Employment Law for Employees

Our Legal Services for Employees in Motherwell & Wishaw

Representation at Tribunals

If you think you have been treated unlawfully at work within the past three months, it may be necessary to make a claim to an employment tribunal. The employment tribunal hears nearly all claims about employment law matters, such as unfair dismissal, redundancy, discrimination and unfair deductions from your pay. We understand that making an employment tribunal claim can seem daunting. Our solicitors offer expert advice and support. We will discuss your options and, should a claim be necessary, prepare and present a strong case on your behalf.

Unfair Dismissal & Redundancy

If you think you have been unfairly dismissed, you may be entitled to hold your employer to account by making a claim to an employment tribunal. Dismissal can be unfair for a number reasons, for example, your employer may have breached the terms of your contract (known as wrongful dismissal or constructive dismissal, depending on the circumstances), ended your employment for an unfair reason or by following an unfair procedure (known as unfair dismissal) or dismissed you for a reason that is unacceptable under employment law such as for asserting a statutory right (automatically unfair dismissal). If you suspect your employer has or will unfairly dismiss you, our expert employment law solicitors can help. We will discuss your options and, should a claim be necessary, prepare and present a strong case on your behalf.

Discrimination

All employees are entitled to equal treatment. Discrimination is where an employer treats an employee differently because of one of their personal traits, known in law as protected characteristics. These include age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. If you have been treated differently by your employer within the past three months because you have one of these protected characteristics, please contact us. You may be entitled to raise a claim in the employment tribunal against your employer.

Settlement Agreements

If your employer wants to resolve a workplace dispute they are having with you or want to end your employment contract, they may offer you a settlement agreement. Formerly known as a compromise agreement, this a legally binding contract whereby you, as an employee, waive your right to make a claim to an employment tribunal or court against your employer, normally in return for some level of compensation. It is a legal requirement for all employees to get independent legal advice before entering into a settlement agreement. Our expert employment law solicitors will ensure the terms of a settlement agreement is right for you and reflects your rights.
