Employment Tribunals

Should an employee raise a grievance we can advise you on how best to seek a resolution, including early conciliation, where appropriate.

The service requirement for unfair dismissal has risen to two years and, with the introduction of tribunal fees, there has been a sharp reduction in the number of cases brought. In addition, employers have early ACAS conciliation to contend with. We take all these into consideration when providing risk assessments to clients.

There have been significant changes affecting employment litigation and we work to ensure that none of our clients are kept in the dark.

In the event that proceedings are issued we will prepare your response and provide you with a clear case assessment at a very early stage which will assist you in identifying the best strategy in the circumstances.

Our team includes highly-skilled advocates who work as an extensive to your HR team. If matters get to a hearing you will know that you will be represented by someone who knows the issues involved and understands the way your business works. If circumstances require legal counsel, we look to highly regarded experts who share our ethos.
