Employment Law

Unfair Dismissal - Discrimination

At Winrow Solicitors we assist with employment tribunal and other employment law problems. Whether you are an employer, or an employee who has been dismissed, or are claiming discrimination, we can help:

Types of cases we handle

Workplace Bullying and Harassment.  Are you working in an environment where unwanted touching or offensive jokes and comments are seen as normal? Is a boss or colleague making unwanted sexual advances? Are you being humiliated in front of colleagues? You deserve to work in an environment free of harassment and bullying. The law insists that employers hear any complaints and take the right steps to stop the harassment. If they don’t then our experienced employment solicitors can help you hold them accountable.

Unfair dismissal.  If there was nothing wrong with your job performance but you were fired you may have an unfair dismissal case. You cannot be dismissed for things such as being pregnant, being part-time, being in a trade union, insisting that you earn the national minimum wage, or protecting yourself from serious and imminent danger.

Wrongful dismissal.  Wrongful dismissal is not about why you were dismissed but how you were dismissed – were you given the correct notice as example.

Constructive Dismissal.  If you’re planning to leave your job because of your employer’s behaviour then call us first. You may have a case for constructive dismissal, but you need to go about it in the right way.

Discrimination at work.  Employers are prohibited from discriminating unfairly against you when making decisions about hiring, promoting, demoting, firing, training, providing benefits and more. For example, you cannot be harassed in relation to your sex or gender, race or nationality, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age. There’s a number of legal options available if you act quickly. One of our location employment solicitors will review your situation and advise if you can make a claim.

Settlement Agreements or Compromise Agreements.  If you've been offered a settlement or compromise agreement then we can make sure that it protects your rights.

Transfer of Undertakings.  If the business you work for has been sold or merged, your employment contract could be protected under TUPE Legislation.


DIY Lawyer

Want to be a DIY lawyer? A nurse came to us recently seeking advice. She had made a claim against her employer on the basis that she had not been paid for the many hours she had been on call. She issued the claim herself in the County Court.

At trial, the judge ruled against her, stating that she had misinterpreted the contract. Her employer claimed over £10,000 costs against her. The judge awarded those costs. She then filed an appeal, but she was late doing so and so the appeal was refused. She applied to have the refusal overturned. That application was refused.

As a result of pursuing the claim herself, without any legal advice, this client has ended up with a huge bil of costs. Certainly, you can sometimes be a DIY lawyer, but when it comes to more complex claims you should always consult a solicitor. We provide the first half hour of advice for free anyway, so you have nothing to lose.
