Glossary of Employment Law Terms

As Specialist Employment Solicitors we understand that legal terms can be confusing. We have created a glossary of terms, specific to Employment Law, which we hope will help our clients navigate through this complex field.

Please note that the content on this website is not intended to be exhaustive or be a substitute for legal advice.  In employment law, the specific facts of any case or scenario are very relevant and the application of the law, to those facts, is case specific. In other words, there is no “one size, fits all” application of the law in employment. You are advised to seek specific advice to your unique situation and this applies to both the individual and the employer.

If you have questions or need advice it is advisable to get advice from qualified, specialist employment solicitors.

Please get in touch with us on 01483 303636 or email on to discuss your situation and see how we can help.
