Disciplinary, appeals and dismissal
We handle a range of employment law cases, including disciplinary, appeals, and dismissal cases.
Generally, employers outline any policies relating to disciplinary, appeals, and dismissal procedures within the employment contract (or employee handbook). If you can’t find details of company policies or procedures that relates to these areas, it’s important to request the information from your employer directly, as soon as you can. It’s important to understand exactly how the policy affects you before you enter into any disciplinary, appeal, or dismissal proceedings.
Our experienced, knowledgeable team of solicitors can help you understand what these policies mean from a legal perspective. We’ll give you clear, actionable legal advice and guidance on what the next steps are, based on your situation and type of employment dispute.
Discrimination in the workplace
Discrimination in the workplace is a type of employment dispute that can take a number of forms. Here at Farleys, we understand how distressing, sensitive, and complex any form of discrimination can be in the workplace. We want you to know that you aren’t alone, and that there are laws in place to protect you.
You may have experienced bullying or discrimination in your workplace on the basis of your age, race, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, or disability. The law explicitly covers each of these types of discrimination, and if it’s something you’re currently experiencing, it’s always best to speak with a solicitor or legal advisor as soon as possible.
At Farleys, our experienced team of employment law solicitors are specialists in their field, so we can assist you at every step of the process. This means we’ll be able to clearly advise you on your rights, and provide advice on the best course of action according to your circumstances (including helping you make a claim against your employer).
Employment Tribunals are a ‘last resort’ means to resolve an employment dispute between you and your employer. Employment Tribunal applications can only be submitted once all other means of resolution with your employer have been exhausted.
The purpose of an Employment Tribunal is to settle a range of employment disputes, including grievances, discrimination, disciplinary issues, or unfair dismissal claims. Before attending, it’s worth bearing in mind that that the decisions made by an Employment Tribunal are legally binding, similar to the Court.
An application for an Employment Tribunal claim must be submitted within three months from the date your employment ended, or within three months from the date of the incident.
If you need guidance, advice, or representation, our team of legal experts can help you with every stage of the dispute process – even before you decide to make an application to the Employment Tribunal. Get in touch today to find out how we can help!
