Employment Law Cases

Referrals can be made from organisations whose clients live, work, or study in Southwark. 

The centres specialise in cases of Unfair Dismissal, Race, Religion, Sex, Sexual Orientation and Disability discrimination.

Examples of Cases we will take on:

  • Unfair Dismissal including: incapacity, misconduct, redundancy and assertion of a relevant Statutory Right.
  • Age, Race, Religion, Sex, Sexual Orientation, Transgender and Disability Discrimination Cases.
  • Equal Pay.
  • Minimum Wage.
  • Working Time Regulations.
  • Parental and Exceptional Leave.
  • Human Rights Act.
  • Goods and Services cases.

Cases we would not normally take on:

  • Straightforward unlawful deduction/breach of contract/holiday pay cases.
  • Cases where the applicant already has obtained representation through membership of a Trade Union.

All referrals need to be made as soon as possible preferably in good time for us to draft the initial tribunal application.  We are unlikely to be able to take on cases at short notice when a hearing date has already been fixed.
