Down to earth guidance and a sympathetic ear...
Coping with workplace problems can be a very stressful and lonely experience. For over 19 years, Alison has been advising employees on their rights and offering strategies on how best to protect their position and maximise the chances of a positive outcome. We offer effective advice with affordable fixed or capped fees on all employment law advice.
How we can help:
The Employment Tribunal can hear a wide range of claims to include unpaid holiday pay, a shortfall in wages or unfair dismissal. We will always strive to resolve your problem without reverting to the courts. However, if the best solution is for you to pursue your claim before the Employment Tribunal we can handle the entire process on your behalf, from drafting the claim papers to representing you at the Tribunal.
You can rest assured that your case will be expertly handled.
The threat of losing a job is an incredibly stressful time. We can advise you during that period on whether or not the redundancy process is fair and provide practical advice on how to cope with any consultation meetings.
Crucially, we will examine any financial package offered to ensure you are being paid a fair sum. If the redundancy is unfair then we will be able to raise the necessary Employment Tribunal claim on your behalf.
Discrimination is a vast area of the law and protects employees against discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, disability, age and a whole host of other areas. Employees who find themselves discriminated against have the protection of a wide range of anti discrimination legislation.
These powerful but complex pieces of legislation require employees to take careful advice on their employment rights as early on as possible. Often the issue can be resolved with the employer but, where this is not possible, we can seek compensation by raising the necessary Employment Tribunal claim on your behalf.
Employees can unexpectedly find themselves facing an actual or threatened disciplinary or dismissal process. We can provide strategic and practical advice on how to best protect your position. We can examine the process and advise on its legality. We can provide a clear plan on your next step and advise you on potential outcomes. We can assist with any appeals process and help you prepare your case.

Exit agreements or Settlement Agreements have become increasingly popular in recent years. We have considerable experience in this area and can negotiate on your behalf to achieve the best package. We focus not just on the finances but make sure the terms of the agreement maximise your chances to successfully re enter the job market .
TUPE is arguably the most powerful piece of employment legislation we have. If your employment has transferred from one employer to another through a sale or other event, then you will be protected by this legislation. In the event of a dispute or dismissal, it is important to take early advice on this matter to ensure your pay and other terms of employment are properly protected.
We have considerable experience in advising on and pursuing claims in this complex area of employment law .
