Stages Involved in Employment Law

  • Taking initial instructions, reviewing documents and advising on merits and compensation (this is likely to change throughout a case)
  • Contacting ACAS to certify that we can proceed on behalf of the client
  • If the case proceeds, filing of an ET1 form online and waiting the response of the ET3 form from the employer
  • Taking of witness statements, dealing with disclosure of documents and evidence to support claim
  • Complying with court orders, case management hearings and directions from the court
  • Preparing bundles for trials including skeleton argument trial

Additional information

The minimum cost for this will be £4000 excluding cost of being represented in court for 1 day, which is £850. There is no VAT cost for our services. However, there will be a VAT charge of 20% if your case needs to be referred to a barrister in chambers.
Employment cases can take anywhere between 6 – 12 months from the point of first contact with the client to reaching a resolution, whether that is inside or outside of court. Cases are usually shorter were the client and the employer respond quicker to procedures such as the ET1 and ET3 forms. However, procedures within the court can extend the duration of a case.
