Employment Litigation

Internal dispute resolution is self evidently the most advisable course of action to avoid employment litigation (see Grievances and Disciplinaries).

However, given the ease for individuals to raise Tribunal claims, employment litigation is an inevitability and increasingly commonplace.


We can advise and assist you through all steps of an Employment Tribunal procedure, from drafting and filing a Response (ET3) to a Claim (ET1), through to preparing the case for a Hearing and representing you at the Tribunal.
