From Unfair Dismissal to Settlement Payments, We Can Help
Hattons Solicitors represents clients in matters pertaining to all aspects of employment law, including settlement agreements, unfair dismissal, discrimination, and contractual or pay disputes.
How Does an Employment Tribunal Differ from Court?
Whenever there’s a dispute between an employer and its employees regarding employment rights, an employment tribunal may be called upon to help resolve it. An employment tribunal isn’t as formal as a court hearing, although any decisions reached by an employment tribunal are just as legally binding in the United Kingdom. Other issues commonly brought before an employment tribunal include pay issues involving maternity, paternity, or adoption leave, unlawful wage deductions, disputes surrounding time off for family reasons and dependants, problems involving complaints, grievances and resignations, problems with holidays and holiday pay, and disputes in which employers have failed to pay the National Minimum Wage.
Whatever your specific conflict or breach of contract, our employment law solicitors in St Helens would be happy to examine your case and advise you on defending an employment tribunal claim. Once a claim has been filed, you will be allowed to respond and submit your account of the events in question to the employment tribunal. Witness statements and documents may be exchanged back and forth until a hearing is held with both parties and their representation. Once everything has been presented, a decision will be reached.
Benefits of Hiring Specialised Solicitors in Employment Law
Disputes involving employment law can be among the most challenging to pursue before an employment tribunal or court. Often, employment laws are written using confusing legal jargon the average person doesn’t understand. When you compound those difficulties with the strict deadlines, it becomes more apparent why you should consider hiring a solicitor who specialises in employment law to aid you with preparing your case to defend the claim. Hiring a solicitor with a proven record of expertise in employment law is to your best advantage versus hiring a general solicitor with less experience in this field. Hattons Solicitors has access to a vast network of resources to help you navigate through the employment laws most relevant to building your case or claim.
