Work is a large and important part of your life. We know that being an employee isn't always easy going especially when a difficult professional situation puts your happiness and financial security at risk.

It can feel overwhelming to deal with your employer. It can seem like it's 'me against all of them' and that you haven't a hope of being treated fairly or for your complaints to be taken seriously. Whether you are a company director needing advice on your rights and obligations, or a junior employee wanting help dealing with a difficult situation at work, as skilled employment solicitors and HR professionals, we can help.

If you do have a dispute with your employer, you need no-nonsense, practical and affordable employment law advice quickly from the team at Spencers Solicitors. Trying to navigate your way through the legal maze by yourself could cost you a lot more than just your time. Together it doesn't have to be confrontational, frightening or stressful.

In employment law, there is only a limit amount of time for you to act - usually three months less one day from the date of the dismissal (unfair or constructive) or discrimination to preserve your employment rights

Before you can issue proceedings, you must first notify ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) of a potential claim and start the Early Conciliation process. It is essential you get the details and timing correct. We can take care of the Early Conciliation process for you - giving you the best chance to settle your dispute or issue a claim on your behalf for a guaranteed fixed fee. Find out more here.

It won't cost you a penny for an initial no-obligation appraisal. If after that you want to instruct us then we can act for you on a no-win no-fee basis, fixed and capped costs or paid for by your insurers. If you have a settlement agreement and your employer is contributing to your legal costs, we guarantee that you will not be charged more than what your employer is prepared to contribute towards costs. You can find out more about how we charge here.
