Employment law in Brighton


Brighton, in East Sussex, is one of the UK’s most popular coastal towns. As well as being a tourist attraction the town also has a substantial business-conference industry, regularly hosting the annual conferences for the Liberal Democrats, the Labour Party, the Conservative Party and the Trade Union Congress. Many international employers are based in Brighton and naturally this means there is a lot of employment law practised on a daily basis in Brighton. However, the town doesn’t have its own employment tribunal and employment law cases in Brighton are actually filed with the Southampton employment tribunal which can be found at Marsh Lane, Southampton, SO14 and can be contacted on 02380 716 400.

Employment law is an interesting and varied area of the law, and Brighton’s employment lawyers have to be aware of several statutes that are applicable to this field including: the Equal Pay Act 1970, the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, the Race Relations Act 1976, the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, the Employment Rights Act 1996, the National Minimum wage Act 1998, the Equality Act 2006 and the Employment Act 2008. These are further backed up by statutory instruments such as the Employment Tribunals Extension of Jurisdiction (England and Wales) Order 1994, Working Time Regulations 1998, Maternity and Parental Leave Regulations 1999, Flexible Working (Eligibility, Complaints and Remedies) Regulations 2002, Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003 and the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
