Where so required and if reasonably possible we will attempt to resolve matters with an agreed resignation as part of a settlement agreement with a financial package and agreed reference.
Employment Law Claims
We are very experienced at raising and defending employment law claims. These can be in the Employment Tribunal or the general Court System. In particular, the contractual jurisdiction of the Employment Tribunal is limited to £25,000, and so any contractual claims above this amount need to be raised in the general court system. Also, claims concerning non-compete covenants and/or breach of confidentiality will have to be brought in the general courts. Our claims work is assisted by our employment law consultant barrister Kevin Harris, who is particularly experienced with discrimination claims.
We act and can represent both employers and employees.
In suitable cases, we will also consider damages based/no win no fee agreement.
We can assist with both the Defence and Prosecution of employment-related claims including the following :
