London employees and the law


Employment law is one of the most comprehensive areas of law. There are several different areas within employment law which in reality have little to do with each other, but are still grouped together under the same heading. An example of this are the laws related to discrimination and the laws governing work-related injury. The only reason both of these areas are dealt with by employment specialists is because they apply to employees. Since the city of London does not have its own legal autonomy, then by law London employees are offered the same protections as employees from other parts of the country.

The capital is home to over seven million people, and millions more commute into London daily. As such there are thousands of disputes every year in the city which relate to employment law. London employees commonly use employment solicitors to help them bring claims. These specialists are naturally also used by employers as well to represent the opposing side in such disputes.

Under the law, London employees have the right to compensation if they are injured in a work-related activity, if they were inappropriately dismissed or if they were discriminated against. If you feel that you may be entitled to compensation you may benefit from speaking to an employment solicitor. Discussing the relevant facts of your case with an employment professional will allow you to evaluate your claim, and help you decide what your next step should be.
