Glasgow Central Citizens' Advice Bureau

Are you having problems in the workplace?

At Glasgow Central CAB we can help you with a variety of work related issues whether you're an employer or an employee.

We would advise you to bring the following documents with you to assess the situation:

  • Contract of employment
  • Actual date employment commenced
  • Disciplinary and grievance procedures (if not contained in your contract)
  • Pay slips.
  • Evidence of Hourly/Weekly wage, or salary.
  • Names, addresses and statements from any witnesses to the events.
  • Other letters/documentation including warnings

Glasgow Central Citizens' Advice Bureau will never ask you to provide confidential, financial or banking details by telephone or email.

We have prepared a template form for you to complete. This will allow us to get started as quickly as possible and will drastically reduce the amount of time you need to spend with an adviser. You can download the form below.

Employment issues - download.

Although completing the template form will help, it is not a replacement for original documentation. Please ensure that when you visit the bureau, you bring the above template and the original documentation listed above.

If your intention is to submit a claim through the Employment Tribunal there is a time closure imposed. It is therefore to your advantage to come to the Bureau as soon as possible after the events. It is advantageous to look at the contract, follow and submit a grievance letter to your employer in line with the company disciplinary procedure.

At present, we have limited capacity for employment tribunal representation. If this is a service you require, please visit us and we will be able to advise on our ability to represent you at a tribunal. We can assist in referrals to employment lawyers or legal clinics, and if you live within the North Glasgow area our team based in the North Glasgow Advice Centre may consider representation for employment issues.

Where the issue is holiday entitlement we require information on when the company holiday year begins.

There is also additional help available on this subject at the Adviceguide website -
