School of Law
Employment Law Clinic
Are you being:
- Discriminated against
- Made redundant
- Harassed or bullied
- Otherwise unfairly treated at work?
We could help. We cannot advise employees of the University, but can advise students, and you can send your friends or family to us with their problems.
The clinic was established to enable law students studying at the University to obtain practical legal experience under the supervision of University staff and provides a free confidential advice service to the local community.
What you can expect from the clinic
An appointment will be made for you to attend the Clinic where you will be interviewed by two Student Advisors. So long as your case is suitable for the clinic, (in rare instances, it may not be) you will receive advice by letter, normally sent to you within four weeks of the interview.
What will it cost?
What service can the clinic offer?
The Clinic advises on employment law. It should be able to help with most concerns about the rights and obligations existing between an employee and his or her employer. This will include:
Discrimination issues: Sex, gender reassignment, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age.
Status issues: Identifying an employee or statutory worker. Identifying the appropriate employer, where the undertaking has been transferred.
Contract issues: National minimum wage and other individual disputes over wages and other contractual terms.
Dismissal claims: Dismissal without notice. Redundancy payment claims. Unfair dismissal, including constructive dismissal.
The Clinic does not advise on state benefits, accident at work claims, equal pay claims and where the University is the employer.
