What is the Employment Tribunal Representation process?

Even before an employment tribunal claim is made, our consultants will work with you to resolve any employee grievances. We are experts at compromise agreements which may resolve issues with employees in a way that protects the employers business from potentially costly employment tribunal defences.

Should the prospective employee, employee or ex-employee submit a claim to the employment tribunal office, then our consultants will prepare your response. This must be done within 28 days, otherwise you may not be able to defend your case. The response is considered by an employment judge who will instruct what actions each party needs to complete to prepare for the full hearing. This may take the form of preparation of various documents, collection of witness statements and agreeing dates that evidence should be exchanged between parties.

Occasionally the employment tribunal judge requests that a preliminary hearing takes place prior to the tribunal. ACAS will also be instructed to contact both parties in an attempt to see if a financial agreement can be reached without having to proceed to full employment tribunal. Many disputes are settled by these means without the need for the case proceeding to a full hearing. Whatever is needed, our employment tribunal consultants will work on your behalf liaising with the authorities and other parties to protect your business.
