Discrimination disputes in the workplace

Workplace disputes can arise from all types of discrimination. UK law accounts for any instance of discrimination based on age, race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, or disability. We understand how upsetting and frustrating experience of discrimination can be, so it’s always a good idea to speak to one of our experienced team of specialist employment law solicitors as soon as you can.

We can assist you at every stage of the process, clearly advising you of your rights, and providing in-depth guidance on all the options available to you, up to and including making a claim against your employer.

Disputes around harassment and bullying at work

Workplace disputes around harassment can take a severe toll on your emotional and mental health, and it’s quite common to feel trapped or helpless, especially if anyone involved in the bullying is in a senior position or otherwise valuable to the company.

Here at Farleys, our specialist solicitors have dealt extensively with cases involving sexual harassment, racial harassment and other forms of workplace bullying. We can support you with straightforward legal advice that’s free from unnecessary jargon, so that you can understand all the available ways you have to proceed with your case – and what might be the best option to help you resolve the situation.

Resolving disputes by Employment Tribunal

An Employment Tribunal provides a last-resort means to solve employment disputes, and is empowered to deal with cases involving a wide range of issues, including grievances, discrimination, disciplinary issues, and unfair dismissal claims. An Employment Tribunal is not as formal as a court, but its judgements are legally binding, so it is only available once all other means of resolution have been exhausted.

Here at Farleys, our experience with Employment Tribunals allows us to give you detailed guidance and straightforward legal advice to help you understand every aspect of the Employment Tribunals process, so that you can decide whether pursuing one is in your best interests.

Disputes around disciplinary, appeals and dismissal

All employers are required by law to have a clear set of policies and procedures that lay out how the company will respond to disciplinary matters or disputes, including those focused around appeals and dismissal. If there are any ambiguities or unfairness in these, it can often give rise to disputes.

Here at Farleys Solicitors, our employment law solicitors routinely handle disciplinary, appeals and dismissals cases, putting us in an excellent position to help you understand the full implications of your company’s policy, and how it relates to your case. With detailed legal advice and guidance, our goal is to make sure you have everything you need to make an informed decision about how best to proceed.

Disputes and employee grievance procedures

When a dispute arises between you and your employer, the best first step is normally to arrange an informal meeting to discuss the issue. If you’re not able to resolve the matter during this informal meeting, you may decide to raise an official grievance.

Our employment law solicitors have a wealth of experience and in-depth expertise in this complex area of law, and we’re able to lay everything out in simple, jargon-free terms, so that you can fully understand all the options and potential outcomes available to you.

Breach of employment contract disputes

A significant number of the employment disputes we deal with here at Farleys arise from breaches of contract. If your employer has made changes to your job that you did not accept, then it could be classed as a breach of contract. Some common examples of breach of contract cases include abrupt changes to working hours, or failure to pay wages.

We’re here to help. You can count on our employment law solicitors here at Farleys to answer any questions you might have, highlight any relevant legislation, and give you detailed legal advice that’s tailored to your individual circumstances.

Redundancy, Lay Off and Short-Time Working disputes

The nature of redundancy law in the UK is significantly complex, and sets strict standards for employers to follow. If you feel that your own employer has failed to appropriately follow these standards in your own case, you may be able to bring a claim.

At Farleys Solicitors, we’re here to help with these disputes. Our knowledgable experts can support you with straightforward legal advice that clearly lays out all the available ways in which you can proceed – as well as their potential outcomes – making it easier to decide which course of action is in your best interests.

  • Accountancy and Actuarial Discipline Board
