Employment law is constantly evolving. Our team of experienced UK employment law solicitors is committed to protecting you and your business from the full raft of employment law issues in the workplace.

Their specialist expertise, and proven track record, in employment law extends to fighting constructive dismissal and unfair dismissal claims, right through to making sure you adhere to employee rights in redundancy.

Based in Leeds, Harrogate and Pontefract, we pride ourselves on providing you with good, efficient, fast and local advice on employment law.

This includes working with you to present the strongest possible employment law defence when an employee decides to pursue his or her case through an employment tribunal, if necessary.

There have been recent changes to employment law that impact on you. There are now no fees payable by an employee in lodging a case and claim against your business in front of an employment tribunal – and this has led to an increase in employment tribunal hearings.

We represent clients in a full range of employment tribunal claims such as:

  • Breach of contract
  • Discrimination
  • Equal pay
  • Unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal
  • Unlawful deduction from wages
  • TUPE
  • Redundancy
  • Whistleblowing

Our employment lawyers specialise in all forms of discrimination in the workplace – race discrimination; sex discrimination; religious discrimination; disability discrimination; and age discrimination.

Legal advice on redundancy, dismissal (both unfair dismissal and constructive dismissal), employment contracts, and settlement agreements represents another cornerstone of our employment law practice.

You can read about all the latest Milners’ news, including employment law, on our website. And you can also download our employment law newsletter.
