I have been very happy with the help and representation I have received from Jayne. I would highly recommend her and the firm. She made everything easy to understand during a very difficult time and I am eternally grateful.

Representing Employees in the Workplace

Workplace discrimination

Dealing with discrimination can be a humiliating and degrading experience for anyone, let alone employees and needs to be treated very seriously to ensure it’s prevented at all costs.

You might be discriminated against because of your sex, sexual orientation, religion and belief, race, colour or nationality, disability, age, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, marriage or civil partnership or because you are employed under either a part-time or fixed-term contract.

We have particular expertise in pregnancy/maternity discrimination. We understand how difficult it can be to return to work after maternity leave, especially if you feel you are fighting to save your job or with changes that have been implemented during your absence. Read our workplace discrimination page to find out more and discover how our employee lawyers can help you.

Workplace grievance & complaints

Grievances and complaints at work should be raised formally with your employer. However, some can be tricky to navigate, depending on their nature. Richard Nelson LLP’s team of solicitors for employees can advise you on all aspects of the grievance procedure.

Unfair dismissal

Losing your job can be an ordeal, not least because it can leave you in financial uncertainty. If you have been unfairly dismissed, you can claim compensation. You can even ask for your job back or for your employer to re-employ you in another position. Our employment lawyers for employees can guide you through the employment tribunal procedure, which can be complicated and stressful.

Harassment & bullying

No one should have to deal with harassment and bullying in modern society, in the employment environment or otherwise. It can make you feel humiliated, worthless or degraded. You might be worried that no one will believe you or that you will get into trouble by raising the problem.

Employment tribunal claims

Our employment solicitors for employees will work with you to help determine whether or not your case should be taken before the employment tribunal. We will ensure that you understand the options available to you at every step of the process and that you are fully prepared should a tribunal come to pass.

Judicial mediation

The team of employment law solicitors for employees at Richard Nelson LLP has extensive experience of judicial mediation in Employment Tribunal claims.

How much do Employment Solicitors for Employees cost?

We will always discuss employee solicitor fees with you openly and set limits on costs so that you know how much you have spent on legal fees. It may be likely that you already have legal costs covered, as legal expense insurance can sometimes be covered by home insurance, for example. However, we will discuss this with you when appropriate. Read more about our employment law fees.

During an employment tribunal, it’s typical for each side to pay its own legal fees, irrespective of the tribunal’s outcome. There are exceptions but cost orders are rarely awarded.
