A traditional firm with a modern approach
Employment Law Solicitors for Employees
We believe no employee should be mistreated, disrespected or treated unfairly, when at work, or to have to face the added upset and distress of having to deal with a work-related conflict, all on their own.
If you are an employee facing dismissal or redundancy or have experienced any kind of discrimination, bullying or harassment in the workplace, we can help you make a claim against your employer for unfair treatment or advise you on how best to resolve your employment dispute as quickly and as amicably, as possible, so you can get your professional life back on track.
Since we spend a significant amount of our life at work, it is not unreasonable for you to expect your employer to provide a safe and fair place for you to work. There are times, however, when employers fail to properly respect employee rights.
At Taylor Fordyce, our dedicated team of employment solicitors are ready to explain your rights and advise you on how you can use them. We can help you whether your dispute is being pursued as an official grievance or where that matter is at a more advanced stage and you have decided to take legal action through an Employment Tribunal.
With tailored advice, dedicated support and robust representation, when needed, you can be confident your matter will be managed professionally by the most skilled and experienced hands.
