Take action today

You need to be aware that the law imposes strict time deadlines, so you need to act immediately. Employees only have three months, less one day, from the date of dismissal to begin an Employment Tribunal action, even if they are pursuing an internal appeal.

Our employment lawyers are skilled at negotiating to achieve substantial settlements for our clients. If this is not possible, they will represent their clients when their claims are heard in the Employment Tribunal.

We can help with:

  • Unfair, constructive and wrongful dismissal
  • Maternity / Paternity Pay

  • Redundancy
  • Discrimination
