Employment law advice for employees and workers in Newark

Employees and workers have clearly defined legal rights which are enshrined in law. This means that your employer must treat you fairly, and they must respect your employment rights. If you believe you have been treated unfairly or have a concern about exactly what your legal rights are, it is important to seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible.

At Chattertons, our friendly highly skilled employment law solicitors will be happy to advise you. We want to make sure your employment rights are protected and, if your employer has done something wrong, we can help to make things right. We can provide clear, straightforward advice on your employment rights and the steps you can take to resolve disputes.

In many cases, employment disputes can be resolved quickly and amicably if you have the right advice and a clear understanding of your position. It might be as simple as informing your employer of your rights and the action you would like them to take, or you may need to escalate matters if your employer is unwilling to cooperate.
