EMPLOYEE SERVICES AND FEES


Employment Agreement Advice

An employer must give every employee a contract. If you have been offered a contract we can advise you on what you may believe are “troublesome clauses” and whether such clauses are appropriate. Some people for example may object to “restraint of trade” clauses or clauses requiring compulsory drug testing.

Disciplinary Meetings

If in the course of your employment you are asked to come to a disciplinary meeting your employer may advise you (and hopefully will) that you have a right to representation. We can advise you of your rights prior to the meeting and also attend the meeting with you.

Personal Grievances

Personal grievances are legal claims against an employer for such things as; unjustified dismissal; unjustified forced resignation (or constructive dismissal); unjustified redundancy dismissal; unjustified “disadvantage” (demotions, cuts in pay etc.); sexual harassment; breach of parental leave legislation or racial discrimination.

These claims can be filed in a relatively low level judicial body called the Employment Relations Authority but you have to attempt mediation first either informally or at the Mediation Service – a part of the Labour Department.

After you contact us we usually write a letter to the employer notifying them of your grievance and then attempt to settle the matter by a private meeting. If this is unsuccessful we arrange a formal mediation at the Mediation Service. About two thirds of mediations result in a settlement.
