Employment

Most people will require employment law advice at some stage in their life, whether that be at the commencement of employment – during employment – or upon the termination of employment.

Everyone at work is protected by a number of important legal rights. Some rights provide protection against unfair treatment, such as unfair dismissal and discrimination. Other rights are in place to ensure that workers are remunerated fairly and receive benefits should as paid holidays and the right to maternity leave.Whilst most employers aim treat their staff fairly, even in the best-run organisations, things can go wrong.Our Employment Law solicitors – based in Liverpool city centre – are experts in their field and have years of experience of advising clients in relation to their legal rights. If you are considering making an employment tribunal claim we will assess the merits of your case, give you an honest opinion of what you might be likely to achieve and take the necessary steps to reach your desired end result.We will also consider the most suitable way of funding the matter – and where possible – offer to work on a No Win No Fee basis – giving you extra peace of mind.

We understand that losing your job – or ‘getting the sack’ – or ‘being fired’ – can be a very stressful time. Especially when the termination of your contract of employment amounts to an unfair dismissal.


We understand that being made redundant can be a very stressful period and can have serious financial consequences for you and your family.


You have the right not to be discriminated against at work on the grounds of a Protected Characteristic. These include age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.


With the demands of work and family life it can be difficult for working parents to balance all of the competing demands on their time. Your ability to strike the right balance can often depend on how flexible your employer is prepared to be.


The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations (TUPE) 2006 protect your rights on the transfer of a business in which you are employed.


A Settlement agreement – formerly called a Compromise Agreement – is a legally binding contract which can be used to end an employment relationship on agreed terms. The main feature of a Settlement Agreement is that it waives an employee’s right to make a claim to a court or Employment Tribunal.
