Coping with issues at work can be overwhelming.
Employment law is complex, and you may not even be aware that your employer is failing to uphold your rights. Whatever your situation, our employment law solicitors can guide you through and ensure you are treated fairly and with respect throughout.
Being dismissed can come as a shock, as can learning that you will face a disciplinary procedure. Many people feel they have been treated unfairly, but how do you know if your employer really has done something wrong?
Signs that you may have suffered an unfair or wrongful dismissal include:
● your dismissal is unrelated to your performance, capability or conduct● you have been dismissed in breach of your contract● you have not received an adequate notice period● your employer has not followed proper procedure in dismissing you● you feel that your disciplinary procedure was mishandled or wrongly concluded
If you have been unfairly or wrongfully dismissed, you may be able to make a claim for compensation in an employment tribunal.
Challenging discrimination, bullying and harassment
You should not have to tolerate bullying, harassment or discrimination in your workplace. Bullying can take many forms, and your employer should protect you from all unacceptable behaviour, including:
● being excluded or ignored● having rumours spread about you● being threatened or aggressed● being blocked from opportunities for progression
If you are targeted for ill-treatment because of a certain characteristic (like your age, gender or race), you may be experiencing harassment or discrimination.
The first step in stopping such objectionable behaviour is to make an informal complaint. If your employer does not respond satisfactorily, you can raise a formal grievance. Should your employer still fail to resolve the issue, you may be able to seek compensation through an employment tribunal.
