Your employment rights

Employment law can be something of a minefield and on occasion you may benefit from independent legal advice to ensure that your employment rights are not being infringed.

Woodfords Solicitors offer support and advice to employees of all levels, (including senior directors and company executives) on every aspect of the employment relationship including:

  • Reviewing and negotiating employment contracts
  • Raising a grievance with your employer

Redundancy or dismissal for another reason

This is usually a sensitive situation where you are seeking to balance job security with your legitimate rights and it is important to have expert legal advice.

Many international and City executives live in Fulham, Chelsea, Putney and Hammersmith and call upon Woodfords Solicitors for employment law advice and support.

Contract negotiation and review

We frequently carry out an independent review of employment contracts for senior executives and directors. This is particularly important where there are complex performance-related bonus calculations or share incentive schemes, and you do not wish to be left exposed.

Supporting a grievance

A grievance might relate to:

  • Discrimination – based upon sex, race, age or disability
  • Sexual harassment
  • Inequality of pay
  • Bullying or unacceptable working practices
  • Failure to observe your contractual or statutory rights.

Each case is different, so if you feel that you have a legitimate grievance against your employer then you should speak to us as soon as possible.

Redundancy and dismissal

Employers must follow strict procedures when dismissing an employee or making someone redundant. If they fail to do so, then you may have a legitimate claim for unfair dismissal. We are experienced in representing employees in employment tribunal claims for unfair and wrongful dismissal and will guide you through what can otherwise be a complicated and distressing process in order to achieve a satisfactory outcome.

We can also offer advice on redundancy packages offered by employers to ensure that your contractual and statutory rights are complied with.

If you have been offered a compromise agreement as part of your severance package, it is essential that you take independent advice from an employment law solicitor. You may also benefit from our input to negotiations regarding your final payment.
