A person is classed as an employee if they work under a ‘contract of employment’ which can be created in writing or verbally or by a mixture of both.

An individual doing paid work in the UK falls into one of three main categories:

  • an employee, or
  • a ‘worker’ (which has a distinct legal meaning), or
  • self-employed (or independent contractor), or
  • entitled to various individual rights, for example under the Equality Act 2010 or the Agency Workers Regulations 2010, or
  • an employee shareholder with reduced employment rights.

Employee status is therefore significant because 'employers' will be exposed to the majority of employment rights only if the 'working person' can prove they are an employee rather than self-employed.

Need help to decide if you are an employee and to understand your working rights, then contact HR Solutions Shropshire.

Employee relations are at the heart of any workplace.

A company with good employee relations provides fair and consistent treatment to all its staff so they will be committed to their jobs and loyal to the company.

If you think something in your workplace is not fair, or something is going wrong and you're not being treated correctly, you need expert help.

Contact HR Solutions Shropshire and we'll help you through the employee relations minefield.

Disciplinary / Grievance

Managing conflict effectively is key to creating a healthy and productive working environment. Resolving disputes informally and at an early stage where possible will help resolve minor concerns speedily, without the need for formal action that can be protracted and stressful for all concerned.

Disciplinary and grievance procedures are essential when informal mechanisms are ineffective, or where they’re inappropriate given the nature of the dispute. These procedures can also help to avoid costly and time-consuming tribunal cases.

If you need any advice on a disciplinary or how to write a grievance letter HR Solutions Shropshire is on hand to help and support you work through any issue.

There are few things quite as intimidating as finding yourself involved in disciplinary action.

Disciplinary action is designed to prevent or improve poor performance or deal with inappropriate behavior. Employers typically implement discipline procedures gradually based on the type and frequency of a policy violation.

If you are feeling scared about facing a disciplinary or worried about how to conduct yourself through the process, let HR Solutions Shropshire set you up to be able to tackle the hardest task master, and hopefully get the result needed.

Grievances are concerns, problems or complaints that you raise with your employer. There is no legally binding process that you or your employer must follow when raising or handling a grievance at work. However, there are some principles you and your employer should observe.

Want to put a grievance in writing? Not sure how to write it or what you need to put? Help is at hand.

Call HR Solutions Shropshire to hold your hand through this stressful process and help ensure the right outcome.

Every workplace should have an attendance policy which defines absence and outlines the consequences for unexcused time away from work.

But they are not always the easiest of documents to understand.

That's where HR Solutions Shropshire can help.

If you need help to understand your attendance policy and what it means to you - especially if you have been absent and are worried about the consequences - let us guide you through it and bring you out in a better light.


Having a baby or adopting a beautiful child is the most exciting thing you'll ever do.

But it can also be scary trying to understand just what rights you have.

Statutory maternity, paternity and adoption rights apply to the periods of absence granted to parents both before and after the birth or adoption of their child.

They exist to provide parents with the time needed to maintain their family responsibilities while still retaining their right to return to work - and have changed massively over the last 30 years.

So if you're struggling to get your head around just what you are - or are not - entitled to, call in HR Solutions Shropshire.

We'll make sure you understand your policy, know just what statutory rights you are entitled to, what pay you might get and help work out any shared parental leave.

That way, you can concentrate on your new addition.

Do you feel alone? Do you feel you can't talk to your employer? Do you feel they don't pay attention to your psychological health and well-being at work?

Mental health issues can have a significant impact on your well-being and are a major cause of long-term absence from work.

Talk to HR Solutions Shropshire to get the support you need. We'll make sure your employer knows just what they need to know so that you can get the help you need when you need it.

Do you feel you are treated unfairly at work? Do you believe it is because of who you are?

If so, it might be classed as unlawful discrimination - and you may be able to do something about it under the Equality Act 2010, ultimately even at an employment tribunal.

With decades of experience in this area, HR Solutions Shropshire can give you expert advice on just what steps you can take.

If you feel you are being discriminated against then get in touch with us and we'll do everything we can to resolve the situation - hopefully long before it might go to tribunal.

Nobody should be discriminated against at work because of their age.

It has been illegal in the UK since 2006, with the law now incorporated into the Equality Act 2010.

Employment decisions based on age are never justifiable because age isn't a genuine employment criterion - it's a poor predictor of performance and it's misleading to equate physical and mental ability with age.

So, if you think you have been unfairly disadvantaged for reasons relating to your age - whatever it is - you need to talk to HR Solutions Shropshire.

We'll use our expertise to address the issues and get them sorted.

Do you feel you have an open culture of respect and dignity while at work and that differences are valued?

Do you feel diversity and inclusion is managed successfully in your company?

Different perspectives, experiences and ideas challenge 'group think', stimulate creativity and innovation and contribute to better business performance.

Race discrimination has been illegal in the UK since 1976. It arises when someone is unfairly disadvantaged for reasons related to their race which, for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010, includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins.

Has this happened to you? There is no need to suffer in silence. Give HR Solutions Shropshire a call to discuss just what options you have. Our expertise is here for you.

Do you have a disability - a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities?

Disability discrimination has been illegal in the UK since 1995, with the law now incorporated into the Equality Act 2010.

Having a disability shouldn't mean you don't get the job you're perfectly qualified for. It shouldn't prevent you from getting the training you need to stay up to date and it cannot be used as an excuse for subjecting you to poor customer service.

At HR Solutions Shropshire we are experts in this field. Contact us now so we can guide you through what a good employer can do to help you reach your highest potential.

Have you ever felt you are being discriminated against due to your gender?

There are four different types of sex discrimination: Direct, indirect, victimisation and harassment, with the law now being incorporated into the Equality Act 2010.

Protection against discrimination on the grounds of gender reassignment is also part of the Equality Act.

Maybe you are pregnant or on maternity or paternity leave and feel your employer is discriminating against you? Maybe you feel your employer is not taking diversity seriously? Or maybe you feel your gender is being used as a way of not rewarding you sufficiently?

Whatever your worries, HR Solutions Shropshire can guide you through your rights, explain the law and help you be treated legally and fairly.

Get in touch today for expert advice.

Religion and belief can be a real minefield at work.

But that does not mean you should suffer if you think you've been unfairly disadvantaged due to reasons related to your religion or belief.

The Equality Act 2010 covers religious or philosophical beliefs but doesn't give a list of religious and belief groups. It does, however, include not having any religious belief.

If you think you might have been discriminated against because of what you believe or your religion, we can help.

HR Solutions Shropshire will take you step by step through the process needed to resolve the issues quickly and effectively.

Contact us today - you won't regret it.

It's been illegal to discriminate against anyone in the UK based on their sexuality since 2003.

But despite this - and the incorporation of the law in the Equality Act 2010 - many gay, lesbian and transgender people do not feel able to be 'out' at work.

It doesn't - and shouldn't - have to be this way.

At HR Solutions Shropshire we have the expertise to put things right.

If you feel that people are prejudiced and stereotyping you based on your sexuality - and your employer is not doing anything about it - get in touch.

We'll help guide you through your company's internal procedures and take whatever action we can to reach a win-win solution for both sides.
