Employment problems

As an employee, we expect our employers to have our best interests at heart. However, more and more people are taking their employers to Employment Tribunals and the number of complaints continues to rise every year.

At Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall we understand how stressful a problem at work can be and our experienced, dedicated employment lawyers are keen to help.

They will speak to you in a relaxed and informal way to put you at ease and explain the best way forward in straightforward, jargon-free language.

How can we help?

Our extensively experienced legal team have expert knowledge of all aspects of employment law, from broader matters to highly specialised issues.

We act for both employees and employers so we can anticipate the arguments likely to be raised by the employer. This enables us to fight your case more effectively than less experienced legal advisers.

Examples of the areas our employment solicitors can advise you on include:

  • Compromise agreements
  • Contracts of employment
  • Post-termination restrictions/restrictive covenants
  • Discrimination
  • Grievance and disciplinary disputes
  • Redundancy
  • Maternity rights
  • TUPE
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Whistleblowing
  • Harassment
  • Pension claims

We provide a free 10 minute phone consultation after which we will tell you if we can help you or not. If we can assist, we offer a number of funding options such as:

  • An agreed hourly rate
  • Legal insurance funding
  • No win no fee/contingency funding
