If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of being taken to an employment tribunal by an employee, or you just want to protect yourself in case that situation does arise, then there are several ways in which we can help you.
Thanks to the recent decision to scrap tribunal fees, many claimants see little deterrence in pursuing formal action against their employers, especially with ever more sources of free advice available to them too.
Even when you are fully compliant with the law and utilising our employment law services to aid with this, there is nothing to stop an unhappy or disgruntled employee from making a claim.
Therefore, you should always have a safety net in place because even if you attend an employment tribunal and succeed, you may still have lost considerable money if you do not have the suitable protection in place for your representation costs.
Our employment law consultants can support you through the ups and downs of the process as your legal employment tribunal representative.
Whether it is a straightforward payment dispute or a more complex claim such as unfair dismissal, we are on hand to deal with all aspects of the employment tribunal procedure from beginning to end.

Settlements Agreements: What Employers Need To Know
A settlement agreement is a document that outlines the terms of a deal between employer and employee when an employee is being made redundant. This will typically state that the employee agrees not to take their employer to a tribunal if the employee gives them a certain amount of money, though the terms can vary depending on the situation.
Sometimes, if you find yourself at risk of a claim, reaching a settlement agreement with the claimant is the best option for your business. It means no long term hassle or stress and less time spent on the extensive tribunal process, as well as avoiding the tribunal costs.
If your employment law consultant feels that arranging a settlement is the best way to proceed, then they will openly advise you to do so, and explain why. They will also assist with the settlement proceedings such as writing up the documentation, so as to continue protecting your reputation and saving you as much money and time as possible.
