Legal advice from David Jones, Employment Solicitor based at FDR Law’s office in Warrington Q: Why do I need independent legal advice with a Settlement Agreement? A: A Settlement Agreement is a legal document used to terminate an employment...
Do you believe you’ve been unfairly treated at work? Perhaps you’re facing discrimination from your boss or you think you’ve been unjustly sacked.
Whatever your complaint, our knowledgeable employment lawyers can offer you expert advice on whether you might have a claim. Sometimes disputes can be settled directly with an employer but if this informal approach fails to yield a satisfactory outcome, you may be advised to take your case to an employment tribunal.
Employment tribunal panels usually include an employment law judge and two non-legal business specialists. A tribunal can be used to address a wide number of workplace issues. Both the employer and the employee may use witnesses to provide supporting evidence and after hearing the case, the panel will reach a decision which is legally binding.
At FDR Law, our friendly, skilled solicitors are here to support and guide you throughout the entire process. We will explain how best to present your case and ensure you’re fully prepared for the hearing - supporting you with everything from documentation to obtaining witness statements.
However you decide to proceed, it’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. You only have three months from the date of your dismissal or the date the unfair treatment last occurred to make an application for a tribunal hearing.
