Employment Law Advice Service

We offer free and confidential employment advice for employees/workers on employment issues you experience during Covid 19.

You can request an appointment by completing and sending in our referral form to elas@rcjadvice.org.uk.


We can deliver employment advice regarding;

  • Redundancy and dismissal
  • Furlough and pay
  • Health & Safety and working conditions
  • Discrimination
  • Problems during Covid-19

Please note:

We currently have limited staff and are therefore running a reduced service during the month of August. For any existing clients, please note that we will only respond to matters of urgency during this time.

As a result, we are unable to accept any new referrals until September.

We hope the following information is useful if you have an employment query:

The Acas helpline is open Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm on 0300 123 1100 and they can discuss your options with you. For legal advice options, please see here: https://www.acas.org.uk/getting-legal-advice.


If you believe you need to start a claim urgently, do check your time limits through the ACAS website and through our website at the following link https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/work/problems-at-work/employment-tribunals/starting-an-employment-tribunal-claim/

Of course, you are welcome to contact us again in September when referrals will reopen: please do check your time limits if you are waiting till then.
