Employment Law Solicitors

The society has called for more action from the Government and employers to tackle pay discrimination, job "segregation" and help to get women into senior posts

Discrimination which is against the Equality Act is unlawful. This means you can take action in the employment tribunal.

We're here to help you and to offer you independent legal advice and we will liaise directly with your employer on your behalf to negotiate the terms where necessary and to ensure the best deal for you in your situation.

 Every year thousands of people are diagnosed with medical conditions caused by their work.   Exposure to dust, fumes, noise and vibration can all cause long-term health problems

We assist  in resolving employment disputes and have been continuously successful in winning compensation for victims. Our aim is to improve the quality of working life by ensuring you know what your rights are.

Unlike the majority of other employment claims, a claim for equal pay must be brought to the Tribunal within 6 months minus one day of:

  • leaving a job or;
  • a fundamental change in terms and conditions e.g. being TUPE transferred to another employer or promotion etc 

If your employer has provided you with a settlement agreement to consider, it is essential that you seek specialist legal advice, which we can provide for you at Simpsons Solicitors. 

If you believe that your employer has not followed a fair procedure in dismissing you, or that the decision to dismiss you was wholly unreasonable in the circumstances, then you may have a claim for unfair dismissal. 

It is important to understand that all employees by law must have Employers Liability insurance to cover against employees being injured in the workplace.

Unlawful discrimination arises when you are treated less favourably than someone else because of a protected characteristic. In the employment context, the discrimination may arise from a dismissal or another detrimental action, such as not promoting you, disciplining you without justification or carrying out acts of bullying or harassment.
