No business is immune from workplace disputes. Even the best manager will, over the course of a career, face the risk of a dispute which could result in legal proceedings.
If a Tribunal serves you with proceedings from a disgruntled employee, it can be time-consuming and risky to comply with the process and Tribunal orders. We will take on this burden for you, advising you throughout and dealing with the claim, drafting documentation liaising with Acas and providing representation at the Tribunal if required.
for no obligation advice on Employment Tribunal claims.
Your first thoughts will be to limit damage to your business. If you are faced with a possible claim we can work to resolve the dispute to avoid proceedings being issued against you or stop the claim going any further.
If the dispute cannot be immediately resolved, we are here to support and defend your business, from initial preliminary advice on the merits of a dispute, preparing your defence, following the Tribunal's directions, case management orders, disclosure duties and the drafting of your witness statements. We can represent you and appear at any Tribunal in the UK.
At the outset, we'll give you a straightforward and honest assessment of your prospects. Our specialist Employment Tribunal solicitors will also give you an idea as to the likely value of the claim if it's successful. This will help you decide whether to make an offer of settlement or defend the claim in full.
The costs of being involved in an Employment Tribunal can be worrying. That's why we've designed a fixed fee structure that enables you to keep an eye on costs. Disputes are stressful enough without having to worry about whether or not you will be able to afford them. Being better informed can make a big difference to minimising the effect they can have on you and your business. You can find out about our fixed fee services here.
If you have been contacted by Acas about a potential claim or received notice of a claim from a Tribunal, you should contact us as quickly as possible. You have just 28 days to submit a defence to the claim.
