Types of Claims
  • Unfair

    Employers must follow a fair procedure and have a fair reason to lawfully dismiss an employee with 2 years' service. If you are facing a capability, disciplinary or redundancy procedure or have already been dismissed and believe the decision was unfair, we could help you make a claim.

  • Discrimination

    If you are being discriminated against at work, there are laws in place to protect you. Discrimination in the workplace is a challenging area of employment law and you may need legal advice and support in order to protect your best interests, Abbott & Co. can guide you through this process.

  • Whistleblowing

    There may come a time in your career when you feel you have a moral or legal duty to report wrongdoing or malpractice in the workplace. This is commonly referred to as “Whistleblowing”. We are proud to offer our support to anyone affected by their decision to blow the whistle.

  • Contract

    Employment contract disputes can arise for a number of reasons. Often, the most common cause of a dispute is when an employer wishes to make changes to the terms of your contract. No matter what the cause, our expert employment solicitors are here to support you.

Detriment at Work

If you have suffered a detriment at work because of something you have complained to your employer about, you may be able to make a claim. A detriment is being subjected to some kind of disadvantage other than being dismissed from your job (unless you are a “worker” and not an “employee”). The term covers a broad range of unfair treatment, for example a failure to promote, demotion, closer monitoring, ostracism, suspension, disciplinary action and others.

You may be able to claim compensation as a result of the detriment. This can include an award called an “injury to feelings” award in certain cases. It may also include financial loss, if any has been suffered. For example, if the detriment is the denial of a promotion, compensation for the loss of salary increase could potentially be claimed. An employment tribunal would have to assess what loss was attributable to the detriment claimed.
