Employment Class Actions

Employees who have lost their jobs because a company has gone into administration or liquidation, outsourced activities overseas or been sold to another firm may not realise they still have employment rights.

At JMW we have a wealth of experience in assisting employees in these situations after the failure of high profile companies such as JJB Sports and Comet. We specialise in bringing group actions against employers.

If you have been made redundant following a company takeover or bankruptcy, contact our knowledgeable and friendly solicitors on 0345 872 6666 or fill in our contact form and we will get in touch.

Could you be entitled to make a claim?

If your employer has gone into administration, or your role has become obsolete after an outsourcing operation, then you could be entitled to claim if your employment rights have not been honoured.

If the firm you work for has been taken over and the new owners have made any changes to your:

  • Terms and conditions of employment – maternity/paternity leave, pensions
  • Holiday entitlement
  • Holiday pay
  • Sickness pay and rules around absence through illness

You may be able to make them re-consider or pay compensation for any loss of entitlement.

Group employment claims

In the past these negotiations would often have been dealt with by union representatives. Nowadays, when many work places do not have unions, employees need to fight for their rights themselves. 

One of the most effective ways of doing this is to get together with other employees to put your case as one with the help of a solicitor.

 JMW’s specialist employment lawyers can help you take up your claim often on a No Win No Fee basis.

We take on cases in any sector, from retail and banking to education and construction.
