Individual Employment

You spend a lot of time at work, so if it is turning into a nightmare, life can become a real trial. Similarly, you work to make a living, so if you lose your job or fear you will lose your job, your stress levels can rise alarmingly.

Problems with work can blight your whole life. This is one of the reasons there is a great deal of legislation to protect workers from unfair treatment by their employers, both at work and when jobs are being cut.

We are experienced in dealing with the whole range of problems employees can have related to work - including health and safety matters.

In appropriate employment cases we are also able to offer "no win no fee" arrangements whereby our charges are directly linked to a proportion of the value of compensation recovered on your behalf. Alternatively, we are happy to accept funding from your legal expenses insurer.
