I’ve been dismissed, made redundant, accused of misconduct at work, been bullied/harassed/discriminated against. I need help: what do I do?
Your first step should be to get some legal advice from someone who knows what they’re talking about. There are numerous sources of legal advice around – just look on Google for instance. You may have access to a legal helpline via an insurance policy, or you could go to your local Citizens Advice Bureau or Law Centre. Failing all that you could go and see a solicitor. The best option is to ask friends, family or colleagues for a personal recommendation but make sure that the solicitor they recommend specialises in the type of law you’re concerned with. A solicitor who specialises in property work may not know that much about employment law (and vice-versa).
