For general employment advice, we are able to offer an initial fixed fee consultation at discounted rates, and we can either arrange the appointment at our Reading or Oxford office. Alternatively, we are happy to arrange this initial fixed fee consultation with clients on the telephone – with relevant papers being emailed to us in advance of the telephone consultation.
Examples of this type of work are preparing 'grievance letters' for employees to send to their employer, advising employees on matters such as pregnancy and maternity issues, assisting in relation to issues on sickness, disability and ill health, and advising clients when they feel they may being subjected to harassment or bullying at work.

In many cases when you have a valid employment claim to the Employment Tribunal for Unfair Dismissal, Constructive Dismissal or a claim for breach of contract we can act for you on a "no win – no fee" basis.
In other words, we take the case on and if you win the case we charge you a fixed % of what you get from your former employer (either at Tribunal or through a settlement). If you lose your case we do not charge you a penny – so you can have the peace of mind of not having to lose any of your money on bringing a claim!
If we are not able to offer a "no win – no fee" arrangement we can bring a claim to the Employment Tribunal on a fee-paying basis, and we are always happy to work within agreed fee-budgets which goes to ensure that you keep control on legal costs as the case progresses.
