Compare Employment Solicitors

Employment solicitors advise both employees and employers, although individual solicitors tend to specialise in one or the other.

Although the Good Solicitor Guide is a consumer service that tends to be more focussed on legal services to employees, our database also includes Employment Solicitors offering representation to employers.  

Legal services for employees

Experiencing problems at work can be a distressing and all consuming experience for an employee.  Employment law in the UK sets out statutory rights for employees and if these are infringed then employees may be entitled to take legal action against their employer.

Many employment solicitors will take your case on a no win no fee basis.  This can be a good deal, particularly if a employees chances of success are borderline.

Solicitors can help employees in the following areas:

  • Negotiation of contracts
  • Wrongful dismissal
  • Constructive dismissal
  • Redundancy
  • Discrimination
  • Settlement agreements (aka compromise agreements)
  • Disciplinary hearings
  • Representation at employment tribunal
  • Bullying
  • Flexible working
  • Stress

Legal services for employers

Keeping up to date with the ever changing needs of a multi cultural work

Many employers choose to have their HR function audited and formalised with the help of an Employment Lawyer.  The solicitor will advise on standard contracts, documents and terms and conditions of employment along with all procedures and policies related to the employment of staff.

Some firms now off very reasonable monthly retainers which offer ongoing protection (even up to representation at an employment tribunal) for SME's who would not otherwise have access to an in house lawyer.

Services offered to employers include:

  • Advice on policies and procedures
  • Negotiation of contracts
  • TUPE  (Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment)
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Harassment
  • Breach of contract
  • Maternity/Paternity rights and issues

The Good Solicitor Guide maintains a database of solicitors specialising in employment matters along with independent reviews from previous clients.
