Useful information

Frequently asked questions

What can an employment lawyer do for me?

An employment lawyer, or employment solicitor, is a legal specialist who focuses on the world of work. They deal with relationships between employers, their staff and – sometimes – trade unions.

Your employment lawyer can offer advice to help resolve disagreements and problems in the workplace. For example, they can help with claims of unfair dismissal, harassment, discrimination and negligent disciplinary procedures.

If necessary, they can also help you construct a strong case for an employment tribunal. This is a specialist legal body that deals with workplace disputes.

Is it worth getting an employment lawyer?

Workplace disagreements can be scary. As an individual, it’s easy to feel powerless against your current or former employer.

A good employment lawyer can help redress this balance. They can provide the advice and legal expertise you need to challenge your employer on a level playing field.

So if you feel like you’ve been unfairly treated at work, it’s worth considering contacting an employment lawyer. At the very least, they can advise you of your rights and help you know where you stand.

How do I find a good employment lawyer?

Choosing a solicitor is a big decision. So while we’d love you to work with us, we still recommend that you take your time and choose a law firm that’s right for you.

You might want to ask yourself, “what’s their reputation?”, “where are they based?” and “what do they specialise in?”.

The Milners employment team is made up of experienced professionals with a track record for providing clear, straight-talking advice. We can help with all aspects of employment law, with particular specialisms in workplace discrimination, redundancy, dismissal and settlement agreements.

How much does an employment lawyer cost?

At Milners, we pride ourselves on offering top-tier legal advice at a sensible price. So while fees can vary depending on the nature and complexity of your case, you shouldn’t feel intimidated by the prospect of payment.

Please get in touch for a free initial consultation, where we’ll discuss your case in detail and advise on expected fees.

A note on settlement agreements: usually, your employer is expected to pay some – or all – of your legal fees. So if you’re offered a settlement agreement, you might not have to pay anything at all.
