No HR Manager wishes to receive an ET1 (Employment Tribunal claim form) landing on their desk. However even the best managed businesses will be required to defend Employment Tribunal proceedings from time to time.
We represent employers in the Employment Tribunal and advise employers on the litigation process.Under the ACAS Early Conciliation Scheme, an employer will be approached by ACAS first to see if it wishes to settle the claim. We also represent employers in the ACAS Early Conciliation scheme and at the Employment Tribunal, if an employer does not wish to settle or is unable to settle. We understand how unsettling it can be for HR and company managers to be involved in defending an Employment Tribunal. If you are an employer that is required to defend an Employment Tribunal litigation, we will do all we can to reassure you and explain the litigation process to you. Our solicitors have represented employers in the Employment Tribunal for over 15 years. In that time the Employment Tribunal has become must more legalistic and we are well qualified to protect your company’s interests.
