Discrimination at work
Being treated at work differently because of your gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation or because you are pregnant or have a disability is illegal.
If you believe this is happening to you then we will explain your legal rights and then help you make a claim or resolve a disagreement if that is appropriate.
Grievance & Disciplinary Procedures
In the event that there is an issue with your employer or another employee you should in the first instance make enquiries as to whether your employer has a grievance procedure in place. If there is no procedure then the statutory procedure must be followed.
The grievance procedure is a method whereby parties can tend to resolve problems or at least provide a mechanism for an employee to draw their concerns to their employer.
Alternatively, if you are subject to a disciplinary procedure with your employer, for example, due to alleged misconduct or poor performance, it is important that your employer follows a fair procedure.
It is important to know your rights and obligations and we can also advise you in respect of ‘protected conversations’ with your employer.
Unfair treatment at work
Unfair treatment at work can arise in many forms from being bullied or harassed to simply being treated differently from your colleagues.
It is important to act fast if you believe you have been treated unfairly at work. All employers should have a grievance procedure and we can help you understand how to take the process forward.
If you need to understand your legal position then we can assist and can advise initially on a fixed fee basis.
It is unlawful for an employer to make a deduction from a worker’s wages unless the deduction is permitted by statute, the employer’s contract or is agreed beforehand in writing by the worker.
Unlawful deductions claims are important because they enable employees to claim unpaid, or underpaid, wages in the Employment Tribunal while remaining in employment.
For advice and assistance on a fixed fee basis please contact us. We can clarify your situation and will strive to agree a settlement without the need for any formal claim.
