Employment Law for Employees

Employment Law for Employees

Employment law for employees is an ever-changing landscape, and recent court cases have meant that the status of self employed staff and contract staff has changed, giving them more rights. Whatever your employment status, you need to understand your situation.

How can Neves support you?

You spend a lot of time at work and issues in the workplace can be a major source of stress and anxiety. We are accustomed to dealing with sensitive and protracted employment law dispute issues and our experience sees us address these in a unique and personal way to suit the needs of the individual concerned. 

Our clients

We have dealt with all types of employment law related issues and have successfully advised our clients in respect of defending disciplinary proceedings, raising grievances, pursuing tribunal claims or answering questions on points of employment law that appear to have been breached. Your enquiry could relate to:

  • Contractual issues;
  • Salary problems;
  • Bonus concerns;
  • Dismissal;
  • Discrimination;
  • Whistleblowing;
  • Settlement agreement.

Our employment law service for employees

Our team will meet with you for an initial, fixed fee consultation to explore the employment law issues you face or understand your objectives. This will then allow us to explore all of the options open to you and put together a tailor made plan of action moving forward. During our initial meeting we aim to discuss your objectives, your timescales and also your budget.  We can then ensure any advice given meets your needs. We offer an hours’ consultation for £150 plus VAT.

If you have been offered a settlement agreement it is customary for the employer to make a contribution towards your legal fees. It may be that this contribution covers all of our fees for advising on the terms and effects of the agreement. This is something that will be discussed with you from the outset. 

Our employment law fees

We do not aim to be the cheapest option but strive to be the most cost effective. Our initial consultation with you is on a fixed fee basis. We try to work with clients on a fixed fee basis so everyone knows where they stand in respect of fees. This can sometimes be difficult and subject to change. If costs in your matter are likely to be higher than estimated, you will be told immediately. Our billing system is such is that we interim bill on a manageable and affordable basis to avoid the fear and strain of a large legal bill at the end of a piece of work. We can also discuss funding options with you where appropriate. 

Very happy with the service you have provided Elizabeth. I definitely made the right decision to go independent!
