Employment law affects most of us at some point. It is important to have enough understanding as both an employee or employer.
It is important for employees to know what they and cannot do and their rights in addition to what their employer expects from them.
It is also equally important for the Employer to know what they can and cannot do, what they can and cannot expect from their employee and visa versa.
These rights in the workplace vary depending on your employment contract and the type of job you do.
It is important that you are treated equally and fairly also.
Should you have been dismissed and feel you were not dealt with fairly or in line with your contract you may have a claim against the employer. It may be that you left your work place due to pressure being put on you unfairly. If you wish to seek advice and speak to us contact N K Law Solicitors Ltd as we may be able to assist you in
gaining compensation, or even your work back.
We may be able to assist you on issues of:
- Salary Disputes
- Wrongful dismissal

Our pricing will be according to our agreement with you and may charge on a percentage of damages recovered which we will be set to 35% depending on the facts and risks of your case. WE provide a free initial consultation.
Depending on your issue we may offer the following funding options:
Fixed Fee Charges:
Our Employment Solicitor fixed fees start from £150 including VAT for an initial assessment of your employment issue by a 20 minute phone call.
We will then get an overview and direct you further as to moving forward including costing.
Please call our office or message us through our website and we shall return to you.
The telephone call does not include going through your documents.
If you then instruct us to represent you for settlement negotiations through ACAS Early Conciliation or directly with your employer our fees start from £400 including VAT.
Settlement negotiations through ACAS Early Conciliation will usually be completed within 1 month.
This allows you to receive advice and legal support you need with the certainty of an agreed fixed cost for each stage of your claim.
We may need to instruct a Barrister or a medical expert to support your claim. These fees are disbursements and are in addition to our fees and shall discuss this with you beforehand.
We encourage Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) where possible and mediation and ACAS conciliation instead of rushing to formal litigation as sometimes matters settle quicker this route although not always.
Depending on the case we may decide to deal with your case on a damages based agreement basis or no win no fee.
Conditional Fee Agreement (‘No Win No Fee’): There is no financial risk to you. If you lose your case you will not have to pay for Solicitors fees and this is the risk we take on your behalf. If we win your case we take a percentage of the damages (up to 25%).
We will assess risk involved in the case also and advise you accordingly. The risk will also be assessed with a decision being made during the consultation.
Damages based agreement: We may decide to carry out work based on this type of agreement in which you will be liable for our costs only on successful recovery of damage however will have to pay disbursements if requested. On conclusion we will deduct up to 35% for our costs as will be agreed in advance.
We may decide to carry out work on an hourly basis cost but will be agreed in advance:
