Dispute at work
If you experience a dispute at work and cannot resolve it, you may wish to make a claim to an employment tribunal.
Seeking advice from our employment law team before, or at an early stage in, proceedings will ensure your case is prepared correctly and you are represented fairly. We will discuss the possible outcomes of your case and give you an idea of the range of compensation you might get if you win your case in the tribunal.
Settle your claim
Our lawyers may recommend other alternatives routes to resolving your employment dispute. We can negotiate on your behalf to help try and settle your claim with your employer, agreeing on terms before proceeding to the tribunal hearing.
Some employers may agree an outcome through a Settlement Agreement. This agreement usually requires that you agree not to take your case to the employment tribunal, and your employer agrees to pay you compensation.
There might be other conditions in the agreement, for example about confidentiality. For a settlement agreement to be legally binding, you must get independent legal advice prior to signing.
Our employment lawyers have a wealth of experience with negotiating settlement agreements on behalf of directors and senior executives, ensuring the right results are achieved for our clients.
Judicial mediation is another alternative way of resolving a dispute with your employer without the need to go to a full hearing. An employment judge will suggest to both parties that mediation might be a good way to resolve the issues with the help of an impartial mediator.
If you need advice on the most effective way to resolve a workplace dispute, our employment law experts can assist you with any of the routes available.
We pride ourselves on achieving the best possible and most cost effective outcomes for our clients, be that through pursuing a strike out of some or all of a claim or defence or negotiating an appropriate settlement.
Our Employee Lawyers can advise employees on the legalities of any tribunal claims, as well as a wide variety of other legal issues including discrimination claims such as age discrimination or racial discrimination, contract issues, unfair dismissal and redundancy, flexible working and parental rights and more.
