When you have been told you are ‘being made redundant’, it can be a shocking and stressful time filled with worry about your financial future and how you will pay your bills until you find a new job.

Whether you have just been put at risk of redundancy, are in the midst of the redundancy process, or if you have already been made redundant, our experienced and friendly solicitors are here to help you understand your legal rights and ensure you receive a settlement that is legal, fair and what you deserve.

We offer fixed fees that can be put on a flexible monthly payment schedule to suit your budget. Note: Check your homeowner insurance policy to see if you have legal expenses coverage for employment claims.

How we can help you with your redundancy:

  • Advise you throughout the process, from start to finish
  • Help you prepare for your redundancy consultation meetings
  • Advise you on how to appeal against any decision to make you redundant
  • Advise you on whether you have been made redundant unfairly, and if you have a potential
  • Employment Tribunal claim.

Note: Strict time limits apply for bringing any claims against your employer in the Employment Tribunal after being made redundant – so please contact us urgently!

Price Transparency

If you feel your employers have treated you unfairly and you would like advice on what to do next we offer a fixed fee advice consultation for £500+VAT. During this meeting not only will you get detailed legal advice on your specific situation but we will also advise you of any potential future costs, should you choose to instruct us to act on your behalf, and we can set up a flexible payment plan to suit your budget.

Important Note on Legal Fees: if you have home insurance, it is worth looking closely at your policy as it may include employment legal expenses coverage which would cover all of our consultation fees.  

Where you can get free employment law advice

Not everyone is in a position to pay for legal advice when they are having a dispute with their employer, if this is the position you are in there are two organisations that you can contact for help that will not charge you for initial advice:

Acas – the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service: They work with millions of employers and employees every year to improve workplace relationships. They are an independent public body that receives funding from the government and are a great starting point for employees and employers to get free advice.

Citizen’s Advice Bureau: They are a national charity and network of local charities that offer confidential advice online, over the phone, and in person, for free. Most cities and towns will have an office that you can visit or call, or visit their website for general advice you can read online.
