Employment Law FAQ’s Answered

Posted on by Grant Smith

As you drag yourself out of bed each morning it can be difficult to see why you have too, but unfortunately for everyone working is just something that has to be done in order for the bills to be paid at the end of each month. For both yourself as an employer and the people that you work for as an employee there can be a huge amount of legalities to get your head around, and it’s understandable if you get a little confused every now and again with the ins and outs of it all. As professional and expert employment solicitors in Birmingham we here at KJ Conroy have devised the following guide which answers some commonly asked questions regarding employment law.

How Much Holiday Am I Entitled Too?

As long as you work an average of 5 days a week you are entitled to 5.6 weeks holiday in each year; which equates to 28 days. Bear in mind this may include the 8 days of bank holidays each year too, so in terms you may only get 20 actual days that you can use for your own pleasure.

What Do I Do If I Believe I’ve Been Unfairly Dismissed?

Firstly you need to ensure you qualify for unfair dismissal, this means meeting the following conditions:

-    You must have worked for at least 1 year continuously, and are under 65 (or the normal retirement age for that job)
-    You must be at work full-time or part-time and are not in the armed forces, police or are a share fisherman.

If you qualify with the above you simply need to get in touch with one of our team who will guide you through the next steps of the process.

Is There A Time Limit For Raising A Claim?

If you want to raise a claim at an employment tribunal you have to do so within 3 months of the day you left your employment, your employer then has 28 days in which to respond to the claim.

Don’t be confused with the legalities surrounding employment law, if there’s anything you’re unsure with it just simply pick up the phone and call one of the team here at KJ Conroy on 0121 212 1575 today.
