Employment Tribunal Representation

Employment Tribunal Representation

If you are a business owner or HR manager and your company is being taken to an Employment Tribunal by an employee or former employee, it is crucial that you engage the services of an employment law solicitor.

Depending on the type of claim being brought against your company and the strength of that claim, the compensation that you may be forced to pay can be limitless.  Seeking advice and representation from an experienced employment law solicitor can drastically reduce the potential damages you have to pay out.

The employment law team at Farleys are experienced in representing companies at employment tribunals and have succeeded in the defence of many companies.

Initial advice from an employment law solicitor at Farleys will provide you with:

  • An assessment of the likelihood of your defence being successful
  • An indication of any potential compensation payout
  • An indication of the fees associated with the defence of your case
  • A commercial approach towards dealing with the case

Defence at Employment Tribunal

An Employment Tribunal claim is brought about if an employee or former employee makes a claim against you or your business. The claim can be for any number of serious matters, including harassment, discrimination (race, sex, age, disability, age, sexual orientation or otherwise), unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal.

Although it is possible to represent yourself at Employment Tribunal, having the right tactical approach from the outset could prove fundamental to whether the judgement is made against you or your business and you are forced to pay out compensation. An employment law solicitor from Farleys will not only be able to advise you of the best approach, but can also represent you throughout the process, reliving much of the strain from you.
