Employment Law for Employees

In the event you experience or anticipate a dispute with your employer, our experienced employment law team can offer legal support to reach a resolution.

Our employment lawyers acknowledge that we spend much of our time at work and so if the employment relationship deteriorates, it can cause immeasurable upset. We look at things practically and aim to resolve issues in a way that is satisfactory to you. Because we work for employers too, we can anticipate or predict the next steps in any given process and can advise and respond accordingly. We avoid unnecessary jargon and only proceed with any given action with your authority.

We offer our personal Employment Law services in Walsall, Sutton Coldfield and Cannock but act for clients national and internationally and can hold meetings virtually.

Our areas of work include:

  • Severance and/or settlement agreements. Both the terms of the agreement and the sums payable are often entirely negotiable. We don’t just advise on the terms and ‘sign it off’. We advise on whether the offer made is fair in the circumstances or whether you should expect more money or fairer terms. We can then negotiate those on your behalf if necessary
