Employment Law Lawyers
Here at ‘Employment-Law-Lawyer’ we have extensive expertise in assisting clients who have various employment law problems. We represent clients in the Employment Tribunals, the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the County Courts, and advise clients on matters of employment law policy and practice, to avoid disputes arising in the first place.
All of our lawyers are experienced employment law barristers who are qualified to practise at all levels of the court and tribunal system within England and Wales, and who appear in the Employment Tribunal (ET) and Employment Appeals Tribunal (EAT) on a regular basis.
Our lawyers are able to promptly turn around instructions relating to paperwork such as requests to advise in writing or to draft claims, responses, contract interpretation and drafting, drafting appellants’ grounds of appeal, or respondents’ answers to appeals. However, prospective clients are encouraged to make contact at an early stage of any dispute or legal proceedings in order to ensure that whichever barrister is instructed is able to provide the most effective assistance.
Our employment law lawyers are experienced advocates who will advance the strengths of a client’s case at all types of hearing held in the employment tribunals and county courts, including, for example:
- Trial as to Liability
- Trial as to Quantum of Compensation or Damages to be Awarded
- Case Management Discussions and Case Management Hearings
- Pre-Hearing Reviews
- Hearings Relating to the Awarding of Costs
- Hearings as to Whether to Order a Deposit to be Paid
- Preliminary and Final Hearings in Appeals
In appropriate cases our lawyers are prepared to assist clients under the Bar Council Public Access scheme whereby clients may make cost effective use of a barrister’s services without instructing an intermediary such as a solicitor or other lawyer, thereby avoiding wasteful duplication of fees that they are required to pay. Not all cases are suitable for a barrister to be instructed without the involvement of a solicitor. However, the majority of cases are, and so members of the public who are interested in exploring this possibility should make contact in the first instance for a no obligation, free discussion about how we may be able to advise or represent you or someone you know.
Our employment law lawyers cater both to employers and to employees / workers encountering issues typically relating to:
- Notice Rights
- Unpaid Wages / Unauthorised Deductions
- The National Minimum Wage
- Bonus Issues / Employee Benefits
- Rights and Liabilities relating to Mergers, Restructuring, In-Sourcing, and Out-Sourcing arising from The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (‘TUPE’)
- Unfair Dismissal
- Prohibited Forms of Discrimination
- Maternity and Paternity Rights
- Time Off Work
- Annual Leave and Other Working Time Rights
- Costs Orders and the making of Deposit Orders
- Employment Contracts – Contract for Services and Contracts of Service
Our Fees: The amount of fees payable to our lawyers for their services depends partly on the seniority of the member, partly on the nature of the proposed instructions (i.e. complexity of the legal or factual issues), and partly on the amount of time that the instructed barrister anticipates will be spent studying case papers or attending on the client, the client’s opposing party, or appearing as the client’s advocate at any particular hearing.
We hope that you will share our belief that our fees are extremely competitive. However, if you wish to explore alternative possibilities of obtaining ‘pro-bono’ (voluntary) assistance whereby you might not be required to pay fees there are various organisations that might be able to provide it to you such as the Free Representation Unit, the Bar Pro Bono Unit, the National Pro Bono Centre, the Law Centres Federation or the Citizen Advice Bureau.
