Employment Tribunal Representation
Our specialist employment solicitors have vast experience in all types of claims, from Unfair Dismissal and Constructive Dismissal, to claims based on Discrimination (sex, race, disability, religion or age).
What does it cost?
The general rule in an employment tribunal is that each side pays their own legal fees regardless of whether they win or lose. There are exceptions but cost orders are rare.
If you are worried about legal fees then talk things through with us. We will be able to assess the strength of your claim and talk to you about the risks involved.
You may already have insurance cover for legal costs. Legal expenses insurance is often tagged on to home insurance.
We work closely with you in dealing with any claim. As our solicitors usually conduct their own advocacy (representing you at hearings) we will provide continuity of service and help you from start to finish.
We have an enviable track record of success in the Employment Tribunal due to the expertise of our solicitors.
