Employment Tribunal Representation for Employers
Employment Tribunals claims are complex, stressful, time consuming and, if not handled properly, can result in your business paying out hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation.
Getting advice at the very outset of an employment dispute, whether that be when receiving an employee’s grievance, solicitor’s letter, ACAS Early Conciliation notification or an Employment Tribunal claim form, is absolutely key in ensuring you are best placed to defend any claim from former or current employees. It also regularly saves you thousands of pounds as we can ensure no mistakes are made in the early stages of a dispute which come back to haunt you later on.
The Employment Tribunal makes decisions about employment disputes, including unfair dismissal, redundancy and discrimination. Employment Tribunal claims are subject to strict time limits and therefore it is very important that you seek legal advice as soon as possible. Otherwise, your defence could be dead and buried before it has even got off the ground.
We offer a Fixed Fee Case Assessment, which allows you to get the potential claim against you reviewed at the very outset for a small fee by an experienced employment lawyer used to arguing cases in the Employment Tribunal. We will advise you of the strengths (or weaknesses) of the claim and what the best next steps are. We pride ourselves on providing plain-English advice, on commercial and pragmatic terms.
We have also produced a guide to Employment Tribunal Costs for Employers, which sets out the normal steps involved in defending an Employment Tribunal claim, the associated costs and the timescales.
We are more than happy to meet with you face to face to discuss any claim you are facing and best next steps. We take a personal approach to all our client relationships.
The vast majority of Employment Tribunal claims settle at an early stage and therefore it is likely that the claim you are defending will not proceed to a final hearing, saving you the added stress and costs involved in the same. We have a proven track record of negotiating substantial settlement sums for our clients and so where this represents the best possible outcome for you, we will do all we can to ensure that settlement on generous terms is achieved.
