Employment Law legal advice for employees
Our award-winning team of specialist employment solicitors advises on every aspect of employment law.
From offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Thurso, Elgin and Shetland we support individuals through all aspects of the employment relationship. We provide advice on 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 Law Scotland team frequently advise the employee throughout the process leading to the settlement agreement but equally can advise on the terms of the settlement agreement itself on a stand-alone basis.
We also regularly assist in the negotiation and interpretation of service agreements, restrictive covenants and bonus schemes at the commencement of employment.
Throughout your employment, our specialist employment lawyers can provide strategic and practical advice on issues that may arise, such as grievances, disciplinary processes, discrimination, whistleblowing and reward disputes.
If it is necessary to raise employment tribunal claims to enforce rights, we represent employees from all sectors at employment tribunals throughout Scotland and England.
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.

Employee Settlement Agreement Advice
Have you been offered a settlement agreement (redundancy agreement or compromise agreement)? Don't sign anything until speaking to a solicitor
Being presented with a settlement agreement by your employer can be unsettling and daunting.
By law, there is a legal requirement that a Solicitor review and explains the terms of the settlement agreement to you before you have to sign anything. So if you've been offered a settlement agreement by your employer we're happy to provide advice.
We can offer quick turn arounds, complete transparency on fees, specialist advice from employment solicitors and we'll always listen to your needs.
We offer you a variety of ways to get in contact with us to suit you. If you would prefer to talk to someone straight away you can call our offices on:
