Defending Employment Tribunal Claims

When an employee brings a claim to an Employment Tribunal, it is essential that their employer has the best possible legal representation. This can ensure all relevant facts are brought to light at the hearing and that the employer’s position is set out effectively.

At Morlings Solicitors, our employment lawyers are highly experienced in representing employers during Employment Tribunal hearings. We can assist with building your case and preparing you to appear at a Tribunal, as well as representing you during your hearing.

We can also provide realistic advice on the strength of your case at an early stage and tell you where we believe a settlement may be more appropriate, keeping your commercial interests in mind at all times.

Should you be unhappy with the outcome of an Employment Tribunal hearing, we can advise you on whether there are grounds for an appeal and support you through taking your case to the Employment Appeal tribunal where appropriate.

We understand how damaging Employment Tribunal claims can be for employers, with the potential to take up a lot of your time and money, as well as the risk of harming your reputation.

With this in mind, our employment lawyers will work proactively to resolve claims as quickly and cost-effectively as possible, while doing everything we can to preserve your reputation.

How we can help your business with Employment Tribunal claims

 

Seeking an amicable resolution to an employment claim

Allowing a claim to go to an Employment Tribunal should usually be a last resort when dealing with a workplace dispute. In the vast majority of cases, an Employment Tribunal hearing can be avoided with the right approach.

Our employment lawyers are highly skilled in the use of settlement agreements for resolving employment disputes, as well as guiding employers through Acas early conciliation.

We can advise you on what is a fair settlement, draft the necessary agreement and represent you during settlement negotiations should this be required. We can also provide independent settlement agreement advice for employees, which is necessary for the agreement to be legally binding.

Employment Tribunal representation

Where a claim does proceed to an Employment Tribunal, our team can support you through every stage of proceedings. Having our support from the start can significantly increase your chances of securing a favourable ruling.

We can help you to gather the necessary evidence to support your case and refute any unfounded claims made by the employee bringing the claim. Our employment lawyers can also represent you during the hearing, as well as helping to prepare you for appearing before the Employment Tribunal panel.

Appealing an Employment Tribunal ruling

Should you be unhappy with a ruling given by an Employment Tribunal, it is important to consider your options carefully.

Our team can provide a realistic assessment of your position and whether it is likely to be cost-effective to pursue the matter further. We will always balance the likely outcomes, the potential costs and the benefits of achieving the outcome you believe is fair.

Where we believe you have strong grounds for an appeal, our employment lawyers can assist you with taking your case to the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT). We can help you to prepare your case and represent you when appearing before the EAT.

If the EAT does not rule in your favour, we can advise you on your next steps, including the potential to take the matter to a higher court for review.
