Free employment advice is a service provided by the government agency Acas. It provides help and advice to both employees and employers, including on employment law, workplace relations, good practice at work and how the Employment Tribunal system works. The Acas website has a lot of information, and you can also call the helpline.
If you are worried about discrimination, you can also contact the EHRC for free and impartial information on the subject. There are also helplines run by the Citizen’s Advice service, and other organisations.
Many employment solicitors who specialise in this area will offer a free consultation with new clients. This will allow you to discuss your issue in detail and determine whether you have a case or not.
You should have your documents and notes with you when you speak to a solicitor. It is also worth having your contract and any letters from your employer with you as well. This will enable the solicitor to provide you with a clear answer to your questions. Depending on the type of problem you have, there may be other documents that are relevant. Free employment advice
