Employment Law

Employment Law governs the relationship between employers, employees and trade unions.


The Scenario

Perhaps you feel discriminated against at work, have received a complaint from an employee, or maybe you’re thinking of leaving your job due to an inappropriate manager and don’t know where to start. Employment law covers issues ranging from harassment, unfair dismissal and holding employers accountable for their actions.
