Employment Tribunals in England and Wales
In some circumstances, it is inevitable that an employment dispute between an employee and an employer will end up in litigation at an Employment Tribunal.
Our Employment Law Solicitors are committed to the Alternative Dispute Resolution process, using procedures such as Mediation, ACAS Early Conciliation and negotiation rather than litigation to resolve disputes. But sometimes the relationship between the employee and employer is so fraught, only litigation will resolve the dispute in question.
Employment Tribunal Representation
One of the advantages we give to our Employment Tribunal clients is a fixed fee which is agreed upfront before any work starts.
Litigation can be very costly but with our fixed fee pricing you will know exactly how much you will have to pay - with no nasty surprises.
Once we have provided you with a written quote for the agreed work to be done, that price will not change. As part of the Co-op Group our values of openness, honesty, social responsibility and caring for others are core to the service we provide.
We are also unfailingly honest with our clients – if we do not think your claim has a good chance of being successful, we will discuss other more cost-effective solutions with you.

Time Limits for Employment Tribunal Claims
Time limits apply to all employment tribunal claims so it is imperative to contact our Employment Law Solicitors as soon as possible. Failure to present a claim within the relevant time limit puts the claim outside the Employment Tribunal's jurisdiction, which means that the tribunal cannot hear the claim unless there are grounds to grant an extension to the normal time limit.
Employment Tribunal Fees
In addition to our fixed fee, the following fees apply in employment tribunal claims:
- Issue fee, paid when a claim is presented to an employment tribunal
- Hearing fee, paid on a specified notice accompanying the notification of the listing of a final hearing of the claim
- Application fee, where a party makes certain applications
- Judicial mediation fee (payable by the employer), where the parties agree to attend a judicial mediation to try to resolve the dispute
The amount of the fees depends upon the type of claim and how many claimants are involved in the claim. We will include the relevant Employment Tribunal fees in our fixed fee quote.
