Wrongful Dismissal

Wrongful Dismissal, also know as Breach of Contract, is a claim based on the contract of employment. The contract does not have to be in written form.

How can we help?

It can take the form of an oral contract or alternatively come into existence as a result of the conduct of the parties. An employee has a right to be given notice of termination of his contract of employment in circumstances other than that of gross misconduct. The correct notice period can either be set out in a written contract or, if the contract is silent on the point or there is no written contract, implied by legislation. The minimum notice period for an employee who has worked more than one month but less than two years is one week. After two years’ service, an employee is entitled to a week’s notice for every year that they have worked up to a total of 12 weeks. If you feel that you have been given inadequate notice, please contact one of the employment law team.

If an employer changes the terms of an employee’s contract without their prior agreement then this may, in itself, be a breach of the contract of employment. If you believe that your employer has changed the terms of your contract to your detriment, then please contact one of the Employment Law team.

Another term which is implied into every contract of employment is the mutual term of trust and confidence between the employer and employee. In short, an employer or employee must not do anything to seriously damage their relationship without good reason. If you feel that your employer has acted in breach of their duty of trust and confidence then please contact one of the Employment Law team on 020 7228 0017.

Family & Divorce

Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.

Your great patience was much appreciated, your lovely approach to people made me feel like a friend rather than a client- that makes the trauma of divorce easier to get through. Thank you again for everything.

I just wanted to thank you for all the time, effort and meticulous attention to detail regarding my case over the past year or so.  You are always prepared to go the extra mile, working long hours and your ability to recall the smallest and often most significant details amongst a wealth of facts in my highly complex case never ceases to amaze me.  I appreciate all you have done and the manner in which you conducted my case and liaised with me throughout. It was very reassuring to have you on my side.  I do not know what I would have done without you.
