Employment Law

While outwardly we may be best known for our employment litigation work, our strength for many people is achieving resolution through confidential settlements. Our specialist employment Solicitors are skilled in advising employees on how to manage and resolve employment problems both independently, and with our assistance in mediation or alternative dispute resolution procedures.

We can also provide expert, straightforward and practical advice on issues such as:

  • Unfair or wrongful dismissal
  • Discrimination
  • Disciplinary or performance related proceedings
  • Negotiating your contract of employment
  • Work-related stress
  • Bullying at work
  • Employment tribunal procedure
  • Equal pay, wages and working time regulations

If the matter is beyond resolution amicably we can represent you by assisting with all aspects of your claim including, if necessary, liaising with the employer’s representatives and the Employment Tribunal on your behalf, preparing for the final hearing, and representing you at the final hearing. We will also advise you in relation to the negotiation and settlement of any claim.

If you are having trouble in the workplace and would like some friendly impartial legal advice, contact McCloughan Gunn & Co. today, we’re here to help.
