Defending employment tribunal claims can prove time consuming for employers. In addition to attending any tribunal hearing, you have to spend time collating relevant documents and preparing witness statements. All of this results in a cost to your business.
On that basis we always recommend that you take legal advice before deciding to take action that might result in a tribunal claim. Simply failing to follow a procedure can result in a claim being successful, even where you have a good reason for dismissing the individual. We offer a fixed fee retainer service so you can take advice without fear of escalating costs. However, even when advice is taken it isn’t always possible to avoid tribunal claims.
