Why do you need an employment lawyer?

Employment lawyers can assist you with a wide range of issues from managing your employees to disciplining them or dismissing them. Employment lawyers can assist you with these concerns as well as other critical employment aspects.

Formal communication

When dealing with a situation at work, it is best to communicate formally with a letter.

All employers, as well as all employees, have rights in the workplace. Ignorance of such rights can put an employment relationship at risk. It’s good business practice to be fair to every person and uphold the rights of others. Grievances are best handled through formal letters as they may be read by officials of the court and government agencies. For serious cases, such as discrimination or unfair dismissalAsk a lawyer.

From hiring to firing

If you want to resign from your job, you will need to submit a resignation letter. Sending a resignation letter will help ensure that you don’t leave on bad terms. Whatever reason you have for leaving your job, your resignation letter should be positive and formal. This will allow you to leave on good terms and will benefit you in the long run, especially if you need a reference from your employer.

Employee requests

If you are an employee, you may make a request for flexible working hours by submitting a flexible working request letter and you can request for a change of terms in your employment contract. Your employer can either approve these changes with a change to employment terms letter or they can reject your request, but they must provide reasonable reasons for doing so.

Employee grievances

You may want to raise a grievance or an appeal to your employer, but it’s not always best to do this by yourself. If you think you’ve been constructively dismissed, then you must file a formal letter. It’s also important that you get legal advice from an expert employment lawyer. Constructive dismissal is extremely difficult to prove and requires careful analysis of the situation. An employment lawyer can tell you about the pros and cons of your case so you know what your chances are if you were to take the case to the Employment Tribunal.

Disciplinary measures

Employers meet all types of employees on a daily basis. Employers need to ensure that they have robust disciplinary procedures in place if they want to create a safe and fair working environment for their employees.

Disciplining employees for misconduct or poor performance can be a tricky issue, and may have become a negative experience. You can Ask a lawyer about the correct, fair and legal ways of disciplining employees.

Disciplinary procedures can be lengthy and involve multiple meetings and formal letters so make sure you understand the process.

Employment tribunal

Employment disputes that are not fairly settled can be taken to the Employment Tribunal. The Employment Tribunal is usually used as a last resort when informal or formal talks have broken down between the employee and employer. The Employment Tribunal will decide on the merits of the case and provide their judgment based on the law. In these cases, any employer or employee will usually hire an employment lawyer. Ask a lawyer to help you with your case and uphold your rights.
