Are you dealing with a difficult situation at work such as a disciplinary or redundancy process; want to raise a grievance? Perhaps you're just looking to renegotiate your employment terms. We offer specialist employment law support, advice, and representation to help employees facing difficult situations at work, throughout the UK.

By law, all employees have the right to access official Trade Union Representation. Even if you are not in a Trade Union we provide access to expert trade union representation and support. Our reps will accompany and represent you directly at your own place of work, giving you the support and help when it is needed.


Your employer could start formal disciplinary action against you if they have concerns about your work, conduct or absence.


From time to time you may find yourself dealing with a difficult situation at work that warrants raising a grievance with your employer.


If you’re going to be made redundant, you should be treated fairly by your employer and there are steps that they are expected to follow.

Absence Management

An employer is likely to deal with a worker’s unacceptable absence at some stage and dong so properly can ensure the working relationship remains healthy.


Whether it's a disciplinary allegation, disciplinary investigation, suspension during a disciplinary, disciplinary appeal or a disciplinary hearing - we can support you.


Do you have an employee who has raised a grievance? Once a grievance or concern is brought to your attention, you have a duty to deal with this in the correct way.

Harassment & Bullying

Bullying and harassment within the workplace can lead to increased levels of absence and high staff turnover as well as reduced productivity and staff morale.

Whether it's the redundancy process, redundancy selection pool and criteria, alternative roles or redundancy appeals - we're here to support you and your business.

Performance Management

No matter how good or skilled a worker is there is likely to come a time when that performance dips. If that drop is long-term it will need to be addressed.


The 2010 Equality Act is the most significant piece of equality legislation for many years. It makes it easier for employers to understand their responsibilities by simplifying the law.
