Such knowledge is invaluable in trying to avoid problems escalating to a claim but will also prepare you in the event that litigation does arise.
Most contentious employment matters are dealt with in the Employment Tribunals (such as unfair dismissal, whistleblowing, TUPE and discrimination claims). However, parties can also take action through the Courts for high value breach of contract claims and obtaining or defending injunction applications.
Our employment team has a wide range of experience in advising both employers and employees on the whole spectrum of employment litigation in both the Employment Tribunals and the Courts.
All members of our team have advocacy experience and deal with matters varying from simple, unfair dismissal claims to more complex, high value cases including whistleblowing, TUPE, discrimination and group action claims.
We can provide experienced assistance in handling all contentious matters, whether for employers or employees, from start to finish. This includes providing a case assessment at the outset detailing the legal merits of the case, the potential compensation, costs and our suggested approach to the claim.
Our service also includes dealing with all case management steps, including disclosure of documents, drafting witness statements, attending preliminary hearings, as necessary, as well as dealing with any potential mediation and/or settlement issues.
