With the introduction of employment tribunal fees in 2013 and the consequent huge fall in claims, we saw marked changes in the tactical approach of many employers and HR teams. Many took a more relaxed approach to handling employment disputes adopting a more forceful approach than previously, based on a different assessment of risk. However, with the subsequent abolition of fees in 2017, we have seen a huge increase in claims again.
Even if a claim has no merits, it can nevertheless have a significant effect on your profits, morale and reputation. Getting an early assessment of risks and liabilities in disputes may well save a lot of time, money and pressure in defending a claim. In any potential claim, evidence will be important and will often be the difference between winning and losing a case, even if you are morally ‘in the right’. We will work closely with you to get you in the best possible position to defend claims and will fight for you when faced with an aggressive opponent.
With a long track-record of successfully defending claims, we can also provide our expert advice on tactics and settlement and will work with your teams to review any litigation (whatever its outcome) to make sure lessons are learned for the future.
Overall with any Tribunal claim our mission is to get the result you need and to support you though the process.
