Our Unfair Dismissal Lawyers can help...
Not all employers follow correct legal process when it comes to dismissal, grievances or redundancy and this can lead to claims of unfair, wrongful or constructive dismissal. You can count on us to act quickly and assiduously – even while the dismissal process is still ongoing – to defend your rights as an employee. Our team of employment solicitors will assist with the negotiation of a settlement agreement, and even represent you during internal meetings, negotiating on your behalf.
Unfair Dismissal – How much will it cost?
Every case is different, which means that the legal costs inevitably vary. But we’ll advise on the best way of approaching your case so that fees are kept to a minimum. In certain very clear-cut situations it will be immediately obvious that you have grounds for legal action and it won’t cost you anything at all to get a decision to take your case forward to an Employment Tribunal.
Appointing the Scott-Moncrieff team as soon as unfair dismissal is suspected will ensure a faster and better outcome. Our employment lawyers offer services for individuals and employers throughout England and Wales, including London, Cardiff, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Northampton, Southampton, Winchester, Brighton, Surrey, Manchester, Liverpool, Wirral, Merseyside, Cheshire and Birmingham.

Speak to our Employment Lawyers about Restrictive Covenants
When you’re starting your own company or simply changing jobs, there’s more than enough to think about and negotiate, without having to deal with a former employer trying to halt your progress.
Restrictive covenants are usually in place for good reason, but many over-step what is lawful and can act as shackles to your progress. Some employers seek to protect their business by restricting where their staff work once they have left the company. You may be left with the false impression that you can’t move to a job which you are legally entitled to take.
Our Employment Lawyers have an excellent track record in over-turning covenants that apply the restrictions too rigidly, giving the employee the freedom to move forward to the job of their choice.
The key to successfully challenging restrictive covenants is speed: call upon our expert employment solicitors immediately and our pro-active team will apply for a prompt injunction to help smooth the road ahead.
