If you are unable to resolve a dispute involving a member of staff, they may submit a claim against you at an Employment Tribunal in order to settle the matter.
This can be a very stressful, costly and time-consuming process which requires expert advice in order to be resolved successfully.
PeoplePointHR will do everything in our power to avoid an Employment Tribunal occurring in the first place, and will always negotiate a settlement that is favoured by you.
If an agreement cannot be reached, our qualified employment law team will represent you along every step of the way, which saves you the cost and burden of recruiting independent lawyers.
Prior to attending an Employment Tribunal, we will draft your Defence and make thorough assessments of what costs you are realistically likely to incur. We will also examine the cause of the initial dispute so that we can offer recommendations on making changes in the future to avoid ever facing an Employment Tribunal based on the same complaint.
Our free advice service will be able to guide you on what would be the next step after finding that an employee has filed a Tribunal claim against you.
Successful claims awarded at an Employment Tribunal may include a compensatory fee (which can be uncapped in certain instances) and an additional basic fee determined by the employee’s age and length of service.
Businesses that lose an Employment Tribunal case could potentially end up with a damningly large bill running into thousands of pounds, which makes it all the more crucial that you seek specialist legal help immediately if a claim is ever filed against you.
Unlike traditional law firms, PeoplePointHR do not charge clients at an hourly rate and instead offer clients a fixed-fee quote price of our services.
The skills and experience of our legally qualified advisers combined with the knowledge and dedication of our HR consultants mean that our clients have a strong chance of success when facing an Employment Tribunal.
