For most people, having a job is an essential part of life. There are challenges in any workplace, so it is important to know what your rights are and how to resolve any issues that may come up.

If you have a problem at work, our team can help you understand how to resolve it, whether you’re sorting things out informally, taking out a grievance or making a claim to an employment tribunal.
Employment rights are designed to balance the expectations of the job with the fair treatment of the employee doing it. Your exact employment rights will vary depending on the kind of job you do, the arrangement you have with your employer and many other variables. But it is important that you understand your rights to avoid being treated unfairly by your employer. Our team can help advise on your maternity or paternity rights, your right to work remotely or the support available for long-term health conditions such as Long Covid.
Many employment issues relate specifically to senior executives. In our experience, the increased pay, bonuses and benefits for senior executives and directors usually come hand in hand with more restrictions and duties – such as restrictive covenants and increased notice periods. Our team of experts have a wealth of experience in drafting, negotiating and advising on such agreements in order to get the best deal for you.
