrimination cases, particularly in cases involving sexual harassment, racial harassment and bullying within the workplace. We’ll always take care to give you honest, straightforward advice about what your best available options are, so you can make the most informed decision about how to proceed.
Resolving disputes by Employment Tribunal
An Employment Tribunal serves as a last-resort means to settle employment disputes, and is capable of making rulings on grievances, discrimination, disciplinary issues, and unfair dismissal claims.
An Employment Tribunal is less formal than a court, but its decisions are legally binding, and can only be pursued once all other available options have been exhausted. Here at Farleys, we can give you extensive guidance and legal advice on every stage of the Employment Tribunal process, helping you to decide whether taking your case to one would be in your best interests.
Disputes around disciplinary, appeals and dismissal
All employers must have, by law, a clear set of policies and procedures outlined in a company handbook that detail how the company will respond to disputes and disciplinary matters, including those around appeals and dismissal.
Our specialist employment solicitors routinely handle a range of disciplinary, appeals and dismissal claims, helping you to fully understand all aspects of your company’s policy, and how they relate to your case. We can then provide detailed legal advice specific to your individual circumstances.
Disputes and employee grievance procedures
When a dispute first arises between you and your employer, one of the most straightforward ways of dealing with it is simply to arrange an informal meeting to try and resolve it. However, if you fail to reach an agreement, you may decide to raise an official grievance.
At Farleys, we’re here to help. Our specialist employment law solicitors will use their years of experience and expertise to help you understand everything you need to about this notably complex area of law – clearly laying out all the available options to advance your case, and their potential outcomes, so you can make an informed decision about how to proceed.
Breach of employment contract disputes
If your employer has made changes to your job that you did not explicitly accept, then it may constitute a breach of contract. Abrupt changes to working hours, or a failure to pay wages on time, are both some common examples of a breach of contract.
Our specialist employment solicitors can help. We can provide details on the relevant legislation that applies to your case, answer any questions you might have, and give you tailored legal advice to help you resolve a breach of contract dispute with your employer.
Redundancy, Lay Off and Short-Time Working disputes
We have a comprehensive system of redundancy laws here in the UK, which set strict standards for employers to follow when making a member of their organisation redundant. If you feel that your own employer has failed to properly observe these rules in your case, you may be able to bring a claim against them.
Our employment law solicitors can support you with clear, in-depth legal advice with a bare minimum of jargon. We can also answer any questions that you might have and highlight the legislation that’s relevant to your case, all with a view towards helping you resolve the case to your satisfaction.
