Employment

The first thing to know is that we are very good listeners. Whether you’ve been bullied, dismissed, disciplined, discriminated against or treated unfairly, we can support you and help you understand your options.

Karen Bussell: “we are not saying that we’ve heard it all before, but we can say that you are not alone. In fact, the Personal Employment team at Nash & Co is recognised by the Legal 500 for its expertise in employment law; for us it’s all about providing you with the best advice, using plain English where no question or worry is too small.”

Can you help me at work?

Nash & Co deals with the whole spectrum of work-related questions; You may have a question about your existing contract, a new post, holidays and overtime, perhaps you are moving to fixed term or part-time work or you need to know about your entitlement during maternity, paternity or adoption leave and there are often questions when it comes to retirement. Or it may be that you need some insight into your rights in relation to bullying and discrimination on grounds of age, disability, race, sexual orientation, religion or gender including issues arising from gender expression and we can help write a grievance to ensure that employer fully understands your complaint.

And what if I am leaving or have left work?

We also help with all aspects of redundancy, discrimination, unfair dismissal and constructive dismissal, offering the pragmatic advice on your chances of winning at an Employment Tribunal. As experienced negotiators with years of experience of working in employment law, we may be able to secure you a far higher exit pay-out from your employer than you are being offered. And if your employer is selling the business or is insolvent, we can guide you through the red tape to ensure you are treated correctly and are not out of pocket.

We spend a large proportion of our lives at work and for most it’s a good experience; we do the things that we like doing and we receive an income to support us but when things go wrong the workplace can be very harsh – but we can help.
