When you are in work, you can be faced with many difficult issues, so it is important to know what your rights are. We can help you understand your rights at work and support you with problems such as redundancy, dismissal or discrimination.
How we can help
We help many people every year resolve issues relating to pay and entitlements, inform them of parental and carers’ rights or help with processes such as employment tribunals and appeals.
“The adviser was brilliant! He gave clear instructions and good advice. It definitely helped working out my financial problems with a human who understood. I was awarded some charity help with rental arrears due to job/income losses. Hopefully I will be able to find suitable paid work soon.”
We regularly help with:
- Basic work rights for full-time, part-time and agency workers
- Issues with pay and benefits
- Dismissal and redundancy
- Discrimination and dispute resolution
- Holiday and sick pay rules
- Health and safety at work
