Employment Law Solicitors in Cheshire
Posted on 8th January 2021 at 18:06
While many businesses treat their employees well, there are others that are not so charitable. In the UK, we have a range of employment law that is designed to protect us while at work and keep a balance between employer and employee.
At DSM Legal Solicitors, our aim is to help you navigate any employment law problem and resolve your issues, including helping you with employment tribunals, unfair dismissal claims and discrimination at work. Based in Cheshire, our team is highly qualified in all areas of employment law and you can always expect a sympathetic ear combined with a straight talking approach.
Here are just some of the areas that we can help you with:
Discrimination at work: It’s unlawful to discriminate against someone based on their gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion or belief, disability or because they are pregnant. Discrimination can manifest in a variety of ways including excluding an individual from certain opportunities or paying them less than someone doing a similar job.
Unfair dismissal: Losing your job suddenly can be extremely stressful and you may think there is nowhere you can turn to. Whether you think you have been unfairly selected for redundancy or dismissed for no reason at all, you really need to talk to a qualified solicitor who will be able to guide you through the options.
Constructive dismissal: Some employers will create circumstances that essentially force an employee to resign or leave which can be construed as constructive dismissal. This can include suddenly reducing wages, changing job content or status or failing to provide the right tools and safe environment to carry out certain work.
Bullying and harassment at work: It’s not unusual for employees at work to be bullied, either by a senior member of staff or co-workers and many businesses have processes in place to help stop this from happening. If you are victim of harassment, however, it can have a huge impact on your life and cause all sorts of emotional and health problems.
Employment tribunals: These can be daunting for your average employee and putting together a case against your employer can be complicated. Getting the assistance of a good legal team is important if you want to prepare properly.
There are plenty of other reasons why you may want to hire the services of a qualified team of employment law solicitors in Cheshire. If you’ve accepted redundancy, for example, you may want to agree your settlement agreement with the help of a good legal team. You might be attending a grievance or disciplinary hearing and want clear advice of where you stand and what your rights are as an employee.
There are often strict time limits on claiming for things like unfair dismissal – you need to make your claim within three months of the effective date of termination. That means it’s vital, if you think you have a case, to contact someone for legal advice and talk through your situation with a qualified professional.
At DSM Legal Solicitors in Cheshire, you can access some of the best employment law advice in the region. Contact our friendly, professional team today to find out more on 01925 937070.
