Every year we act for hundreds of Clients who have been treated unfairly by their employers and get them the justice they deserve.
Employment Matters and it matters to us!
We are Employment Law specialists which means that you get advice from experts in Employment Law not simply general practitioners who may not be up to speed with the complexities of employment law.
How do I know if I have a Claim?
If you have a gut feeling that something is wrong in work, we would advise that your gut instinct is always correct. But why risk it? Fill out our form and a member of our Employment Matters staff will call you back and discuss your issue over the phone. Often, these issues can be rectified through mediation or simply talking things out with your employer without ever having to go to the Workplace Relations Commission.
- If you don’t have a copy, ask for a copy of the company handbook and familiarise yourself with it. A lot of the questions you may want the answers to may be in there.
- Read your contract! Don’t feel guilty, we all just read our contract once, sign it and then never look at it again. But should you have questions about Annual Leave, Working Hours or pay, it very well could be printed in black and white there.
- Exhaust the company grievance procedure. If you don’t have a copy, ask for it. The grievance procedure tells you the steps involved in resolving your issue internally. If you were to go on to claim Constructive Dismissal in the Workplace Relations Commission, an Adjudicator will want to see that you have exhausted the grievance procedure before resigning.
- Fill in our form and give as much detail as your can about your employment issue. This way a member of our staff can have as much information as possible prepared for you in advance of your call.
