Employment Law

Alasdair Bryce has considerable experience in providing advice and representation in relation to the full range of employment law matters which can affect individuals and businesses.

As an employer it is often all too easy to get into difficulties while trying to do the right thing. Whilst from an employee’s point of view being faced with a disciplinary complaint or being on the receiving end of bullying or discrimination can seem impossible to deal with.

Being involved in an employment dispute is a stressful situation but with early advice and guidance we aim to help you achieve a solution that gets you to where you want to be. Disputes cannot always be resolved and where necessary claims may have to be taken to the Employment Tribunal.

Time limits for bringing and defending claims before the Employment Tribunal are extremely tight and great care must be taken to ensure that claims are presented in time and all procedural requirements are met. We can offer assistance and representation in relation to the following matters:

Unfair and Constructive Dismissal

Where your employer has ended the employment relationship and dismissed you in a way that is unlawful (Unfair Dismissal) or where you are forced to resign or leave your job because of your employer’s behaviour (Constructive Dismissal).

Unlawful Discrimination

Where you’ve been treated badly or less favourably than others because of who you are.

Bullying and Harassment at Work

Behaviour that makes you feel intimidated or offended. Harassment is unlawful under the Equality Act 2010.

Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures

Procedures put in place to govern the steps an employer should follow when an employee is performing unsatisfactorily.

Unfair Redundancy Selections

Your employer should use a fair and objective way of selecting you for redundancy. If you feel you have been unfairly selected, you are able to make a claim.

Unlawful deductions from Pay

If your employer has failed to pay you or paid you less than you are entitled to.

Employment Contracts

All employees should have an employment contract. Your contract sets our employment conditions, rights, responsibilities and duties.

Settlement Agreements

A legally binding agreement between you and your employer when your employer wishes to terminate your employment.
