Answers and guidance for UK employment law issues


Every country must draft regulations to prevent exploitation in the workplace, and the UK is no exception. Labour laws for employees are designed to protect the rights of workers to wages and contracts, periods of vacation and leave, shelter from discrimination, and the rights of workers to bargain collectively through trade unions.


But having a set of job regulations in place to protect workers doesn’t mean that you won’t have conflicts and disputes. When you think an employer or employee has violated UK employment law, it’s easy to get confused over the details.


If you're involved in a dispute over UK employment law and you have questions, the legal Experts on JustAnswer can quickly help you sort out your problem and determine your best course of action. You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you’re completely satisfied.

The qualified Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to employment law questions like:


  • I was charged with theft from an employer and just found out I’m going to Magistrates court next week. What should I expect?
  • Can my client sue their client for nonpayment, despite not having a signed TOB and not having requested an interim payment before the conclusion of the matter?
  • I am very unhappy with the service provided by my UK lawyer. Is it possible for me to avoid paying these final bills?
  • If I didn't make it through a 6-month probation, do restrictive covenants in my contract still apply?
  • I'm going through the employment tribunal procedure against former employer for constructive dismissal, but I think they've changed their company name to avoid payout. Is that possible?

In order to assist you with the right information, the legal Expert will need to know a little about your situation. You should be prepared to answer questions such as:


  • What is the nature of the dispute?
  • Has anything been filed or reported?
  • Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full-time or part-time?
  • Do you have any legal documents related to the dispute at the ready?

With this information, you will be ready to have a constructive session with the Expert.
