Employment Tribunal

Employment Tribunal

No HR Manager wishes to receive an ET1 (Employment Tribunal claim form) landing on their desk. However even the best managed businesses will be required to defend Employment Tribunal proceedings from time to time.

We represent employers in the Employment Tribunal and advise employers on the litigation process.Since the ACAS Early Conciliation Scheme started in 2014, an employer will be approached by ACAS first to see if it wishes to settle the claim. We also represent employers in the ACAS Early Conciliation scheme and at the Employment Tribunal, if an employer does not wish to settle or is unable to settle. We understand how unsettling it can be for HR and company managers to be involved in defending an Employment Tribunal. If you are an employer that is required to defend an Employment Tribunal litigation, we will do all we can to reassure you and explain the litigation process to you. We are experienced tribunal advocates who have represented employers in the Employment Tribunal for over 15 years. In that time the Employment Tribunal has become must more legalistic and we are well qualified to protect your company’s interests.

Industrial Relations

The skills that an HR manager needs to operate in a collective environment are very different to those needed to manage in an environment where there are no collective negotiations. Our extensive experience in industrial relations has been built up over many years of advising employers in unionised environments. We can advise you on how to deal with industrial disputes as well as on the law on strike action.

Settlement Agreements

Settlement Agreement – Employer

In our experience, settlement agreements are used widely by employers. They allow an employer and employee to terminate employment in a civilised fashion with the employer knowing they cannot be sued and the employee receiving appropriate compensation.
