Oftentimes, it can be so exciting to get a new job offer. So exciting, in fact, that you might skip over one of the most important parts of starting a job; making sure your employment contract is fair. Sterling Law has years of expertise in this area, and we can advise you on your contract, as well as help you deal with discrimination in the workplace and workers’ rights. Hopefully, now that you are employed and you have a good contract, you will be able to get on with your work happily and securely.
However, issues can arise during work too. One of the most common issues people can face is dismissal from their employment – and this dismissal can often be unfair. If you are dismissed without good reason – such as asking for flexible working, refusing to not take rest breaks, asking for parental leave, or taking part in short industrial action, Sterling Law can help you recover. Our expert team has dealt with hundreds of issues in employment law, and we will build a strong case to make sure that you can only be dismissed on a legal basis. We can also help with constructive dismissal – when you are forced to leave your job, despite not wanting to, because of the way you are treated at work. This is not limited to harassment from your boss or other employees – if you are demoted arbitrarily or unreasonable changes are made to your contract, this is often illegal, and Sterling Law will help you exercise your rights.
We are also experienced in a variety of legal areas after something has happened at work; our team can help you with settlement agreements, tribunal cases, whistleblowing, furlough advice, working rights, and almost anything else that your case involves.CONSULTATION
