We are able to offer advice on any employment law related issue.
Having a job is an essential part of most people’s lives. We help you to deal with a range of issues and difficulties you may experience in the workplace.
Many people do not know their basic employment rights and know less about enforcing them.
We provide advice and guidance to employees and individuals. We do not advise employers or business organisations.
Our service helps you to understand your employment rights and responsibilities. We provide advice and assistance on a range of issues including;
- Workplace disputes and Grievances
- Employee Rights
- Unfair Dismissal and Constructive Dismissal
- Variation and Breach of Contract
- Maternity and Paternity Rights
- Health and Safety at work
- Unauthorised deductions
- Working Time
- Leaving work
- Agency Workers
- Workers rights when under 18 years old
- Industrial Tribunal procedure
We are unable to provide representation at Industrial or Fair Employment Tribunals. There is no legal aid for Employment Law cases other than discrimination matters.
If you need representation to pursue a breach of your employment rights you may be able to access free legal assistance through your trade union (if you are a member), via the Law Centre NI or in instances of discrimination by contacting the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland.
Alternatively, check your home insurance or other insurances as they may provide legal cover for employment cases.
If you have any employment related queries, contact us.
