Contract Disputes

Before you begin work at any firm, in any sector, you should be given an employment contract that sets out your obligations and rights, and the obligations and rights of your employer.

This agreement is designed to give protection to both parties, and if your employer breaches your contract, you may be entitled to make a claim for unfair treatment and compensation.

Ramsdens Solicitors have a dedicated employment law team with the knowledge and specialist experience to deal with contract disputes of any kind. We’ve worked with employees in all sectors and at companies of a variety of sizes, so don’t hesitate to get in touch – we can help.


A contract dispute is a disagreement over the terms of an employment agreement, and they are usually pursued by an employee who feels that a key aspect of their employment terms has been breached.

A dispute could arise over:

  • Maternity and paternity pay
  • Holiday entitlement
  • Annual leave
  • Wages or pensions
  • Health and safety
  • Other working conditions

Specific issues that can lead to disputes include:

  • Being denied a bonus you are entitled to.
  • Being refused maternity/paternity leave.
  • Changes to working hours without consultation.
