Disputes regarding employment can be stressful, especially when the employee feels the need to resign their position, which is why Hodgkinsons Solicitors are here to help. If you are concerned that your employer is not treating you in accordance with the terms set out in your employment Contract, or that your employee is not fulfilling their duties as proposed by the Contract, let Hodgkinsons help you to resolve your Employment Contract Dispute.

A Contract of employment is a legally binding document which sets out the terms and conditions of your employment which is why it is important to understand your rights and responsibilities in the workplace. A Contract will set out details such as your working hours, pay, holiday entitlement, bonuses, commission, sickness absence, sick pay and notice period. There are various reasons why an employee or employer may raise a dispute regarding a Contract of employment. It is not uncommon for disputes to arise when there has been a breach of Contract, in which one party breaks the terms of the Contract, or if the employer tries to change a Contract without agreement from the employee. Common types of Employment Contract Disputes often include:

  • An increase in workload or responsibility
  • Unfair Treatment
  • Redundancy
  • Harassment
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Discrimination
  • Unfair Deductions from Pay
  • Unclear Job Role
  • Poor work environment
