Griffin Law is experienced in acting for individual claimants before employment tribunals who have the benefit of legal expenses insurance (often as part of their domestic buildings or contents policies, or even as part of their car insurance), as well as acting for claimants under contingency fee agreements (although we will ordinarily charge a fixed fee at the outset for reviewing a prospective client’s papers).
Time is always of the essence when it comes to employment disputes: you usually only have three months to bring a tribunal claim. Know your rights. And let us help you enforce them.
We are also able to advise you in respect of your rights under the Equality Act 2010. This protects your right not to be discriminated against on grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital status, civil partnerships, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. Those who discriminate against you – be they employers, service providers or others covered by the Equality Act 2010 – must prove that their conduct was not discriminatory. The burden of proof is reversed in your favour as complainant.
