Well over 100,000 applications are made to the Employment Tribunals service each year.
It is therefore vital to have professional representation. Xact provides a full employment tribunal advocacy service through our team of employment law specialists which has over 50 years' experience handling tribunals throughout the UK.
With the jurisdiction of Employment Tribunals constantly expanding, applications for sex discrimination, race discrimination, disability discrimination and equal pay are now being regularly received. For example, the jurisdiction of Employment Tribunals on unfair dismissal alone now embraces a vast number of complex areas, including trade union matters, pregnancy, parental or family leave, asserting a statutory right, health & safety, Sunday working as well as issues connected with the Working Time Regulations, National Minimum Wage and the Tax Credit Act 1999.
Research shows that parties who are professionally represented are far more likely to win their case than those who "go it alone".
It is rare for Employment Tribunals to award costs or expenses against the losing party, even where the case has seemed hopeless. Even if you win your case, this means that in addition to losing valuable management time defending an employment tribunal claim, it could also cost you thousands of pounds in professional fees
In addition to litigating on behalf of our own clients, we are retained by a number of HR consultancies to handle their clients Employment Tribunal litigation. Our team handles hundreds of cases each year; the vast majority having successful outcomes for our clients.
Even if you do not wish to subscribe to our retained annual service, you can still instruct our Employment Tribunal Representation Unit on a case by case basis.
