Employment Legal Advice - Monthly recap from September

  • Wednesday, September 7, 2022

Our ELA team offer free employment-related legal advice and support to Greater Manchester residents. The team can assist you with issues including settlement agreements, completing ET1 forms, schedules of loss, arranging Mckenzie Friend service and preparation for the tribunal day, all with a no win no fee representation. Not all employment issues require the individual to have 2 years of continual service. Over the month of August, some of the issues the team has been able to help with include dismissal in probation, restrictive covenants, bonuses, delayed start dates, long-term sickness, and TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings – Protection of Employment).
