Employment

Most people experience an employment issue of some sort during their working life. If you are lucky enough not to, it is likely a friend or family member will do. Problems at work can be extremely stressful and can lead to problems at home or even health issues.

If you feel your employers have treated you unfairly we can provide clear, straightforward support to help you resolve the situation, and give you peace of mind. If you are having a dispute at work, feel that you are being treated differently, have been dismissed unfairly or feel you have been forced to resign, we can assist.

We will help clarify the options you have and the choices you can make. We will always give you sound advice as to what is achievable and realistic. Our aim is for you to get the most out of the situation and to be in the best possible place to move on. With insight and guidance you may be able to challenge the position you find yourself in or you may be able to negotiate a better package – coming to us you will find an expert, understanding and a proactive ally.
