Employment tribunal representation

Where you are unable to resolve a dispute involving a member of staff they may take you to an employment tribunal to resolve the dispute.

This can be a very stressful and time consuming process which requires expert advice in order to resolve successfully.

PeoplepointHR will always act in your best interests as well as seeking to ensure, as far as possible, that you avoid having to attend employment tribunal hearings.

Employment settlements

If a matter is capable of settlement before proceeding to a tribunal we will support you by negotiating on your behalf via ACAS or an employee’s legal representative. We take robust action to ensure that any agreement reached is on terms favourable to you.

In the event that a settlement cannot be agreed and you are required to defend a case to tribunal hearing, our legally qualified advocates will manage the case on your behalf and represent you at the hearing to obtain the best possible outcome.

Our services include:

  • A full review of the case and advice on the prospects of success
  • Drafting of your defence
  • Full case preparation including the gathering of witness statement and associated actions
  • A commercial approach to dealing with your case with an assessment of any costs and compensation payouts so that you can properly consider any risks
  • Advice on the merits of an appeal if necessary
  • A review of the causes of the disputes and recommendations for changes or improvements to avoid it happening again

  • I found your toolkit on Absence Management to be really useful. Not only because it provides a clear explanation of exactly what I need to do and gives me the forms and everything that I need to manage absence here, but also because there is the opportunity to ask questions relating to my own workplace and the absence issues that I am dealing with daily.

    Julie, CIPD, People Services Officer, St Ives Group - London

They continue to be a regular go-to point for us, helping us to be sure that what we are doing is legal, safe and appropriate from a compliance perspective and won’t get us into trouble further down the line. The employee handbook that they provided has been invaluable in helping us to manage and get the most from our staff on a day to day basis.
