Get Our Help

Every Saturday at Wembley Library we run an Employment Rights clinic for UK and EU nationals, where we provide free and confidential assistance in a number of European languages. Common enquiries include assisting you with accessing employment rights such as unpaid wages, improving your employability by drafting a CV or cover letter, and helping you understand how employment affects your EU residence status.

Our employment rights clinic

You can drop-in to our clinic on Saturdays from 10am - 4pm

Gather any necessary evidence

If you have an employment rights problem, to work on your case we will need as many details as possible:

  • a brief history of your current employment,
  • a copy of your contract,
  • payslips,
  • the name and address of your employer,
  • the nature of the dispute.
