The Employment Rights Unit has acquired a substantial reputation for handling employment law work including sex and race discrimination cases, for trade union members.

Our Liverpool office is also home to Thompsons' Settlement Agreement Unit, handling settlement agreements from across the UK. Last year, our experts helped more than 6,500 people, including those from numerous high-profile large-scale settlement exercises from big employers. Our aim is always to ensure the best terms and the quickest turn around, so our clients can get on with their lives after a job loss.
