If you find yourself in a dispute with your employer that cannot be resolved through a grievance or negotiation, you may be able to present a claim to an Employment Tribunal. Common claims include;
- Unfair dismissal
- TUPE related issues
- Unlawful deductions from wages
- Equal Pay claims
There is no requirement to have a solicitor representing you in the Tribunal, but if you think that you may want to bring a claim it is important to seek advice as soon as you can. There are very strict time limits for employment claims, and in general these are only 3 months from the date of the act you are complaining of.
We can assist you from the outset, advising you on whether you have a claim and drafting your claim form (known as the ET1). You cannot normally change the contents of your ET1 after it has been submitted, and it is therefore important to ensure that it contains all of the required information to begin with otherwise a judge may dismiss your case.
Even if your claim is successful, it is unlikely that you will be able to recover the cost of being legally represented. You may have legal expenses cover on your insurance and we can discuss this with you and arrange for your insurer to pay our costs if appropriate. Otherwise we will discuss the funding options available to you at the beginning of the case and, in certain circumstances, we may be able to deal with claims on a “no win, no fee” or “contingency fee” basis.
All initial enquiries are completely free of charge. Please either call us on 0121 746 3002 or complete a Free Online Enquiry to see how we can help you.
