How Can Employment Law Solicitors Help You?

Employment law covers all legal issues and aspects pertaining to employment from the recruitment and hiring process to termination of employment, whether forced or voluntary.

Employment laws and regulations cover the rights and obligations of employees on one hand and the duties, rights and obligations of employers on the other.

The law can be quite confusing to both employers and employees. This creates the need for a legal professional who has specialised in this area of law.

Employment solicitors Reading can offer an invaluable service to both employers and employees. Read on below to find out more about how these legal professionals can help you.

Relevant Employment Advice

Whether you are an employer or employee, an employment lawyer can advise you on a variety of legal issues centred on employment. For instance, they can explain your legal rights, including all the laws pertaining to the issue at hand. Furthermore, these professionals can explain your options ranging from negotiation, mediation and litigation among others.
To help you achieve the best possible outcome, your choice of lawyer can advise you on the advantages and disadvantages of each of the courses of action mentioned above.


As previously stated, employment law sets out the rights, obligations and duties of employers. When contacted by employers, these solicitors can help their clients comply with all the provisions of employment law and any other applicable legal regulations and guidelines.

These professionals can also be contracted to help with the drafting of compliant legal policies that help management avoid any cases of discrimination the on the basis of race, religion, sex and nationality.
In case employers are called upon to respond to any issues or complaints lodged with governmental agencies or boards, they are represented by employment law solicitors.

Filing Complaints

Aggrieved employees who feel that they have been mistreated by their employers have the right to file a complaint with an employment tribunal. It is worth noting that before going this route, most professionals will advise you to try and find a solution with your employer.

When it comes to filing a legal complaint, employees have to do so within the stipulated period. Otherwise, they will lose their right to seek legal redress.

An employment lawyer can explain the different time limits applicable to different types of employee complaints, and where necessary help you meet such strict deadlines by filing the complaint on your behalf.

Filing Lawsuits

In the event that an employee feels aggrieved by their employer’s conduct, they have two options when it comes to seeking legal redress. They can sit down with the employer and try to seek an amicable solution to the issue at hand, or where this approach fails, file a legal complaint or lawsuit.

Employment lawyers can help employees properly prepare for a legal battle in cases involving denied wages and wrongful termination among others. In such cases, they help build the issue by identifying the areas which they should lay emphasis on.
On the other hand, these legal professionals help defend employers against such legal actions, in addition to filing cases against employees who are accused of violating confidentiality agreements or non-compete clauses among others by their employers.

No Win No Fee

It is common for employees to avoid seeking legal help when it comes to filing complaints against employers due to their fear of being charged huge legal fees. However, most employment solicitors adopt a No Win No Fee approach.

This means that they do not charge their clients any fees unless they win the claim and secure compensation for their clients. This helps ensure that all employees can access their professional services whenever necessary.

From the above, you should have a clear idea of what an employment solicitor can do for you.
