Many employment claims fail because people leave it too late. For example, if your employer changes part of your job without asking you, then your employer is entitled to assume that you have accepted those changes if you do not make an official complaint within a reasonable period of time, which could be as short as just four weeks after the changes have been made.
Many employees do not make complaints because they worry that it will affect their future employment prospects.
Our experience is that most complaints can be resolved by discussions between the employee and the employer, including agreeing a reference if the employee decides to move on. Unfortunately, Employment Law is complicated and keeps changing, which results in both employers and employees misunderstanding their legal positions.
We have the experience and knowledge to understand your problem and find a solution that works for you.
