Employment Law

Carr & Co are one of the leading employment solicitors in Newcastle and Northumberland. We work with both employers and employees to provide advice and solutions to problems or disputes at work. We specialise in advising individual employees or employers on contractual rights, grievance and disciplinary procedures, discrimination and harassment, dismissal, redundancy or resignation.

The Employment Tribunal

We specialise in giving sound advice and representation at the Employment Tribunal. If you have not yet made a claim and are considering doing so, it is important to act very quickly. Usual time limits mean that you are not able to make a claim to the Tribunal if it is three months or more after the dismissal or complaint. For more information regarding bringing or defending a claim for unfair and wrongful dismissal click here.

Compromise Agreements

If an agreement has been reached between an employee and their employer – such as voluntary redundancy, early retirement or dismissal – a compromise agreement may be drawn up. At Carr & Co, our employment solicitors specialise in drafting up compromise agreements for employers, and assisting and advising employees on compromise agreements that their employer has presented to them to sign.


Carr & Co provide comprehensive advice and packages to suit employers. We can assist with drafting letters of appointment and contracts of employment and advising on disciplinary and grievance procedures as well as redundancy procedures. As part of our packages we offer a free annual review to ensure you are still up to date and comply with current employment legislation.
