We can advise clients in relation to possible claims for race, sex, disability discrimination, and indeed all other aspects of discrimination. Often this may be conjunction with other possible claims e.g. Unfair Dismissal.
Performance Improvement Plans (PIP) can be a very stressful experience for an employee, and we can help you with that process. We can advise you whether to 'contest' the PIP, how to best work through any PIP, and we often negotiate Settlement Agreements with an employer as an alternative to going through a PIP.
We can also advise you in relation to appeals against disciplinary warnings and punishments (including appeals against dismissal). It is essential to get advice early on about the wisdom of appealing. Sometimes clients appeal when they shouldn't, and as a result make it much harder to win their case for Unfair Dismissal!
Jonathan West has 30 years experience helping resolve employment claims for people across the Thames Valley and South East England.
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.
