Bringing a claim in the employment tribunal
We often advise employees and senior executives on complex and high value employment disputes.
We have an excellent track-record of success in bringing employment tribunal claims and we have substantial experience of complex and sensitive claims. Our team can help prepare your ET1, and grounds of complaint; but they are often called upon to advise at an earlier stage – as part of a disciplinary procedure, grievance procedure, performance management process, or redundancy consultation procedure – to advise on strategy and tactics.
We seek to resolve disputes by the most appropriate method whether via litigation in the employment tribunal or employment appeal tribunal; or via negotiation with your employer and/or their solicitors, ACAS conciliation or mediation.
We can advise on all employment related claims in the employment tribunal and employment appeal tribunal; including:
- Complex and sensitive discrimination claims
- Unfair dismissal – including automatically unfair dismissal – claims
- TUPE related dismissal claims
- Wrongful dismissal claims
- Unlawful deductions from wages claims
- Whistleblowing claims
- Equal pay claims
- Breach of contract
“At a time when it was important to have someone in my corner, Philip was really great at working through the issues and coming up with practical solutions. His knowledge of Employment law was first-rate and I found his judgment and negotiation skills to both be of the highest order”. Former director of FTSE 100 company.
“I have worked with Philip on a number of employment-law cases and have always appreciated his attention to detail, his thorough understanding of the issues and his incisiveness. He seems, at times, to have inexhaustible reserves of energy and drive. In my view, Philip is an excellent lawyer who is not only reassuringly practical but who also has a comprehensive and detailed knowledge of employment law”. Elliot Gold, Barrister, Sergeant’s Inn
We look forward to working with you.
Philip Henson, Partner and Head of Employment
