Under UK law, anyone can make a claim to an employment tribunal if they believe they’ve been unlawfully treated by their employer or potential employer. Our employment law advice line protects employers from costly tribunals and HR headaches.
Protect your business from costly employment tribunal claims by ensuring your people are treated fairly and within the parameters of the latest employment legislation.
The latest official figures show that claims to employment tribunals have soared by 90% since the abolition of fees in July 2017.
Dealing with an employment tribunal inevitably costs you and your business money (even if it doesn’t progress to a hearing). Time spent in discussing and preparing for the claim diverts you are your staff away from running and growing your business. The unplanned costs of legal advice and representation can quickly escalate and put unnecessary strain on your finances.
Even the threat of an employment tribunal can be damaging to you, your business and your reputation. Tribunal hearings are generally open to the public, including the media, but even if a claim doesn’t reach that stage, the damage can already have been done.
The best way to avoid a tribunal claim is to avoid disputes arising in the first place. You can reduce the chances of employment issues by implementing the correct documentation and setting out clear policies and procedures in your business.
You can also remove risk by keeping up to date with current employment law and any planned changes in legislation.
This may be time-consuming, but it’s less time-consuming – and less expensive – than appearing before an employment tribunal.
Our employment law advice line removes the hassle of keeping up to date with legislation and provides you with the day to day employment advice you need; protecting your organisation against tribunal claims and improving your reputation as an employer.
