For most of us, work is where we spend a great deal of our lives. No matter the size of the company or the industry you work in, you expect to be treated with respect when you enter the workplace. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
At Franklins, our employment solicitors believe that everybody deserves fairness and equality in their workplace, and we work everyday to ensure this happens for employees of all backgrounds and types of companies. When problems arise in the workplace, your first step should be to seek specialist legal advice to stop the conflict from escalating further. That’s where we come in. From our vast experience and expertise in employment law, we can help you to understand your rights as an employee and your legal position in a dispute at an early stage. This will help you to strengthen your claim and ensure that measures are taken to compensate you.
Whether you are facing redundancy, unfair dismissal or are being bullied or harassed in the workplace our duty as employment solicitors is to protect your interests at all costs. From day one, we’ll take the time to understand the dynamics of your workplace and your situation in order to provide detailed advice that’s tailored to your needs.

With the world of employment law in constant state of flux, having a team of experts on your side to bring a claim against your employer will put you at a great advantage. Services we provide include, but are not limited to:
Being made redundant is an undeniably stressful time, and it’s likely that you’ll have serious concerns regarding your future and career. Whether the redundancy has come as a surprise or as a result of a merger or acquisition, it’s our job as employment solicitors to protect your employment and ensure your rights are respected through any business decision. Our solicitors are well versed in redundancy and can provide advice on compensation and assist you through negotiation for an improved termination package.
Problems inevitably arise between employee and employer and, although best resolved informally, often need to be dealt with on a more formal basis.
Your employer should have properly-drafted disciplinary and grievance procedures in place, to clearly set out how you would deal with such an issue. If your employer fails to follow a procedure or there is not one in place, it’s worthwhile to seek legal advice regarding your position.
If you have been dismissed unfairly from your current employment, you may wish to dispute the dismissal with your employer. The best thing to do in this situation is to get in touch with our team of specialist employment solicitors to discuss the circumstances around your dismissal, as you may be entitled to compensation. If your dismissal stems from bullying and harassment or you believe your employer has dismissed you without following the necessary procedure, our employment solicitors will provide expert advice and representation to help secure compensation.
Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms and can cause a great deal of upset for the victim involved. In a professional environment, nobody expects to be singled out for their age, race, sexual orientation or gender. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon across workplaces in the UK. At Franklins, we believe in standing up for those who have suffered through discrimination in the workplace. With on-going support, practical advice and representation, you can rest assured that Franklins will take the necessary legal action to ensure you aren’t faced with this treatment again.
At Franklins, our aim is to protect the interests of all employees – no matter who they work for. Work is rarely plain sailing, however, employers should always respect the rights of their staff and no employee should face unfair treatment on a daily basis.
