If you feel you’ve been treated unfairly, discriminated against or bullied, or are simply not sure of your rights at work, Newnham & Jordan’s specialist employment team are here to offer thorough advice on a wide variety of employment issues. We serve Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire with our offices in Ferndown and Weymouth.
Employment law is one of the most complex areas of law and due to increased legislation is constantly changing.
Our specialist employment law solicitors offer a personal and effective employment law service and will ensure that your employment rights are protected. They understand the issues facing you and will ensure that you take the appropriate steps right from the start. You need to be aware that the law imposes strict time deadlines, so you need to act immediately. Employees only have three months, less one day, from the date of dismissal to begin an Employment Tribunal action, even if they are pursuing an internal appeal. Our employment lawyers are skilled at negotiating to achieve substantial settlements for our clients. If this is not possible, they will represent their clients when their claims are heard in the Employment Tribunal.
