Services to Individuals

Whether you work on the shop floor or in the boardroom we can provide the expertise to achieve the best solution for you.

At Oakland & Co we provide practical advice, assistance and representation to employees and workers in relation to the wide range of issues and problems that arise.

We are experts in Employment Tribunal claims which we can undertake on a privately funded or, where appropriate, on a Damages Based Agreement (No Win No Fee) arrangement or under legal expenses insurance.

If you have been dismissed or are facing disciplinary proceedings we can help.

If you require best advice on the negotiation of a termination package or a compromise agreement we can assist you.

We have considerable experience in advising senior executives and City professionals on a wide range of employment issues.

Areas of Employment Law that we typically handle include:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Redundancy
  • Disability Discrimination
  • Race Discrimination
  • Sex Discrimination
  • Discrimination on the grounds of Religion or Belief
  • Discrimination on the grounds of Sexual Orientation
  • Equal Pay
  • Wrongful Dismissal
  • Breach of Contract
  • Working Time (e.g. holiday entitlement, working hours, breaks)
  • National Minimum Wage
  • Whistleblowing
  • Health & Safety
  • Restrictive Covenants
  • TUPE
  • Maternity / Paternity / Adoption / Flexible Working
  • Employment Appeal Tribunal and Court of Appeal
  • Victimisation for Trade Union activities

Time Limits:  It is always important to act quickly in employment disputes. Proposed claims must be notified to Acas for the mandatory early conciliation process within 3 months of the last act complained of. If no settlement is reached then Acas will issue an early conciliation certificate and any claim then brought must be presented to the Employment Tribunals within a period that is usually no more than 1 month after the date of the certificate.

The fact that you may be going through internal procedures (such as appeals or grievances) before bringing a claim in the Tribunal may not entitle you to an extension of this strict time limit. If you are out of time for bringing a claim you may be left without a remedy.
