Employment Tribunal Representation
Defending a claim in the employment tribunal may seem like a complicated process. If you’re facing a claim, our employment law specialists will explain the procedure to you so that you know what to expect and how to prepare.
An employee who brings a claim against you is normally referred to as the ‘Claimant’. You as an employer are the ‘Respondent’.
Tribunals place a great onus on employees and employers following the Acas Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures, even though it’s not in itself a law. If the tribunal finds that either the employee or employer has failed to follow the Code, any award can be increased or decreased by up to 25%.
So it’s very important that you take advice on the procedures, which you should follow to avoid any potential penalties.
Tribunal claims can be extremely time-consuming and complex. The Employment team at Eric Robinson Solicitors advises employees and employers on all aspects of the litigation process, including representing clients at hearings.
