Specialist Employment Law advice for residents of Northamptonshire


Franklins Solicitors LLP places great value on its Corporate Social Responsibility, encouraging its employees to be involved within the local community as much as possible. As part of his day-to-day role, Ben Stanton, Associate Partner within the Employment Division, works with both individuals and corporations on all aspects of employment law issues.

More recently, Ben has also identified that there was an opportunity to help those individuals who were perhaps experiencing unfairness at work but were unable to obtain their own advice, prompting him to provide employment law advice at drop-in sessions for the Community Law Service (Northampton and County) (formerly Welfare Rights Advice Service - Northampton and County).

The Community Law Service (Northampton and County) is the largest independent advice provider in Northamptonshire and is a registered charity providing independent and confidential specialist legal advice and representation in the fields of welfare benefits, debt, housing, employment law and immigration. It provides a comprehensive casework service from the beginning to the conclusion of an individual’s case, including representation at court or tribunal if necessary.

Established in 1983 in the Est Midlands, the Community Law Service’s service is both independent and confidential. Ben enjoys meeting new people and the drop-in sessions allow him to give-back to his local community, providing employment-law advice as his area of expertise. The drop-in sessions are held bi-weekly and Ben covers all areas of employment law; areas such as National Minimum Wage queries, unpaid salary/holiday disputes, breach of employment contracts, TUPE, Redundancy scenarios, Disciplinary and Grievance Proceedings, Maternity Rights, Discrimination, Health & Safety and Unfair Dismissal.

Ben says,

“Having always lived in Northamptonshire, I am happy to be able to work closely with the Community Legal Service to give something back to my community; some of the people that I have seen would not otherwise have been able to afford to obtain legal advice."

"In working with the Service, I hope to provide assistance to those individuals who have genuinely been unfairly treated and be of benefit to the local community.”
