Worried About an Employee Bringing an Employment Tribunal Claim Against You? We Have the Answer!

By Gary Smith


Since Employment Tribunal fees were scrapped in the summer of 2017, the number of claims being brought by disgruntled employees has risen dramatically.

We provide expert employment advice to help ensure that you comply with the law and to reduce the risk of claims being pursued, but at present there is nothing to stop an employee from bringing a claim even if they don’t have a case against you. They would not have to pay anything to do so, even if their claim is unsuccessful. This is a huge concern for many employers and can result in significant costs being incurred.

Our solution is to offer you Employment Tribunal insurance. This means that as long as you follow our advice when an employment issue arises, the insurance will cover your costs and any compensation that may be awarded to an employee in the event that they do decide to pursue matters further and their claim is successful.

This significantly reduces the stress caused to an employer in the event of a difficult employment situation, without a hefty bill landing in your inbox at the end of each month whilst a dispute is ongoing. Instead, the cost is fixed and you will receive unlimited advice from us with the certainty of knowing that any claims will be covered.

We pride ourselves on taking the time to get to know and understand our clients businesses. Unlike the advice you might receive where legal expenses insurance is part of a wider policy, we provide a much more personal experience and you will be assigned a dedicated solicitor instead of being passed from pillar to post. This ensures that you receive consistent advice and can be confident that whatever the employment law issue, it is being dealt with in the most appropriate and risk free way.
