Employment Tribunal Claims & ACAS Conciliation
Involving a solicitor early can be essential to ensure you meet the strict and often complex deadlines that apply for claims that can be made to the Employment Tribunal.
It is essential that ACAS conciliation is commenced at the right time as well as ensuring the correct employer details are used when doing so. Our team can assist with pre claim conciliation and doing so often achieves an early settlement without the need to progress to you issuing a full employment tribunal claim offering a large cost saving in terms of your own legal costs.
Where settlement at early stage is not possible having a solicitor who understands your claim and the issues can ensure that your claim is drafted in the best way possible to achieve the best outcomes whilst also ensuring all elements of your claim are in time ( there can be complex rules where different part of your claims have different deadlines particularly in discrimination cases), but also drafted so that all elements are correctly covered. Ensuring a claim is correctly drafted at the beginning of the claim is important for a number of reasons but can also help a Claimant save costs because there will be less correspondence and dialogue with the employment tribunal and other side to determine the details of the claims being made.
