Outcomes we can achieve for you
These are some of the possible outcomes we can achieve for you:
Advise you on the options you can pursue to resolve the dispute.
Advise on bonuses where an employee is dismissed or breaches a restrictive covenant.
Advise on any contractual or discretionary obligations.
Important things to consider
Here are some things you should be aware of if an employee raises a grievance against you:
- Our lawyers are highly experienced in handling many types of bonus related disputes including, but not limited to: bonuses whilst on maternity.
- An employee may make a claim for non-payment of wages, bonus or commission at an employment tribunal.
- Often there are limited grounds for an employer to recover costs in the employment tribunal.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you defend a grievance raised by an employee regarding bonus payments, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a commercial insurance policy which includes Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) cover, your legal costs may be covered by your policy (subject to the terms and conditions of the policy). If you are unsure if your insurance policy includes LEI cover, we will check this with you.
No Legal Expenses Insurance
If you do not have this cover, we have a host of fee options which we will tailor to suit your needs. We offer fixed fees and discounted hourly rates. Our employment law specialists will be happy to explain these options to you.
