Employment Tribunal

Would you like to defend employment tribunal proceedings and minimise the cost to the organisation of doing so?

If you’re faced with an employment tribunal claim, you’ll want to deal with it in the most cost-effective way, both in terms of financial outlay and management time.

We’ll find out from you what you consider the best outcome to be, take time to understand your concerns and the merits of the claim, then work with you to achieve the best possible outcome.

Our experience shows it is essential to ensure the correct legal issues are identified as early as possible and the relevant facts are clearly set out to the tribunal.  We make sure you understand what needs to be done and when, so the claim is properly managed and you are fully prepared for any hearing. It’s then entirely up to you as to the extent of our involvement – if you want to prepare your own submissions for our review, that’s fine by us.

We will make full use of the case management opportunities provided by the tribunal’s rules of procedure to deal with claims and issues that lack merit.  And if there’s an opportunity for a claim to be settled on satisfactory terms, we’ll always talk you through those opportunities.

Whether dealing with claims for unfair dismissal or discrimination, unlawful deductions from wages or the most complicated TUPE claims, we’ll be in your corner to find the best possible result for your organisation.

Please contact a member of the employment team to discuss any issues relating to defending employment tribunal claims.
