Fixed Fee scheme for claims in the Employment Tribunal
(Subject to Contract)

The Agreement shall only cover the defence of employment based work in the Employment Tribunal and only apply to where the Tribunal is based in London or Watford. We may agree to accept the fixed fee to other Tribunals with additional charges such as travel and subsistence.

All fees are exclusive of VAT and any expert or Tribunal fees payable.

The process of defending a claim can be divided into four stages:

If the case involves a claim for discrimination or is complicated or unclear the ET may list the case for a Pre-Hearing Review/Case Management Discussion.

Some cases may also be referred for judicial mediation or a mediation  meeting via Acas if the parties agree.

In order to fully prepare for the case it may be necessary or advisable to have a conference with the client or the client may wish to have a conference at various stages of the case. Our firm is entitled to require a conference if this should be considered reasonably necessary.

The complexity and cost of the case is dependent upon the length of the hearing and costs of services are set upon that basis.

Any work undertaken outside of the below fixed fee structure with your express or implied authorisation, will be charged at our firms normal private time cost rates. This will include the time of any settlement negotiations and any witness statements in addition to a statement from yourself. 

Tribunal fees will additionally need to be paid by the client over and above these fixed fee scale rates.
