Legal advice and support for teachers
Our expert team of employment law solicitors is recommended by the independently-researched publication, The Legal 500, as being one of the top teams of experts in the country.
Employment law issues are complicated, and each circumstance is unique to that person. We want to ensure that you don’t pay more than you need to for advice on your employee issue and offer initial appointments where you will see a member of our employment law team based on the complexity of your case and their experience and expertise. The charges for these appointments are based on our hourly rates and include up to a one-hour appointment, where you will be able to find out what your legal rights and options are, along with confirmation of our advice after the appointment.
For further information on the legal advice services we can provide for teachers, please call 0800 024 1976 or contact us via our online enquiry form.
