With employers struggling to keep abreast of ever-changing employment law, it’s a rare employee who understands all their employment rights. On top of that, the last few years have seen it become ever more difficult for employees to exercise those rights.
In the meantime, it’s human nature to want to get on with those around you and no-one deliberately sets out to have an awkward or acrimonious employment relationship.

Mundays’ employment team provides advice to meet your personal objectives. We’ll identify your priorities and the most appropriate course of action from a range of options that gets you from where you are to where you want to be.
