Our employment tribunal calculator provides transparent fixed fees for the legal work needed for your potential claim. Costs are calculated depending on whether your claim relates to unfair/constructive dismissal or discrimination.
The difference in costing is because discrimination claims are more time-consuming, usually require longer attendance at a tribunal hearing and need greater legal resources.
Around 80% of our client’s employment tribunal claims settle before the final hearing. We have broken down the key steps in an employment tribunal claim and shown what is included as well as pricing.
All email and telephone correspondence between each step is included free of charge.
Our solicitors often comment on changes to employment law, particularly in relation to employees. Our blogs convey this information in a jargon-free manner. If you would like to read our latest articles, please subscribe.
How long does an employment tribunal claim take?
The time it takes from receipt of an employment tribunal claim to its final conclusion varies considerably based upon any backlog at your local Employment Tribunal, how long the final hearing will last and whether the settlement is achieved before the final hearing in the Employment Tribunal. At present, claims are taking longer than usual to get to a final hearing due to the coronavirus pandemic and so we estimate that your claim will be listed to be heard at a final hearing around nine to twelve months after the claim was received by the Employment Tribunal. This timescale is likely to be much longer where preliminary hearings need to be held and/or the final hearing is two or more days in length. We will of course update you regularly on timescales as your matter progresses.
