Employees

There are many circumstances where employees may also benefit from the services of an employment lawyer, and these include :

  • Flexible working hours – if, for example, an employee is returning from maternity leave and has had their request to work flexible working hours refused by their employer they may need advice from an employment lawyer.
  • Redundancy – an employee may need advice on their rights when redundancy is looming.
  • Discrimination and bullying – if an employee feels they are being discriminated against, or bullied, and the matter has not been resolved internally the employee may benefit from the advice of an employment lawyer.
  • Accusations – if an employee finds themselves of being accused of something they have not done in the workplace they may need urgent legal advice.
  • Equal pay – according to the law male and female employees must be paid the same amount if they are employed in the same role. If an employee has reason to believe this is not the case in their workplace they may need to take legal advice.
  • Unfair and constructive dismissal – if an employer feels they have been unfairly, or constructively, dismissed it may be prudent to take legal advice as soon as possible regarding their rights.
