Advice for Employees

If you're an employee who's having a problem at work, you've come to the right place.

We recognise that a problem at work can quickly become a problem with life. The fear of losing your job or being badly treated by someone in your workplace, can feel overwhelming. So can the news that your job is redundant.

We can definitely help to work out a plan of action with you. We specialise in helping people sort out their workplace issues quickly. Our employment lawyers advise on all sorts of situations from redundancy to discrimination, unfair dismissal to bullying. While each case is different, one common thread is employees’ belief that it is their employer who holds the balance of power. The reality can be very different.

It may be that you need us to advise and fight your corner to address a colleague or boss's behaviour. You may be the victim of discrimation which needs to be addressed and stopped. We have seen many similar cases and will know what the best next step is.

If your job is at risk, we can give you all the information you need to make sure the right processes are being followed.

If they're not and you need our help with that, we can step in for you here too. We can work with you to write the letters you should send to your employer. We’ll advise you on the conversations you should have and the outcomes you should be looking to achieve. We’ll be alongside you, making sure that you are being treated fairly.  

Where you accept that your departure is inevitable, we can make sure you get the compensation package you are legally entitled to, check through your settlement agreement and in some cases may be able to negotiate a better deal for you.

If a case just can't be resolved, we will represent you at the employment tribunal. We know the process, the tactics and the legal arguments, so your case will be prepared and presented as strongly as possible. But we’re also skilled negotiators, so the chances are that we will be able to get a good settlement before the tribunal is in sight whether through negotiation, round-table meeting or mediation.

To discuss your matter, or to know more about the services we offer, please contact Roy Magara on 01865 594265 or you can email roy.magara@hedgeslaw.co.uk.
