Specialist employment tribunal representation will be critical to securing a positive outcome for your organisation. We can help protect your interests and reputation.
Following the removal of tribunal fees for claimants, increasing numbers of employees are now bringing employment law claims against their employers.
This creates an imperative for employers both to take measures to mitigate the increased risk of litigation and to approach workplace disputes with greater care and skill to avoid escalation to tribunal.
Tribunal claims can be costly, protracted and they distract from core business activity. There are strict procedures to follow and your conduct throughout the process will be subject to tribunal scrutiny, potentially impacting the level of damages you will need to pay should you lose.
The tribunal process and timescales are strict, and failure to comply can be detrimental to your defence and could see a default judgment made against you.
