Employment Law legal advice for employees
Our award-winning team of specialist employment lawyers advise on every aspect of employment law.
From offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Thurso, Moray and Shetland we support individuals through all aspects of the employment relationship.
We provide advice on rights arising in the workplace, helping with grievances, whistleblowing, equality, discrimination and bonus disputes, through to rights arising from the termination of employment, constructive dismissal, unfair dismissal, including on exits by way of settlement agreements (also known as compromise agreements or redundancy agreements).
Our Employment Lawyers in Scotland frequently advise the employee throughout the problems and issues giving rise to the settlement agreement being offered, but equally we will advise on the terms of the settlement agreement itself on a stand-alone basis, when an employer has presented the settlement agreement without warning or without our involvement.
With offices across Scotland in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Thurso, Elgin & Shetland our employment team will be happy to help with your employment issues. Employment law is UK-wide and we can help you even if your employer is based elsewhere in the UK.
