If you need help with your employment contract

If you’ve got a question about your rights at work, your employment contract might hold the answer. Some contracts are easier to read than others, and certain clauses might be difficult to understand. Do you still have rights if you don’t have a written contract? Is your employer allowed to change your terms and conditions and make you sign a new contract? And do you have any rights if you have accepted an offer but not yet started the job?

Instructing solicitors can be expensive

Navigating employment contracts can be a headache, and the bill for a firm of solicitors might make you feel even worse. Most people just want someone independent to talk to about their contract - to help them understand what it means in simple language. The sooner you take advice, the easier it can be to get a better outcome. 

How we can help

Our solicitors can explain what your contract means, what it must contain, and what you can do if it doesn’t hit the mark. If you’ve not got a contract yet because you weren’t chosen for a job, or had an offer withdrawn, we can explain your rights. And if you’re being asked to sign a new contract to get promoted, or to keep your job, we can walk you through your options. Whatever your problem, our solicitors are here to help. We’ll guide you through the process of talking to your employer, let you know whether you might have a claim, and explain the process you need to follow. We’ll:

  • listen to what’s happened
  • help you understand your contract, and your rights
  • discuss your options and the time limits for bringing any claims
