about us

The information on this site was created by one of the UK's leading employment lawyers. It was written to be easy to understand and gain help from.

Whilst it contains a great deal of inormation, you should also consider seeking legal advice to ensure you get the best outcome for your case.

I have created this site as I believe that we should be treated fairly by employers and hopefully this site will help you get the best solution to your employment problems by understanding the issues and finding a specialist employment law solicitor ideally suited to your needs.

This site was first created in 2004 and has had over one million visitors.

Since 2004, when we founded this site we have helped thousands of people with employment issues. If you do nothing about your employment problems then things can only end in your employers favour - probably not what you want. With the experience of thousands of cases we can help you fight your case and get a good result. We used to be able to help further on this web site, but from 2018 the Ministry of Justice rules means we now cannot - a daft rule as the site was created to help people with practical advice - so to address this we have written a book -

We have just written a new book about employment law.
You can buy it on Amazon for just £5 and keep it on your Kindle, iPhone or PC. You can buy it here -
