Forces Law

Employment Law

Serving in the Armed Forces is very different from having an ordinary job – which is probably why you joined up in the first place! But from a legal point of view, you’re still an employee, and the MoD is an Equal Opportunities Employer. That means have the same rights as your counterparts on Civvy Street when it comes to fairness and discrimination.

At Forces Law, we can advise you if you feel you’ve been discriminated against on the grounds of your ethnic origin, sex, age, physical ability or sexual orientation. We can also help you make a formal complaint if you’ve suffered harassment, victimisation or bullying. If your grievances can’t be resolved, we’ll support you in further action, including taking your case to an Employment Tribunal.

What’s more, we work with service people at every stage in life. So once you’ve left the forces, you can still contact us for help and advice on employment issues in your new civilian career.

What our clients say

Thank you for everything you have done!! You have been amazing from start to finish, I just wish I had come to you in the first place as my previous solicitor didn’t even know there were special rules for Armed Forces wives. Biscoes Solicitors.

(Bolt Burdon Kemp.) You have always been professional, meticulous, understanding, adaptable and really gone up and above in all aspect of our case and customer care. Not once during your representation have we had to worry or question your ability, directions, guidance or choice of experts or legal representation, which alleviates some of the worry and burden that litigation brings.

Sgt RLC, Military claims client.

(Wace Morgan Solicitors LLP) Very compassionate, caring and professional service. Very hard to improve on 100%. Good standard of service.

Do not hesitate to use Wolferstans as your solicitors. I have used them now on two occasions and they are quite simply the very best there is. Helpful, friendly, efficient but above all honest with you from start to finish. My most recent case was a triumph and that was down to their dedication and professional handling of the case. In short they saved me my future and I will be eternally grateful.

Mr Hall, Plymouth.
