Our specialist employment team will provide you with straightforward advice on the legal position including whether you may have a good case for an Employment Tribunal claim.
What will Waldrons do?
We will listen to you, find out all the circumstances that led to this point and advise you on your options including whether you may have a legal claim. This can involve situations where (1) you are still employed, or (2) your employment has ended but a dispute either led to you being dismissed or has arisen since your employment ended.
Some of the specific areas where we can help include:
- Unfair Dismissal
- Work related stress
- Employment Tribunal Claims
- Employment Contracts
- Restrictive Covenants
- Disciplinary matters
- Unfair Constructive Dismissal (this is where a person feels forced to resign)
How involved will Waldrons be?
Our approach is to be flexible and to be as involved as you want us to be. This can range from providing you with initial one-off advice, providing advice as things progress or fully representing you. We can offer you advice at any stage of a workplace dispute.The decision is yours.
How much will this cost and are there any funding options?
We provide initial advice for £200 + VAT (£240 inclusive) which includes a meeting with a specialist Employment Law Solicitor usually lasting for around an hour and detailed advice confirmed in writing. We will also be able to provide you with realistic costs information based on our initial discussions with you.
Unfortunately the Government no longer provides legal aid for employment disputes but there are alternative options:
We always advise you to check any insurance policies that you have. Home insurance or even car insurance can sometimes include legal cover which may pay for employment disputes.
If you are a member of a union, legal costs may be covered by your union.
We may be able to offer a Damages Based Agreement (a type of ‘no win, no fee’ agreement) if you plan to make a Tribunal claim and we determine that your case is suitable for this type of funding.
Why should I choose Waldrons?
We are aware that workplace disputes can create a very stressful situation for you. Our approach is to be practical and realistic while ensuring that things aren’t dragged out unnecessarily. As a firm we are large enough to have some of the best legal experts in the region but small enough to guarantee that you will be our priority - you’ll never be ‘just another case’ which is why we can guarantee that:
- You will have direct access to a specialist Employment Law Solicitor with a direct dial telephone, a direct email address and the ability to see your solicitor at any of our offices.
- We will be completely clear on costs from Day 1 and we will always discuss funding options with you to ensure that, if you don’t have to pay, you won’t.
