Work solicitors


We all hope that our workplaces are supportive, pleasant places to work. However, conflicts and issues do arise and can be very stressful. If you are facing issues at work, you may wish to consider consulting specialist work solicitors to ensure that you are properly advised. You may also wish to be represented by work solicitors in any discussions with your work, or in any dispute-resolution processes such as employment tribunals, if it comes to that point.

Some of the issues that arise at work that may benefit from the assistance of experienced work solicitors include: your rights at work under your employment contract and under statute; the commencement and termination of the employment relationship; changes to and breaches of the employment contract; your health and safety at work; facing discrimination in the workplace; pay disputes; conditions of work; flexible working practices; leave issues including maternity and parental leave, and your right to privacy in the workplace.

Particularly niche aspects that work solicitors may be able to assist you with include your right to work in the UK, work permits, and working in the European Union.

By seeking the assistance of work solicitors, you can know what your rights are and how to assert them. You can also ensure that any power imbalance that exists between you and your employer during conflicts is resolved. Consulting a work solicitor does not necessarily mean that you are going to become involved in litigation: a work solicitor can help you to communicate effectively with your employer to avoid the escalation of conflicts.

They may assist you through grievance procedures and with alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, conciliation and arbitration. Where the situation is unable to be resolved by these means, work solicitors can also represent you in employment tribunals.
