Employment Law - EMPLOYEES

At KPM we have a pragmatic specialist employment team to represent and support you.

We offer a free, no obligation 30 minute initial consultation (this doesn’t mean you have to come in to see us because we are happy to advise by telephone and email).  During this meeting we get to grips with your employment problem and suggest the way forward.  We will determine whether you have a valid claim against your employer, what steps we can take for you in attempting to resolve the issue and tell you the costs involved. We will also be very frank about the potential pitfalls and expenses that could be incurred if you don’t have a particularly strong case, and we will set out the reasons for not pursuing the matter further.

There may be funding options available to you, for example, not only hourly rates, but fixed fees for Compromise Agreements (and which cost may be met by your employer), or Legal Costs Insurance and Family Legal Protection policies which may form part of a house contents insurance, buildings insurance and the like – which you may not be aware of.

We aim to deliver a friendly and personal service to all our clients and will keep you regularly informed about your case.  You can choose the way you would like to be kept informed, whether by letter, email or telephone.

For Employees:-

We realise that many individuals are reluctant to pursue genuine employment grievances or claims against their employers for fear of racking up crippling legal bills, especially at a time when you may already be facing the prospect of loss of income and the stress of impending financial difficulty.

We aim to offer friendly professional law advice and guidance to employees, whether you want to know more about your rights, or something has recently happened to you in your workplace, we can advise on:-

  • Review contracts of employment
  • Compromise agreements
  • Redundancy
  • Wrongful and unfair dismissal
  • Discrimination and harassment
  • Breaches of your data and unlawful use by your employer
  • Employment tribunal claims
