Employment Law

Whether it is a dispute with employees or an employer, you have been made redundant or simply wish our team to peruse any employment contracts you put together, our legal team are able to help with any employment law related needs.

Being made redundant and receiving a compromise agreement can be a very stressful time for an employee and they will require legal assistance in order to finalise this process without personal loss to themselves. Our employment team will explain all parts of the compromise agreement, explaining what the employee is to receive and their legal rights under this document. Our team will take the pressure out of the situation and will argue for the best deal for the employee. Being made redundant is never a good time for anybody, but V E White & Co. can reduce the stress involved and get the best possible outcome for our clients with our diligent approach.

When a client is being victimised, harassed or has even been dismissed from their job with no viable reason for this, our team will ensure that the employee is treated fairly and receives everything which is owed to them by their employer for allowing this situation to deteriorate. Our employment team are understanding to each individual situation and will ensure that all parties receive what they are entitled to, whilst offering any help and assistance required by the client at all stages of their matter.
