Employment solicitors that you can rely on
We understand how stressful it can be when a conflict arises between you and your employer. When employment disputes escalate you need an expert employment solicitor that you can trust. The expertise at McCartan Turkington Breen is so trusted that we are the appointed solicitors of Northern Ireland’s largest trade union, NIPSA. We have helped many unionised and non-unionised employees in Northern Ireland resolve their employment matters and we can help you too.
Our team of employment solicitors can help you in the following ways:
- Represent your best interests, not those of your employer.
- Reach a speedy and satisfactory resolution.
- Limit further damage to your relationship with your employer, if possible.
- Ensure you are awarded any damages that you are owed or entitled to.
We know how stressful it is when your livelihood is in jeopardy. Our mission is to reach the best possible outcome for you in your specific set of circumstances. This might be achieved through advising you or in more serious instances, acting on your behalf.
We will ensure your rights are protected and that you are awarded any appropriate compensation that you are owed. However, in cases where you wish to resume employment, we will proceed in a manner that limits damage to your relationship with your employer.
The employment legal process in Belfast & Northern Ireland
We will keep you up to date throughout the duration of your case. The process differs from case to case, but you can rest assured that your employment solicitor is continually working towards getting you the best resolution as quickly as possible.
Your solicitor will ensure you are fully aware of any risks and fees. We exercise cost transparency and can work with you to provide the best solution in your given circumstance. For example, your employment case may be covered by your house insurance. If it is, you are entitled to your solicitor of choice.
Industrial Tribunal Northern Ireland Solicitors
Our employment law experts will do everything in their power to conclude your case swiftly without the necessity of proceeding to the Industrial Tribunal or Fair Employment Tribunal. When this is not possible, your solicitor will advise you on how to proceed and represent your interests to the Tribunal if you instruct them to. We have an envious record of success at Tribunal and have been involved in numerous high profile and widely reported cases.
