Employment Law

Employment Law Solicitors in Colchester with more than 90 years’ experience.

Employment law covers all aspects of the legal relationship between the employee and employer. At John Fowlers Solicitors, our employment lawyers keep up-to-date with the frequent changes in employment law and assist in resolving employment disputes such as claims of unfair dismissal, unfair redundancy, discrimination, and unlawful deduction of wages, to name a few. We regularly represent clients at the Employment Tribunal.

As well as working with the employed, we often handle self-employment cases such as settling claims of non-payment, for instance.

Our employment law solicitors in Colchester have extensive experience supporting and advising clients and managing the dispute process, including resolving a dispute while still in employment and maximising on the outcome once employment has ended.

Taking your employer or employee to court is a delicate process and, for the best outcome, must be handled with the utmost care – that’s where our professional, passionate, and personable employment lawyers in Colchester, Essex, come in.

Remember that new laws indicate you must have been employed for at least two years before you can file a claim against your employer. You must also pursue compulsory early conciliation with the Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) before you can lodge a claim with the Employment Tribunal. If your case makes it to the Employment Tribunal, you will need to pay court fees so ensure you are aware of the costs involved.

The areas of employment law we cover include:

  • Unfair Redundancy
  • Unlawful Deduction of Wages
  • Discrimination
  • Suspensions
  • Disciplinary Procedures
  • Grievances Procedures
  • Settlement Negotiations

To find out if you have a claim, contact us for a free, no-obligation phone consultation.
