Many even do privately funded work as well as work funded by insurers. Subject to eligibility, in some cases they may be able to provide free advice and assistance under the Legal Help Scheme. We have not been awarded a “Specialist Quality Mark” in the employment law category by the government’s Legal Services Commission.

In addition to Employment Tribunal cases and cases in the civil courts, solicitors can act for workers in other types of proceedings, e.g. disciplinary matters at the Nursing and Midwifery Council and or the Health Professions Council, or security clearance cases at the Security Vetting Appeals Panel. We are a specialist legal advice centre in dealing with cases involving issues of discrimination, civil liberties or human rights.
