Expert legal advice for when you have a problem at work.
"I really appreciated your advice, particularly in the hearing in what was a long and tiring day for everyone."
What is PAL?
Good jobs with fair employment practices can be fulfilling and enjoyable. But sometimes things go wrong. Employment law is complex and it can feel very lonely if an issue arises that you need to deal with – sometimes with little time to prepare.
PAL is a service that offers specialist advice and support for those people who have a problem at work, including providing trade union representation at work meetings. The service is designed specifically for those workers in non-unionised organisations who may not have considered joining a trade union before.
High Street solicitors may not deal regularly with employment cases and they do not have the right to represent you in your workplace, for example at a grievance or disciplinary hearing. With PAL we offer immediate expert advice from advisors with specialist experience in workplace issues who can also represent you in workplace hearings.
Who provides the service?
The PAL service is provided by a specialist team with sound knowledge and experience of advising on employment law.
"Your advice and support was really useful in playing back to the employer many points that absolutely highlighted the indefensiveness of the allegations made."
