Over the years, the number of rights employees have has increased dramatically. Yet we still find that many people are not aware of how far the law protects them. Even where the employee is aware of his/her rights, they are then faced with the question of how they go about enforcing them without ending up in a much worse situation.
At Morecrofts, we find that our Employment Law work in Liverpool and the North West is focused upon negotiating a satisfactory resolution to a dispute at an early stage. Sometimes this will be through advising an employee on the terms of a settlement agreement that they have received from their employer. Our main aim is to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients, without incurring unnecessary costs in the process.
We always ensure that at the initial meeting, we find out our client’s preferred outcome. We can then give our clients a realistic assessment of what they might expect to achieve. Once we have agreed this objective, we can start taking action to reach the desired end result.
We realise that when your employment is under threat or when you have been dismissed, the thought of paying a large sum in legal costs is a terrifying thought. That is why we will agree with you how much you are prepared to spend at the first stage, so that we keep within your budget and so that you avoid any nasty shocks.
The feedback we receive from our clients is that the benefit gained from our advice and assistance far outweighs the cost of our service. In fact, many people who come to us for advice at a late stage in their dispute tell us that they wish they had come to see us much sooner.
