When you face issues in the workplace, such as redundancy, a disciplinary action or you have a grievance, you may feel that taking legal action will unnecessarily complicate or aggravate the situation. However, getting prompt legal advice to establish your position and whether your employer is acting legally is vital to ensuring the best and fairest outcome for you.
If it is found that your employer has acted incorrectly you may have grounds to contest their proposal and negotiate an improved offer or, if necessary, to take your employer to an Employment Tribunal to resolve the issue.
Mayflowers’ employment law expertise, derived from serving both employers as well as employees, provides individuals a highly effective service. And we are flexible too, recognizing that a threat of redundancy and reduced income makes full legal support questionable for many.
We are therefore available to provide whatever support you need through your individual process. Whether that is just an initial assessment of the situation and recommendations, coaching clients on handling matters themselves such as the redundancy interviews, or providing attendance in redundancy, disciplinary or grievance hearings through to representation at Tribunals.
The final steps of negotiating redundancy, compensation settlements and Compromise Agreements are no less vital and warrant Mayflower’s legal support as they determine the final payments and conditions of a termination.
