Employment Law

Unfair Dismissal and Employee Advice Dorset

Employment law is one of the most complex areas of law and due to increased legislation is constantly changing.

If you're having problems at work, feel you've been treated unfairly, discriminated against or bullied, or are simply not sure of your rights, Coles Miller's specialist employment lawyers are here to offer comprehensive advice on a wide variety of employment issues.

Our expert employment law solicitors, based in Poole, Dorset offer a personal, efficient and effective employment law service and will ensure that your employment rights are safeguarded at all times. They understand the issues facing you and will ensure that you take the appropriate steps right from the start. You need to be aware that the law imposes strict time deadlines, so you need to act immediately. For example, employees only have three months, less one day, from the date of dismissal to begin an Employment Tribunal action, even if they are pursuing an internal appeal. Our employment lawyers are skilled at negotiating and regularly achieve substantial settlements for our clients. Where this is not possible, we represent our clients when their claims are heard in the Employment Tribunal.
