Employment disputes

Our large experienced team of over 30 employment lawyers will provide you with practical legal advice if you have a dispute with your employer.

Fixed fees for making an employment tribunal claim

Most employment claims come about because of non-payment of wages or being dismissed unfairly. However, employment claims may also arise due to poor treatment because of a person’s race, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation or other protected characteristic.

Employment law is a rapidly changing area of legislation and few people are aware of all their rights at work. This is why you need a specialist employment lawyer to advise you when things go wrong.

My employment team has 25 experts who handle a variety of employment cases throughout England and Wales.
