Many of our competitors will tell you that the number of employees and former employees going to tribunal continues to increase. However, with the introduction of fees for Claimants the number of applications is in fact decreasing – in some cases quite dramatically.
Overall, there are areas where there are an increasing number of claims for example cases involving TUPE and complex discrimination. However, the number of unfair dismissal claims have reduced.
To give you an idea of our fixed fee: a 2 day hearing with a maximum of 3 witness to defend a claim of Unfair Dismissal would normally cost no more than £3,000 plus vat and expenses.
This is based on a daily rate of £750 and is made up of 2 days attending the hearing and up to 2 days of preparation.
The preparation normally includes meeting you and any witnesses, taking statements, drafting the ET3 (the employers response to the Claim), dealing with ACAS and early conciliation and any Preliminary Hearings prior to the full Tribunal Hearing.
