Employment Tribunal FAQs

How much does an Employment Tribunal claim cost?

Our employment lawyers know that clarity on costs is vitally important to our clients.

As standard practice, we give our clients an estimate of the costs involved in undertaking any piece of work, including our legal fees, at the outset.

We then provide cost updates on a regular basis.

How long does it take to have my employment claim heard?

How long it takes for your employment dispute claim to be heard will depend on the complexity of your claim and the volume of claims issued in the Employment Tribunal that is hearing your claim.

It is important to seek legal advice to ensure each step of the Employment Tribunal is handled proactively, professionally, and without delays.

What do I need to do to bring an Employment Tribunal claim?

Going to the Employment Tribunal is usually the final step in an individual's dispute with their employer, and you should try to resolve any dispute internally through a grievance process.

Before you submit an Employment Tribunal claim, you must contact ACAS who can offer to conciliate on a workplace dispute.

This is known as 'early conciliation'. This is when we talk to both you and the respondent about your employment dispute.

It gives you the chance to come to an agreement without having to go to a tribunal.

There are strict time limits on Employment Tribunal claims, which are usually three months from the date of the actions for which you are raising a claim. 

Can I make an employment group action claim?

Employment Group Actions often involve mass redundancies and or 'TUPE', the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006.

Common claims may include claims for redundancy payments, unfair dismissal, unpaid wages, bonuses or other unpaid remuneration, discrimination and failure to inform and consult (in relation to mass redundancies or a business transfer or reorganisation).

However, they can also involve unpaid wages or group grievances.

Collective disputes can be highly complex and require a thoughtful and bespoke approach. Our Employment Group Action solicitors provide clear and straightforward advice, and we are experienced in managing the dynamics of a group action efficiently and effectively.

Our employment solicitors provide professional legal support and have a proven track record. We are focused on achieving effective and affordable results.

There is strength and safety in numbers. In addition to ensuring efficiency and cost-effectiveness, acting as a group or class of employees in legal proceedings is powerful because the combined value of claims can be extremely high – employers cannot ignore group actions.

How much does it cost to bring a group claim to an Employment Tribunal?

The advantage of a group claim is that proceedings can be efficiently managed, and costs can be shared amongst members of a group, particularly where the group uses one lawyer and has agreed shared objectives.

In addition to our specialist legal knowledge in this area, we have extensive experience in managing complexities around funding, cost-sharing and the dynamics of employment-related multi-party disputes and legal actions.

Our specialist employment solicitors will set out the costs clearly, including our own legal fees, at the outset and explain how costs can be minimised throughout.
