How to obtain support with employment law


Anyone that works for a business has rights that are protected under employment law. You have the right, for instance, to be treated without discrimination by your employer, and other statutory rights such as structured breaks during your working day and paid leave if you become pregnant. If you think any of your employment rights are being compromised, you can get employment law support from a specialised lawyer.

Initially, the employment law support that a lawyer can offer you will usually take the form of an assessment of the issue you have with your employer. Your lawyer can apply all current employment law and if this has been broken, give you details of your options.

Employment law support becomes even more vital if you decide to take your employer to an employment tribunal. As these tribunals operate in some ways like a court of law, employment law support from a legal professional is crucial to ensure you have a fair hearing.

Compromise agreements

Your employer may offer you what is called a compromise agreement. These agreements are often used to resolve a dispute. You will be offered a sum of money in exchange for taking no further action against your employer. And as compromise agreements must be carefully worded, as they can only relate to the dispute you are involved in, support from a lawyer will ensure any agreement you are offered is legal and in your best interest.

Employment law support is available in your area from a number of specialist lawyers that often deal exclusively with employment law. Contact Law can put you in touch with a recommended lawyer in your location that can deliver detailed and professional support throughout your case.
