    Employment Tribunals for Individuals

    Stage 1

    Taking Instructions & Initial Advice

    At this stage we will take instructions from you on the case. We will review the papers and advise you on the merits of the claim and likely compensation.

    Stage 2

    Pre-Claim Conciliation

    In the pre-claim stage it is mandatory to explore whether a settlement can be reached outside of the tribunal.

    Stage 3

    Preparing a Claim/Response

    After the pre-claim stage we will look at preparing a claim on your behalf.

    Throughout this and the following stages we will continue to explore potential settlement and reevaluate likely outcomes and compensation.

    Stage 4

    Preparing for the Hearing

    In preparation for the Final Hearing we will explore which documents will need preparation from you to develop a bundle of documents which will form your evidence. We may be required to attend a Preliminary Hearing to answer any initial queries the judge may have regarding the case.

    We may need to take witness statements, draft statements, and agree content with witnesses at this stage. These sorts of tasks may add greater complexity to the case and increase the time estimate provided above.

    Stage 5

    Final Hearing

    We will prepare for and attend the Final Hearing, which may include providing instructions to Counsel to act on your behalf.
