Discrimination At Work

Settlement Agreements

Settlement agreements are offered to an employee in exchange for dropping an employment claim against their employer in exchange for compensation. They are common in the context of a dismissal and our team have vast experience handling settlement agreements.

Wrongful and Unfair Dismissal

All employees have the right not to be unfairly dismissed and, at Barrett and Co, we have a proven track record of supporting those who have been. Our employment law solicitors will work on your behalf to ascertain whether you have been unfairly dismissed, maintaining clean and consistent communication with you throughout the process.

Constructive Dismissal

Constructive dismissal is a complex legal concept that arises when an employer breaches the employment contract in such a way that it forces the employee to resign. In these cases, the breach is considered a ‘fundamental breach’ of the contract, and it provides the employee with a legitimate reason to leave their job.

Employment Tribunals

An Employment Tribunal is a legal forum where disputes related to employment rights and issues between employees and employers are resolved. These tribunals are independent judicial bodies and play a crucial role in upholding and enforcing employment laws.
