What is employment law?

Employment law is specific to the set of laws and rights that govern and help manage the relationship between you and your employer and offers you protection – whether you work full time, part time or are even self-employed. It covers a wide range of subjects and areas including: your working hours; wages; rights at work (such as parental rights); health and safety; holiday pay; equal pay; as well as protection from bullying and harassment; discrimination; and ensuring that correct procedures are observed in grievance and disciplinary procedures. We can ensure that you don’t breach your former employer’s post-employment covenants, help you bring a claim in the employment tribunal, and provide up-to-date legal guidance throughout.
