Employment Law Solicitors In Sittingbourne, Kent
We all spend a lot of time at work, and the relationship between employer and employee can become intense, particularly if there are strains or dissatisfaction on either side. When the relationship breaks down, the fall out can be difficult to manage.
It’s often difficult to see the woods for the trees, and many people prefer to walk away: if you decide to do so, we’ll ensure that you do so with your integrity intact and the right level of compensation.
Ratcliffes offers a low-cost initial consultation to talk through your situation. Because we can stand back from your position and advise you objectively, we will often be able to suggest solutions that may not have occurred to you previously.
