Frequently asked questions
What does an employment solicitor do?
An employment solicitor provides specialist legal help and assistance when an individual believes they have been mistreated by their employer or that employment legislation has been broken. They can draft and negotiate new employment contracts that both employer and employee are happy with.
How do I take legal action against my employer?
If you are unable to resolve an employment dispute internally via your HR department or manager then you may want to elevate it to an employment tribunal. When doing this is would be wise to seek out help from a legal professional who specialises in these sorts of cases.
Do I need an employment solicitor to go to an employment tribunal?
No. However, it may be wise to seek the help of a specialist employment solicitor who has experience successfully helping clients when preparing your case for a tribunal. It will mean you are better informed, especially if your employer seeks legal representation.
Can I sue my employer for stress and anxiety?
Yes, however they can be more difficult than other employment claims to successfully prove and so it can be useful to at least seek advice from an employment solicitor. Many cases concerning stress or anxiety have been successful though so it is not impossible.
What are my legal rights as an employee?
You have a number of rights as an employee that are important, but some key legal rights you should be aware of are:
- You must receive a payslip
- You cannot be discriminated against for any reason
- Employee health and safety must be considered
- You are entitled to statutory sick pay
- You are entitled to maternity and/or paternity leave
