Solicitors in Stevenage
Stevenage is a relatively small town in the north of Hertfordshire. It is the first of many new towns developed after the Second World War in an attempt to relieve the population pressure of London. The town’s incorporation was a hotly debated issue which gave rise to a legal debate regarding the validity of the decision making process of the relevant committee.
With a population of around 80,000 residents, there are many different legal services that solicitors in Stevenage provide. Local businesses are in regular need of commercial advice regarding company formation, tax and liability. Individuals are more likely to require the advice of Stevenage solicitors when it comes to divorce, probate and criminal issues. The one area of law that both companies and individuals are interested in is employment law.
Stevenage solicitors were recently involved in an employment law dispute between a hairdresser and the members of the salon in which she was employed. The employee became pregnant and was then discriminated against at work by both the business owner and other managers. She had brought legal action against the employer company but by the time the complaint was heard the business was wound up. She was then able to successfully sue the business owner herself, as it became known that the business owner began operating a second company. This case was significant because it confirmed the ability of individual claimants to seek compensation not only from individuals involved in the discriminatory behaviour, but also from the employer/business itself. It is also demonstrates the importance of seeking legal advice even where you are not sure that you will have a valid claim.
