Employment Law Solicitors

Your Rights as an Employee

Employment law is in place to protect both employees and employers. As employee rights specialists, Howells are here to help guide, support and represent those who have grievances with their employer. The workplace can be fraught with complicated, tangled-up issues. If you feel you’ve been the victim of poor treatment, you deserve to have your voice heard and to receive the correct compensation.

Our experts have the experience, knowledge and skill required to fight your corner. We are a large firm with offices in Cardiff, Swansea, Newport, Caerphilly and Talbot Green, yet we provide the personal service of a much smaller company. We strive to get to know you, your situation and your needs thoroughly, ensuring a clear, comfortable service which comprehensively addresses your requirements.

Have My Employee Rights Been Breached?

There are many issues which can arise in working life which may be a breach of your employee rights and of employment laws. These issues may include:

Wrongful dismissal

If you feel that you have been unfairly dismissed, you have a right to complain to an employment tribunal. There are a great many cases in which unfair dismissals take place. A few of the most common examples include:
  • An employer has no fair reason for your dismissal (i.e. your job performance is flawless)
  • An employer fails to follow the correct dismissal process
  • An employer dismisses you for an illegal reason (i.e. request for maternity leave)
Bullying, Harassment and Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace is absolutely unacceptable. Here at Howells we fight your corner if you have received unfair treatment due to your gender, sexual orientation, family circumstances (pregnancy, civil partnerships etc.), disability, race, ethnic background, religion, nationality or age.

Illegal Working Practices

Employment laws are in place to protect staff from illegal working practices. If your employer is forcing you to work in illegal conditions (from not allowing rest periods to enforcing overtime), this behaviour must be stopped. Speak to our sensitive and experienced team to find out how.
