Employment law in Leeds


Employment law in Leeds is designed to ensure that anyone that is taken on by an employer is done so in accordance with all the current employment laws and regulations. Employment law in Leeds, as elsewhere, includes a number of fundamental components that you should be aware of. These components include: 

  • Your contract of employment
  • How grievances and disputes will be handled
  • Your pay, company sick pay rights and the national minimum wage
  • Your right to flexible working if you meet the eligibility criteria
  • Maximum working hours
  • Holidays and time off

Your employer in Leeds must meet all of these criteria if they are to employ you legally in the UK. Employment law in Leeds gives all employees the right to complain to their employer about any issues they have with their employment. You should make a formal complaint via letter as soon as you can. If you do not have the confidence to write this letter, an employment solicitor can help you.

If your grievance is not dealt with to your satisfaction you have the right to take your complaint to an employment tribunal. This is an independent body that acts, in many ways, like a court of law in that a panel at the tribunal includes an employment judge and any evidence you give will be under oath.

You make your initial application for an employment tribunal by completing form ET1, which you can get from your local Citizens Advice Bureau. Their offices in Leeds are at: Westminster Buildings, 31 New York Street.

The employment tribunal offices in Leeds can be found at:

4th Floor
City Exchange
11 Albion Street
Telephone:0113 245 9741

Employment law in Leeds ensures that all employees are treated fairly. It is always advisable to have legal representation when attending an employment tribunal. Your employer will have solicitors to support their case. Employment law in Leeds is well supported with law firms that can professionally handle your employment dispute.
