Employment tribunal representation is critical to maximise the chances of success in what is a contentious issue with both sides with a lot to lose financially and reputationally . It is a very anxious time whether deciding to pursue an employment matter at an employment tribunal or if your business have been named as a Respondent in a case. As an Applicant or a Respondent in a case, an accurate and timely evaluation of the merits of the case is essential and can save money in the long term.
As well as an evaluation of the case, our employment tribunal representation service gives clients advice and support to navigate through the employment tribunal procedures. Responding to requests for information is time consuming and often responses need to be submitted to specific deadlines. Fail to respond and you may lose your right to make a claim or defend the case. If you make the wrong response it can have critical consequences to your case; in short it can be a confusing minefield to the inexperienced and unwary and be a time consuming distraction from your business or getting on with your life.
