Employment litigation can cause a great deal of anxiety and uncertainty for employers, not least the associated cost, lost management time and potential reputational damage. Our specialist Business Employment Solicitors can provide bespoke legal advice and can be contacted through freephone 0808 175 8000 or by completing our online form.
If your business is facing an employment tribunal claim, you will need an experienced solicitor who can guide you through any uncertainty with a clear and tailor-made strategy to meet your individual needs and budget.
Our business employment solicitors have a wide range of experience in advising employers on the whole range of employment litigation and we have particular expertise in successfully defending claims for:
- Unfair dismissal (both ordinary and automatic);
- Wrongful dismissal;
- Breach of contract and unlawful deductions from wages;
- Failure to inform and consult;
- Equal pay;
- Breach of the Working Time Regulations;
- Breach of the National Minimum Wage Act.
Our team of solicitors pride themselves on their straightforward commercial and pragmatic approach to employment litigation. Of course every employer is different and objectives will therefore vary in respect of each case. Some employers wish to send out a strong message to the workforce by defending a claim all the way to an employment tribunal hearing. Some prefer the certainty of working towards early settlement (via ACAS or otherwise). Others prefer an approach somewhere between the two. Whatever the objective, our team of solicitors will provide unwavering support and guidance so that employers feel well-prepared and well-informed at every stage.
We ensure that Employers are well prepared and well informed when involved in employment tribunal proceedings. Once instructed, we will carry out a thorough assessment of your prospects of successfully defending the action, and the possible financial exposure to your business. We will then work with you to devise an appropriate strategy which is tailored with your specific objectives in mind. We will assist you to deal with all case management steps, including disclosure of documents and drafting witness statements as well as settlement (where appropriate). We will also ensure that you are represented by an appropriately qualified barrister at the final employment tribunal hearing.
