Am I safe at work ….. from coronavirus and from redundancy?

I promise this is not yet another piece aiming to answer all the questions about what happens next at work.  There are plenty of these already flooding the media and internet.  I think there are just too many variables, too many questions to try to answer these questions so that they are relevant to all. You may be concerned about…

How can I keep my job safe during the coronavirus crisis?

It’s been a whirlwind hasn’t it!  Keeping ourselves and our families safe is our number 1 priority.  But what about employees needing to know their rights and obligations at work and, for employers, making sure that managers are keeping their businesses afloat while trying to look after staff matters ….. and all the financial consequences? The announcements have come thick…

Should I Sign An Employment Contract?

Apart from browsing potential summer holidays to book, job hunting is another popular January activity that you might be doing. In the month of resolutions and fresh starts, when swept up with the enthusiasm of looking for and embracing a new challenge, it can be tempting to overlook some of the detail, so as not to focus on the negatives,…

Some of our Google reviews

5 star review  I engaged Patch Law upon the recommendation of a friend and am so glad I did! I found Gillian an absolute pleasure to work with; warm and approachable whilst being extremely knowledgeable and strategic in employment matters. Gillian’s advice and support helped me to navigate my way through a difficult situation I faced at work on returning from maternity leave to a very satisfactory end. Gillian is certainly someone you want on your side of the battlefield and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

5 star review  Gillian is a great ambassador for 'what's fair' both legally and morally, within the workplace. She dealt with my situation quickly and efficiently. She clearly knows her stuff! I would highly recommend Patch Law.

5 star review  I found both Gillian and Alex from Patch Law a joy to work with. The service provided by both was timely and professional, with Gillian spending a lot of time explaining to me the meaning of various clauses of a legal document requiring my signature. I would not hesitate in using Patch Law again and would recommend their service to others wholeheartedly.

5 star review  I used Patch Law to help me with a Schedule of Loss needed for a Tribunal hearing They were very speedy about gathering all the info they needed and I had phone calls to clarify details. I felt supported and reassured and received guidance from Gillian as to where I might gauge any offer made to me by the Respondent. All in all a good experience in what has been a stressful time for me.
