Resolving Disputes with Employers

Any dispute is difficult, but problems at work can make life miserable. Birkett Long will help you to take a practical look at what’s happening and guide you through the options available, so you feel comfortable with the best way forward for you.

As an employee, there are various issues you could face, from redundancy to discrimination. At Birkett Long, we take into account the legal and personal factors, to make sure we understand fully what is at stake and the best course of action.

  • Are you being made redundant?
  • Are you the subject of unfair or wrongful dismissal?
  • Has your employer discriminated against you?
  • Is your employer in breach of their contract with you?
  • Are you facing retirement?
  • Do you need help with a compromise or settlement agreement?

Whatever your requirements, we are happy to offer a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your particular query or concern, and how we might be able to help you. We can offer a fixed or capped fee arrangement in consultation with you, and we will consider 'no win-no fee' arrangements in appropriate cases. In certain circumstances, we can persuade your employer to pay your fees.


Our extensive experience of the judicial systems, including Employment Tribunal, Employment Appeal Tribunal, and the High Court, has achieved many positive results for our clients over a number of years. We have secured significant compensation a variety of different types of claims, from sex and disability discrimination to unfair dismissal awards.
