    Claims solicitor in Hawes


    If you work in or around Hawes and you suffer an accident while at work, what are your rights? That’s the purpose of this article – we’ll look at some of the things you should consider and the best way to find a claims solicitor in Hawes who specialises in employment law.

    Your employer’s obligations

    All employers should understand the importance of health and safety. It is their obligation to ensure the environment they provide for their employees is as safe as comfortable as is possible within reason.

    This includes assessing all the risks within the environment and taking steps to avoid them. What these risks are naturally depends on the specific nature of the business. A factory for example might face all sorts of different issues. There could be the danger of machines not being safely maintained while the environment itself could cause conditions that sneak up on people.

    If you’re working in a loud environment for a long time industrial deafness can happen all too easily. To stop this, your employer should provide ear defenders or take other measures to prevent any condition arising. A job which involves many of the same actions repeated over and over again will also result in issues such as repetitive strain injury. Again the employer must take necessary measures to reduce the chances of this happening.

    Your rights

    Many people are put off by the thought of claiming against their employer because they are worried about how this might affect their prospects later in their career. Well, you needn’t be worried. If you make a claim, your employer is not allowed to fire you just because you’re taking a claim out against the company or to take any other vindictive measures against you.
