Our expertise in employment law

We’re extremely proud to have one of the best teams of employment solicitors Cardiff has to offer. Between them, our experts have decades of experience in handling cases of all kinds. Whatever problem you’re facing, our solicitors can help. Examples of the kinds of cases we deal with include:

Unfair dismissal

If you’ve been dismissed from your job for a reason that you believe is unfair, unreasonable or even discriminatory, we can help you to make a claim for unfair dismissal. Your employer can terminate your employment for a reasonable complaint, such as problems with conduct or capability. However, it’s not lawful to dismiss an employee who has at least two years of continuous service for a reason such as:

  • Membership of a trade union
  • Pregnancy or parental leave
  • A legally protected characteristic - such as disability, gender, age, pregnancy, marital status, religious belief, race or sexual orientation
  • Whistleblowing

The manner in which you are dismissed could also lead to a claim for unfair dismissal. Employers have to follow certain procedures, outlined in your contract of employment. If they breach these terms and don’t follow procedures, this could mean that your employment has been unlawfully terminated.

To discuss your situation and find out if you could claim for unfair dismissal, contact our employment solicitors in Cardiff by calling freephone 0808 175 8000 or use our online enquiry form.

Constructive dismissal

Constructive dismissal is when an employee feels that they’ve no other option but to resign from their employment. This could be because:

  • Their employer has unreasonably changed the terms of their contract - for example, requiring the employee to work nights when their contract stipulates daytime working hours
  • There is a problem with bullying, intimidation or harassment - making the workplace unbearable for the employee
  • The employee is subjected to discrimination at work and is consistently being treated unfairly by the employer

If you’ve experienced a situation like this and your employer consistently fails to address and rectify the problem, you may feel you’ve no choice but to resign. It’s essential to seek legal advice urgently in cases of this kind, preferably before resigning.
