Employment Tribunals

Are you thinking of bringing an employment tribunal claim against your employer?  Are you unsure how to prepare it?  Have you issued a claim already and need an expert to prepare your case and to represent you on the day? 

To achieve the best results in Employment Tribunals, it is crucial to understand how they work.  Anyone can fill in a tribunal claim form, but it takes expertise and experience to prepare it in the right way to win a case.  Likewise, anyone can represent themselves at their tribunal hearing, but would you be comfortable arguing legal details against a highly qualified solicitor or barrister?
On 29 July 2013 the Government introduced fees to lodge a Tribunal claim form and further fee payable before the hearing.  With fees ranging from £100 to £1,200, it is more important than ever to make sure that your claim form is correct.

At Backhouse Solicitors we are specialists in employment law and have brought many successful tribunal claims.  We know exactly how to prepare your claim form to present your case in the best possible light and we will tell you whether you are eligible for full or part remission (reduction) of the Employment Tribunal fee.  We will guide you through the ACAS Early Conciliation process and then make sure that your case is expertly prepared and that you receive excellent tribunal representation to suit your budget.  We are also skilled negotiators – if you would like us to reach a settlement with your employer without going to tribunal we will get the best possible deal for you.
