How We Can Help You!

My name is Sam Stone. Amy & I have created this website to assist people like you who are:

  • Subjected to a disciplinary workplace investigation;
  • Subjected to bullying, harassment and/or discrimination at work;
  • Suspended from work;
  • Have been placed on a PIP or performance improvement plan;
  • Are currently going through the grievance procedures.
  • Are at risk of being dismissed.

My wife Amy & I have over 13 years experience in assisting clients like you going through one or more of the aforementioned procedures. We can help you avoid the common pitfalls, which most employees’ experience when going through any of the aforementioned procedures. You can visit our testimonials page with regards to thousands of people whom we have helped write grievance letters for over the last 13 years.

The reason for creating this website is because Amy & I have both previously been through the grievance procedures ourselves, and have personally experienced what you are now going though. Amy was subjected to sexual harassment and disability discrimination in the workplace by her employer. I was subjected to a performance improvement plan, suspension and disciplinary investigation.

Backed into a corner, we sought legal advice. However, we found the solicitors who we consulted either lacking in enthusiasm or tenacity to help us. Having consulted three different law firms to get advice, we were advised our cases were either too complex or had little merit of success.  We felt let down and betrayed.

Consequentially, Amy & I spent months in law libraries learning about employment law and our employment rights here in the UK. We successfully settled my case without having to go to the employment tribunal. This was down to sheer cunning on my part to box my former employer into a corner. Amy was not so lucky, and her employer wouldn’t settle, so I represented Amy in the employment tribunal. After a case management hearing and preliminary hearing in the employment tribunal, it was obvious we knew our stuff and weren’t going to back down. We managed to settle Amy’s case, despite all three law firms advising us to drop Amy’s case due to the threat of costs orders and strike outs.

Over the last 13 years, Amy & I have assisted thousands of people like you get justice and victory over their employers. Amy & I work seven days a week to provide our clients with the support and assistance they need. We put our clients first. You can visit our testimonials page. The Human Resources Department’s job is to protect the employer. Most of us who have had a run in with the HR Department will more often than not end up being left stressed, anxious and/or depressed. This is why I refer to the HR Department as the ‘Human Remains Department’ not least as on the balance of probabilities the HR Department will undertake a defective grievance investigation, which will leave you feeling frustrated, angry and marginalised.

We aim to do all we can to assist our clients in obviating the need to pursue the litigative route via the employment tribunal.

Having personally gone through and experienced what most of you are now suffering, Amy & I know first-hand the stress, anxiety and anger you currently feel. By the time most people contact us they are already suffering from work related stress, anxiety, panic attacks and/or depression.

We speak from the heart when we say to you that we understand the frustration, anger, sleepless nights, heart palpitations and anxiety, which you feel now. We have personally already trodden the path, which you now tread.

Given the fact that most employees’ have no knowledge of employment law, by failing to write an articulate grievance letter which outlines your employer’s breaches of your statutory rights, you will have played right into your employer’s hands. What many of our clients fail to articulate is that your employer will likely have an agreement with a law firm who will vet your grievance letter. As such, when you lodge your grievance letter with your employer, chances are you think you are dealing with your employer’s Human Remains Department. In truth, you are dealing with your employer’s solicitors without ever knowing it.

Writing a grievance letter is much like trying to bake bread for the first time; chances are you will get the grievance letter wrong first time around. The difference being, you only get one chance to write your grievance letter!
