Employment Law Solicitors - Tribunal Compensation Claims Lawyers
Employment law solicitors deal with the rights of both employees and employers including discrimination, harassment, victimisation, bullying, data protection, discipline, grievances, dismissal, Employment Tribunals, Employment Appeal Tribunals, health & safety, maternity and parental rights, terms and conditions of employment, Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE) and working time regulations.
There are numerous employment law statutes passed by the UK parliament which work in conjunction with EC regulations. Some legislation is specific to particular issues that frequently arise whereas some serious matters must rely on nonspecific legislation for enforcement. The remedy for employers is usually dismissal in the event that an employee has transgressed but this remedy must be applied in a lawful manner in accordance with the legislation. In the event that an employee believes that dismissal was unlawful they have recourse to the Employment Tribunal (ET), with an appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal and thereafter an application to the Court of Appeal. The ET can make a declaration, order re-instatement or award financial compensation. In all cases time limits apply and there should be no delay in contacting an employment solicitor if you intend to make a compensation claim for unfair dismissal, discrimination, harassment or victimisation. Certain applications attract financial awards that are unlimited in amount including sex, race, age, disability, religious beliefs, pregnancy, marital status or sexual orientation discrimination, harassment or victimisation and the usual requirement for a minimum period of employment does not apply in these cases.
Just some of the legislation that deals with employment law are as follows :-
- The Employment Rights Act 1996
- The Sex Discrimination Act, 1975
- The Race Relations Act, 1976
- The Disability Discrimination Act, 1995
- The National Minimum Wage Act, 1998
- The Working Time Directive, 1999
- The Employment Relations Act, 1999
