Who Needs a Lawyer? (Infographic)

The Employment Tribunal is not a 'Court of Law' and is not bound by strict court rules thereby making it a less formal and less intimidating experience than it might be otherwise. It is intended that applicants will be better able to deal worth their claim without legal representation however most employees will be represented by a solicitor or barrister and it is therefore in the applicant’s interests to be also represented by a legal expert.

The Employment Tribunal does not award legal costs in their Judgement which means that the solicitor’s legal fee for carrying out the work must be paid by the represented party on a private basis.

If you have been unlawfully or unfairly dismissed or if you have been the victim of discrimination, harassment or victimisation whilst at work or in a work related situation you should contact our solicitors by using the helpline and you will receive free legal advice on employment law without charge and further obligation. We also advise on redundancy payments, sham redundancy and settlement agreements.
