I am Gavin Booth

I don’t have clients; I have people who I support by helping them understand their rights at work based on my experience as a former trade unionist and representative at the Employment Tribunals in Scotland. I have done this since 1994, with Citizens Advice and the Trades Council. I started the Law at Work in 2004, which is a social enterprise activity for the benefit of people in Central Scotland.

I help people solve problems

I help people by providing practical advice about employment rights so that they can make good choices, and hopefully resolve any issues they have amicably. My primary objective is to help foster good workplace relations and to avoid litigation. However, if matters cannot be resolved and provided there are merits to a potential claim, I can provide representation and support with Employment Tribunal and Regulatory claims.

Perhaps I can help you too?

I work on a not-for-profit basis in the interest of the community in Central Scotland. Advice is generally free of charge. There will be a fee for representation, but the ability of any individual to pay a fee will always be taken into account. In every case, the primary objective is to provide advice free of charge so that individuals can make informed decisions, and if necessary, to allow them access to justice.
