Employment Advice line

Wednesday 12 – 2pm
Friday 12 – 2pm
You can also complete our online form and we will get back to you.
We can offer legal advice if you are experiencing problems in the following areas:
Unfair dismissal, discrimination, redundancy, maternity or parental rights, health and safety, changes in working hours and conditions, unpaid wages, bullying and any other employment-related matter.
We may also be able to help you to negotiate your terms and conditions and levels of compensation in relation to your settlement agreement to end your employment.
If you are having problems at work, you may need advice and assistance so that you know your legal rights and entitlements. We can provide you with advice and information whether you are an employee, agency worker, casual or contract worker. We offer an initial appointment to give advice about some of the following:
- Do I need a contract of employment?
- What is the minimum I can expect to be paid by my employer?
- Can I be dismissed when I am on sick leave?
- Can I claim compensation if I have been unfairly dismissed?
- What should I do if I have been discriminated against at work?
- What should I do if I am being bullied or harassed at work?
- What are my rights if I work part-time or on a fixed term contract?
- What rights do I have at work when I am having a baby?
What to expect when you come to see us with an employment issue
We understand the time constraints in relation to employment matters and always aim to address your concerns quickly and efficiently.
We can talk you through all the options and help you to find a way of working with us that works for you. As a charity, our intention is to cover our costs, so you can be assured that we will help you to decide what is best for you.
Due to our very limited resources and the many inquiries we receive, please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee to take on a particular case. However, we will offer one-off advice where possible and signpost to an appropriate service where necessary.
Wednesday Drop-in Employment Clinic
Please note the drop-in is suspended during Coronavirus and replaced by a telephone advice line (details at the top of this page)
The employment drop-ins will be held on Wednesdays between 12 pm to 2pm. An appointment is NOT required to attend for employment advice during these times.
The aim of these drop-in sessions is to offer one-off advice. If you wish to pursue a case, we will signpost you to a relevant agency so you can do this.
