What employment issues do Fisher Meredith deal with?

Fisher Meredith deal with a wide variety of employment issues as listed below. If the issue that you are having is not on the list, feel free to get in touch with us as we may still be able to help you.

Employment contract disputes

Contracts should make it easy for both employees and employers to understand their rights and responsibilities. However, occasionally employment contracts can lack clarity or contain clauses that are actually illegal. Employers may also fail to follow procedures that are written into your contract of employment such as not following their disciplinary procedures correctly. Our employment solicitors in Holborn, London can analyse your contract and help you too find issues with the contract or with how contractual procedures have been followed.

Unfair dismissal

If you have been dismissed without your employer following the correct procedures, or you have had to resign due to your employer breaching the terms of your contract, you may be able to claim for unfair dismissal.

Workplace discrimination

No employee should face discrimination at work. All employees and workers are protected at work from discrimination and harassment by the law, and our employment lawyers in London can help you to bring a claim at an employment tribunal against your employer if you have been a victim of workplace discrimination.

Redundancy

Unfortunately, redundancy is becoming more and more common as jobs become less secure. However, redundancy is only allowed for very specific reasons and very strict procedures must be followed by your employer. If you feel that your redundancy was not justified or procedures were not followed then our employment solicitors may be able to help you to bring a claim against your employer.

Settlement agreements for employees

A settlement agreement is an agreement between you and your employer that settles your claim with them without having to go through an employment tribunal. A settlement agreement is not binding until you have taken independent legal advice, this is usually paid by the employer.

Disciplinary and grievance processes

If you are going through a disciplinary or a grievance process, our London based employment solicitors can give you advice and even represent you during the hearings.

Maternity, paternity and other family friendly rights

The UK has strong protections for employees with family including maternity leave, paternity leave and the right to request flexible hours. If you feel that your employer is discriminating against you due to maternity or other family related issues, we can give you advice on taking action against your employer.

Whistleblowing

Whistleblowing can be a daunting experience, but you are protected by law when reporting any illegal activity and your employer must not take any action against you for doing so. However, it is a good idea to get advice from an employment solicitor before whistleblowing to make sure that your complaint will be protected by the law and to make sure that procedures are followed correctly to protect you.
