Book a Free Initial Consultation
Under employment law, we are all afforded fundamental rights that need to be adhered to in the workplace. Most notably, you cannot be unfairly dismissed, unfairly selected for redundancy, or forced out of your job by your employer. If you have been, you may have a claim for compensation that we can help you pursue.
Likewise, if you are still employed but continue to have problems at work, our team can help you understand the best course of action to raise a formal grievance. Where this is unsuccessful, we can provide straightforward advice on further legal options.
While successfully challenging your employer may seem like an impossible task, our solicitors are here to make the entire process easier, from negotiating compensation on your behalf to submitting your application to the Employment Tribunal.
The average person spends over 90,000 hours at work in their lifetime, so if your employment rights aren’t being respected, we can help you take action quickly.

How We Can Help You
Unfair Dismissal & Redundancy
When an employer wishes to remove an employee they must follow strict employment laws and company procedures. Unfortunately, in some cases, employers may attempt to circumvent these in order to save time and money.
If you’ve been dismissed or made redundant out of the blue, or do not feel you’ve been given adequate time to improve your performance, our team may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Discrimination & Harassment
The work environment should be one where you feel respected. Therefore, if you believe you have been unfairly harassed or treated differently because of your race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion, sex, age or maternity, we can help you pursue a claim for compensation.
Our solicitors will treat your employment claim with complete confidentiality and sensitivity to minimise any disruption to your professional and personal life.
Applications to the Employment Tribunal
If you have an employment claim, you may wish to make an application to the Employment Tribunal for compensation, reinstatement or, in some cases both. However, making an application to the Employment Tribunal can be a daunting process and you may be unsure of where to start.
At Shams Williams Solicitors, we can take the stress of claiming through the Employment Tribunal off your shoulders by managing the application and even representing you at the Tribunal.
