Badly treated at work? Use Virtual Lawyer to write to your employer.
Virtual Lawyer is a free to use tool that helps you write a letter to your employer. It is an award-winning tool developed by the team at Monaco Solicitors who are experts in employment law and legal technology.
The tool is designed to be easy to use by everyone, not just lawyers. It helps you draft a letter quickly using paragraphs relevant to your employment issues. All paragraphs in the tool have been written and reviewed by specialist employment lawyers.
How does it work?
It’s a simple three-step process:
- Answer a brief questionnaire about your circumstance at work: The tool will ask you a short list of questions and then recommend a selection of relevant paragraphs which you can include in your letter.
- Construct a letter from paragraphs: You can read through the recommended paragraphs to decide which ones are most appropriate for your case. Simply drag-and-drop these paragraphs to construct the fundamentals of your legal letter.
- Preview and amend your draft letter: Once you are happy with your selected paragraphs, you can preview the final letter. You can then copy your letter into your favourite word processing tool to make the final tweaks.
Virtual Lawyer is completely free and anonymous. There is no need to sign up, or give any of your personal details.
