How can an employment solicitor in Cambridge help me?

As mentioned above, a solicitor experienced in employment law should be able to give assistance with a wide variety of legal issues. Here are a few of the most typical issues that require the help of a firm of solicitors:

  • Unfair dismissal - Unfair dismissal happens when your employer dismisses you from your employment with no justification or when they do not follow the formal dismissal procedures for the company. An employment law solicitor can benefit victims of unfair dismissal by offering advice and support in progressing claims and seeking legal solutions. An employment law solicitor can further assist their clients in explaining and guiding them through any required employment tribunal for their case.
  • Constructive dismissal - Constructive dismissal refers to an employee's need to leave their job unwillingly as a result of their employer’s conduct. Employment solicitors can assist you in bringing about a constructive dismissal case including causes such as unpaid wages, allowing colleagues to bully you, unreasonable demotion or changes in working conditions.
  • Redundancy - Redundancy is a form of dismissal from your job that is instigated by your employer when they need to reduce the size of their workforce often because of financial difficulties or reduced workloads. When an employee is made redundant, they are protected by a number of rights and an employment law solicitor will ensure that these rights are observed and that the redundancy is carried out in a fair and reasonable way. Your solicitor can also help ensure that you are selected for redundancy on fair grounds and not because of discriminative reasons.
  • Discrimination at Work - Employees in the UK are protected by UK law to ensure that they have safe working environments and are protected from discrimination within the workplace. The Equality Act 2010 sets out the legislation that governs discrimination and explains that discriminatory behaviour is unlawful. The act states that it is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against employees or those applying for a job. If your employer has discriminated against you, you may be eligible to take legal action and an employment law solicitor will be able to guide you through legal processes to achieve justice and compensation.
  • Maternity and Paternity Rights - The law offers a range of protections for employees who have a baby or adopt a child through statutory maternity and paternity rights. Statutory maternity leave amounts to up to one year off work and one or two consecutive weeks are offered for statutory paternity leave. Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) is the lower of £139.58 or 90% of your average weekly earnings (for the following 33 weeks) and is paid for up to 39 weeks. Statutory Paternity Pay is paid to eligible employees at a rate of whichever is lower of £139.58 per week or 90% of their average weekly earnings. Employment law solicitors help their clients to recognise and access the legal rights that they are eligible for with regards to maternity and paternity benefits and ensure that employers treat such workers legally and fairly.

Questions to ask before hiring an employment solicitor in Cambridge

Choosing a solicitor can feel like a challenge. It is important that you find a solicitor that you not only have confidence in, but also feel comfortable talking to. To assess the most suitable firm for your needs, it is wise to ask the following questions before hiring a solicitor:

  • How much experience does the solicitor have? Do they hold any awards or accreditations?
  • How much will they charge for their work? Is the fee fixed or variable?
  • What is the anticipated timeframe to complete the case?
  • How and when can you contact the solicitor?
  • Can the solicitor provide any relevant references from former clients?
  • What level of success has the firm had on similar cases?
