Problems at Work - acting for the employee

Helping you get a fair deal when things go wrong

Did you know that an employer is responsible for how employees behave in the workplace? Or that you can claim constructive dismissal if your employer fails to protect you from bullying? There are many things in employment that employees perhaps don’t realise.

The working environment is more regulated than it has ever been and the law covers almost every imaginable area from discrimination and sexual harassment to health and safety, paternity rights, working hours and pay.

Employers don’t always get it right, despite employees expecting them to. They may not know what the law is, or they may try to avoid meeting their legal obligations. When a workplace dispute arises, employees need the very best legal advice if they are not to lose out.

Our expert employment lawyers have been looking after the interests of working people for over a hundred years. They know the law inside out and have won cases for employees against some of the UK’s biggest corporate law firms acting for some of the UK’s largest employers.

Whether you’re worried about being bullied or think you were discriminated against when a promotion opportunity came up, we think you’ll be impressed by our energy and commitment.
