Advice for Employees
Are you being asked to leave your employment and have you been requested to sign a Compromise Agreement? We can check this for you to ensure you’re not waiving any of your rights unnecessarily. Contact us for a free discussion of your situation and our fixed rates for advising on standard Agreements.
Has your employer told you the reason for this in writing? Have they invited you to a meeting to discuss the issues? Were you told all of the issues in advance and allowed to take a colleague with you? In most cases the employer must do all of the above before they can dismiss or discipline fairly. If the complaint is about your behaviour the employer must conduct a reasonable investigation and establish grounds for any action against you. If the complaint is about your abilities then the employer must give you a reasonable opportunity to improve. Contact us for further details and a free 15 minute telephone consultation.
Workers are protected from discrimination on grounds of sex, race, gender, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, religious belief or age. Your employer is liable for the abuse carried out by other employees. The legislation exists to protect you. Contact us for further details and a free 15 minute telephone consultation.
Not able to comply with the demands your boss makes? Talk to us for honest advice about indirect discrimination.
Put your grievance in writing. Your employer will have to deal with the issue and invite you to a meeting to discuss it. If this does not resolve the issue, contact us for further advice. You may have a claim at an Employment Tribunal.
If you are being forced out, then think carefully before resigning. You will need to put your complaint in writing 28 days before issuing a claim. This type of claim is called 'constructive dismissal' and is often hard to prove.
You are entitled to keep the same terms and conditions offered by your old employer. You do not have to accept new terms. Contact us for further advice.
Act quickly, in most cases you must make your claim within 3 months of the job ending or the action complained about occurring. Contact us for advice on how this time limit can be extended. Before you make your claim, make sure that you have covered all possible grounds and that you know how to substantiate your claim.
