We understand the impact that problems at work can have on you. We appreciate the stress that can be caused by not understanding your employment rights. If we are acting for you we want to ensure that you understand where you stand at every step of the way. Blacks’ Employment Team always strives to provide a service that is second to none.

We advise on all aspects of employment law. On a daily basis we act for employees in the Employment Tribunal on a range of claims from unfair dismissal to discrimination and harassment. We are proud of our very high success rate and have achieved great results for our clients.

Our focus is on getting the right result for all our clients, whether taking a claim through to an Employment Tribunal hearing or negotiating the best terms for an exit. Practical and commercial advice that is right for you lies at the heart of everything we do.

Many people are put off because they are afraid of the cost of seeking legal advice. At Blacks we are always transparent about our charges at the outset of any matter. In certain circumstances we are able to offer our services on a no-win, no-fee basis or via an insurance policy.
