1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

    It's a complex field, if she isn't in a union then I would suggest a solicitor who deals in employment law and you may find one who offers a free initial consultation.

    Hi Nath, I'll PM you my number, but remember there is a big difference between the law and your wife's contract - if she has one.

    Also worth finding out if your local university has a law school. They often do pro bono work.

    The best advise I'd give anyone is to always make sure you have legal services added/included to your home insurance at an average cost of about £25 - £30 a year as it can give you cover and access to an employment lawyer.

    I used mine about 6 years ago and after contacting my insurance company and after going through with them what I believed was constructive dismissal I was appointed a barrister who specialised in employment law with £50k of cover to represent me against my previous employer.

    The mere threat of seeing my employer in court with this support, doubled their offer on the amount of redundancy I'd previously been offered :) ...….check it out you may pleasantly be surprised.

    Neiled and Terry give good advice ... My wife is in HR in one of the biggest companies in the UK. If you want advice I can ask her. I'm also a company director and have access to our outsourced HR guys who are also very good.

    Happy to help if I can.
