Answer

There are many reasons you may need a lawyer in employment matters.

Before starting a job, you may want to have your employment contract checked by a lawyer before you sign. There may be conditions, terminology you don't understand or 'small print' that is worth double-checking before putting pen to paper.

The most common reasons to get in touch with a lawyer include:

  • constructive or unjustifiable dismissal
  • harassment or bullying
  • unfairly made redundant

“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
