Employment law is complicated and few people have a clear idea of all their rights at work, which is why it is so important to get legal advice as soon as you face a problem.
How DAS Law can help you
Our highly experienced team of over 30 employment lawyers can provide you with practical legal advice and representation at an Employment Tribunal if you need to bring a claim against your employer.
If you feel you have been treated unfairly and you have not found a solution with your employer, you may want to bring your complaint to an employment tribunal. We will guide you through the tribunal process by doing the following:
Listen to what problems you are facing.
Review the documents in your case and advise you on the prospects of your case succeeding.
Prepare a schedule of loss setting out what you are likely to receive if you are successful in your claim.
Engage in settlement discussions and early conciliation with your employer.
Prepare a letter before action, if appropriate.
Prepare ET1 form to pursue your claim in an Employment Tribunal.
Prepare your case for a hearing including reviewing the documents that both you and your employer wish to rely on, prepare yours and your witness statement and instruct a Barrister to represent you.
Important things to consider
Here are some important things you should be aware of regarding your claim against your employer.
- There is now a requirement to enter into early conciliation via the services of ACAS who are an independent advisory body to facilitate settlements wherever possible, before you are able to bring your complaint to an Employment Tribunal.
- As well as keeping copies of all relevant documents relevant to your dispute, it is important to keep a record of when things happened so that you can rely on this if you go to an employment tribunal.
How much will it cost?
If you would like DAS Law to help you bring a claim against your employer, there are a number of ways of funding your legal costs, including:
Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI)
If you have a motor or home 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.
If you do not have LEI cover, we can still deal with your dispute on a fixed fee basis, offering you clarity on your legal costs.
Our employment law specialists will be happy to explain all of these options to you.
