A Midlands lawyer is urging employers to settle flexible working requests with their staff as soon...
The mfg Employment Law team are experienced employment law solicitors, offering a wide range of employment law advice to employees across the West Midlands, including Worcestershire and Shropshire.
We are ranked by The Legal 500 and won the Worcestershire Law Society’s prestigious award for Employment Law firm of the Year in 2017. We are also members of the Employment Lawyers Association.
Work is a large and important part of your life. We know being a worker is not always easy going, especially when a difficult situation puts your happiness and financial security at risk. Whether you are a company director needing advice on your rights and obligations, or a junior employee wanting help with a difficult situation at work, as experienced employment solicitors, we can help.
If you have a dispute with your employer, you need fast, effective and expert advice from the outset, together with careful negotiation which can often result in issues being resolved without the need to make a claim to the Employment Tribunal.
In employment law, there is only a limited amount of time for you to act, usually three months less a day from the date of dismissal, discrimination or breach of contract to preserve your employment rights. Therefore if you have a claim against your employer, it is vital you act quickly in order to protect your position.
Before you can issue proceedings, you must notify ACAS of a potential claim and start the Early Conciliation process. We can take care of the Early Conciliation process for you, giving you the best chance to settle your dispute.
In cases where negotiation is not possible or where we believe the settlement offered is not adequate, we can assist in submitting a claim to the Employment Tribunal. Our specialists will ensure your claim is handled effectively and professionally.
