If you’re a current or recently dismissed employee and believe that your employer has acted in breach of contract, you’re in the right place.
Here at Farleys Solicitors, we can advise you on all matters of employment law including what to do if your employer has made changes to your working conditions, duties, or pay that you did not accept.
As an employee, you can be left in a difficult situation, and it’s very common for employees to fear that making a complaint will cause them to lose their jobs. However, this is why employment law exists: to protect your rights in the workplace.
We recommend you first review your employment contract and employee handbook, then speak to an employment law firm as soon as possible. This is because claims with Employment Tribunals and the Court are time sensitive, and are generally considered to have begun from the date of the incident — not from when you reported it.
Farleys has extensive experience handling breach of contract disputes. We are frequently approached to handle claims for issues around unfair dismissal, discrimination, harassment, unfair deductions from pay, wrongful dismissal, and issues regarding pay.
We’re able to advise our clients through every stage of the legal process and we provide expert representation if your case is brought before the Employment Tribunal or the Court.

You can give us a call on 0845 050 1958, use our chat to be connected with an expert, send us an email, call 0333 331 5294 or visit one of our local offices in Manchester, Blackburn, Preston, Accrington, and Burnley.
What Is Breach of Contract?
A breach of contract is when one party either, the employee or employer, breaks a term outlined in an employment contract. The break or violation may come in the form of an action, request, or verbal change to the employment contract without proper notification or agreement from the other party.
If you believe that your employer has changed the terms of your work, or failed to give you proper notification of a change, or has breached a term specifically outlined in your contract of employment, you should speak to an employment law solicitor at the earliest opportunity!
