If you’ve been mistreated at work it’s hard to know how to proceed. Your job puts meals on the table but you don’t need the stress of being mistreated. A thought process many of us have is that if we try to resolve the situation we may only get into an even worse situation.
If you need to take legal action against your employer then BMS Solicitors are on hand every step of the way. Firstly we will review your case to determine whether you’ve suffered unfair dismissal. If this is the case, then we can engage with your employer to secure compensation or reinstatement.
In many unfair dismissal cases, clients don’t have to go through the lengthy process of bringing an Employment Tribunal Claim.
We can advise you on a Settlement Agreement if you’ve agreed a termination package with your employer.
Types of Cases We Handle
Settlement Agreements or Compromise Agreements.
If you’ve been offered a settlement or compromise agreement then we can make sure that it protects your rights
Unfair or wrongful dismissal.
If there was nothing wrong with your performance but you were fired you may have an unfair dismissal case. You cannot be dismissed for reasons such as being pregnant, being part-time, being in a trade union, insisting that you earn the national minimum wage, or protecting yourself from hazards and imminent danger.
If you’re planning to leave your job because of your employer’s behaviour then call us first. You may have a case for constructive dismissal, but you need to go about it in the right way.
Discrimination at work.
Employers are prohibited from discriminating unfairly against you when making decisions about hiring, promoting, demoting, firing, training, providing benefits and more. For example, you cannot be harassed in relation to your sex or gender, race or nationality, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age. There’s a number of legal options available if you act quickly.
Transfer of Undertakings.
If the business you work for has been sold or merged, your employment contract could be protected under TUPE Legislation.
