Employment Law Solicitors for Individuals

Employment law solicitors

COVID-19 has left employees with many questions regarding furlough, redundancy and parental leave.

We can advise individuals on redundancy packages, furlough arrangements and parental leave. We are also experienced in reviewing Settlement Agreements, and applying for Protective Awards.

If you feel you have been treated unfairly by a current or former employer, it is worth speaking to a specialist Employment Lawyer to find out where you stand.

I was recommended to Verisona Law by a friend who is a property lawyer with regard to an employment issue. My initial phone conversation with Sue Ball and following meeting and phone queries were dealt with in a relaxed, but, informed manner. Nothing seemed too much trouble. I would recommend Verisona Law to anyone who is seeking employment advice.

Sue was easy to deal with and offered all options available. Jane was in contact beforehand to tell me what information was needed and Sue was prepared for our meeting. I cannot praise Sue and Jane enough and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sue and her team.

Experienced HR Lawyers

We can give you an honest assessment and if you have a case, make a claim for you, dealing with the employer and following the legal steps required to settle or bring a tribunal claim.

As experienced HR lawyers we know how and where to obtain information to support your case – and how to counter the tactics some employers will use to put you off.

Bringing an employment claim may seem like a daunting prospect, but faced with a strong case, many employers will happily settle early, to avoid legal costs and protect their reputations.

To speak to an employment law expert or to book an appointment at our Portsmouth or Waterlooville office, please contact Sue Ball on 023 9231 2053 or email sue.ball@verisonalaw.com.
