If you’re under investigation, facing disciplinary action or have been suspended from your job, the chances are you’ll be worried and unsure of what to do next. That’s why contacting one of our expert employment lawyers, based in IpswichHadleigh, Felixstowe and Woodbridge, is a priority. We can assess your situation, explain where you stand from a legal perspective and work out the best way to proceed to ensure you are treated fairly or to protect your position.

Have you been accused of misconduct or suspended because of allegations made against you? Have you been disciplined and you think it is unreasonable? Do you need help to prepare yourself for a disciplinary hearing? Have you been warned that you may be dismissed due to long-term sickness?  Have performance concerns been unfairly raised with you?

We have experience in dealing with a vast range of employment issues and can work with you to make sure your rights are protected.


If you have been unfairly dismissed from your job, or if you have been treated in a way which gives you no alternative but to leave (constructive dismissal), Gotelee’s team of specialist employment solicitors can also help you.

Whether the issue is about your performance, an allegation of misconduct, your health, or redundancy, we can assess your case to ascertain whether or not your employer followed a fair procedure. That usually requires an investigation and a meeting with you to discuss the problem. You should be given the opportunity to respond to the concerns raised and you should be given a right of appeal.

How can we help?

If relations at work sour, you need experienced legal expertise on your side. We’ll work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.

It is far better for you to take early advice from our solicitors, who can tell you if your employer is acting unreasonably or unfairly, and let you know what your options are in a clear and understandable way.

We have an excellent track record in resolving unfair claims quickly and efficiently. We can draft letters for you, or prepare you for a disciplinary hearing. If you’ve been treated unfairly, we’ll help you with your appeal. If you are dismissed, we’ll tell you what the best course of action is and how to approach the problem.

We are talented negotiators and will try to secure a settlement – but if your case ends up in an employment tribunal, rest assured that our lawyers have a wealth of experience in successfully representing clients in court.

Our fees are competitive and will be made clear to you from the outset. Usually, we will be able to agree a fixed charge so you know exactly where you stand.
