Common Types of Disputes with Employees

We specialise in helping both employers and employees navigate various types of disputes that can arise in the workplace. 

Here are some common types of disputes with employees:

Unfair Dismissal

One of the most frequent workplace disputes is related to allegations of unfair or wrongful termination of employment. We can assist both employers and employees in addressing and resolving these claims.

Discrimination

Discrimination claims can arise based on various protected characteristics such as age, race, gender, religion, disability and more. We provide guidance and representation to ensure that discrimination issues are handled appropriately and in compliance with the law.

Bullying and Harassment

Complaints of bullying, harassment or hostile work environments require careful handling. We work with employers and employees to address these concerns and create a safe and respectful workplace environment.

Contractual Disputes

Conflicts related to employment contracts, terms and conditions can lead to disputes. Our legal expertise can help parties resolve these contractual issues efficiently.

Pay and Benefits Disputes

Disagreements over wages, bonuses, overtime, or benefits can strain employer-employee relationships. We assist in resolving these disputes, ensuring that both parties’ rights are protected.

Grievances

Employees may raise grievances related to various workplace issues. We provide support in addressing these grievances through appropriate channels and in accordance with legal requirements.

Redundancy

Issues concerning the fairness and legality of redundancy procedures may arise. Our team can offer guidance and legal representation to ensure that redundancy matters are handled fairly and lawfully.

Health and Safety Concerns

Workplace safety, accommodations for disabilities, and health-related matters are crucial. We help resolve disputes involving these concerns, ensuring that both employers and employees prioritise health and safety.

Unpaid Salary

Issues related to unpaid salaries can cause significant financial stress. Our legal support can help employees recover their rightful earnings.

No Holiday

Disputes over holiday entitlement and usage can be addressed through proper legal channels, ensuring that employees receive their entitled time off.

Maternity and Paternity Issues

Employees facing challenges related to maternity and paternity rights can turn to us for guidance and assistance in resolving these issues.

Sickness

Disputes related to sickness absence, pay during illness, and return-to-work arrangements require careful handling. We provide legal expertise to address these concerns effectively.

Bullying in the Workplace

Bullying in the workplace is a distressing issue that can adversely affect employees’ mental health and the overall work atmosphere. It encompasses various forms of mistreatment, such as verbal abuse, intimidation, and exclusion, leading to a toxic work environment. 

We take workplace bullying seriously and provide support to address and prevent such behaviour. We offer guidance to both employers and employees on recognising, reporting, and effectively handling instances of bullying, ensuring a healthier and more respectful workplace for all.

Resolving Staff Conflicts

To resolve staff conflicts, we leverage:

  • Legal assessments weighing evidence
  • Workplace mediation and open dialogues
  • Robust legal representation if needed
  • Revised policy drafting preventing recurring issues
  • Management training on harmonious workforce relations
  • Compliance audits ensuring adherence to regulations

This opens up more choices for long-lasting agreements.
