About Us

Free Employment Law Advice For Employees

We are a charity providing free employment law advice for employees living or working in Birmingham. If you are a trade union member, have legal insurance, or can afford to employ a solicitor then we would expect you to pursue those options.

We can assist with a wide range of employment problems, from disciplinary hearings right up to the employment tribunal. We provide advice and information and support clients to manage their cases, exceptionally we can offer a casework service where we act on your behalf.

The centre is managed by a qualified solicitor who is supported by a trainee caseworker and a dedicated team of experienced volunteers. We understand that when things go wrong at work it can be a stressful experience and we take pride in our friendly, approachable and supportive service. We will clearly explain your employment rights and provide an honest assessment of the strength of your case.

We are open from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Thursday when we can be contacted by phone or email. We can see clients on a Wednesday by appointment only in the city centre, please let us know if you need to see us in person and we will do our best to see you.

Although the service is free we welcome donations. It is only due to the generosity of our clients that we can meet the costs involved in supporting people with employment problems. We believe in “People Helping People” and your donation will help us to assist others.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the centre please contact us.
