Employment Tribunal Solicitors

Dealing with employment tribunal proceedings is extremely time consuming and it can often be a long drawn out process. Following the abolition of employment tribunal fees, the number of claims have increased dramatically. We are experienced in defending a wide variety of employment tribunal claims, from start to finish, including unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal, discrimination and TUPE claims.

ACAS Early Conciliation

It is mandatory for an employee to register for ACAS’s Early Conciliation service for most employment claims before initiating employment tribunal proceedings. ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) will talk to both you and your employee and attempt to facilitate a resolution between the parties to avoid formal recourse in the tribunals. A phone call or email from ACAS may be the first indication you receive that an employee or ex-employee is contemplating employment tribunal proceedings against your business. You can appoint us to liaise with ACAS on your behalf in connection with any dispute.

If Early Conciliation is unsuccessful an employee may then issue employment tribunal proceedings against you. You only have 28 days within which to lodge a defence to an employment tribunal claim and it is imperative that you seek legal advice at an early stage as this is a strict deadline. We can lodge the defence on your behalf ensuring that all claims are properly addressed and represent you throughout the matter, up to and including the final hearing.

For further information or support with Employment Tribunal Claims please call Lianne Payne, Head of Employment on 024 7623 1000.
