Once a claim form has been issued, the time to respond to the claim starts to run. A failure to submit a response by the Tribunal’s deadline, can ultimately lead to a default judgment in the claimant’s favour.
The consequences of failing to robustly manage a claim can be expensive and damaging to your organisation’s reputation.
The earlier you can contact us the more effectively we will be able to manage the claim for you.
We will advise you on the merits of a case at an early stage and we will keep in regular contact with you as the claim progresses through the Employment Tribunal system.
At Furley Page, we will also discuss all options in relation to resolving a dispute with you as we appreciate there is a sensitive balance to be drawn, between sending the right message out to staff, the management time spent and costs incurred in defending a claim to a hearing.
Not every dispute can be resolved without recourse to litigation and occasionally, some differences are simply irreconcilable.
Claims are sometimes so unrealistic or unjustified that settlement would not be wise. In these circumstances, you can rely on us to vigorously defend the claim in an expert yet cost effective manner.
Employment law is complex and fast evolving and Employment Tribunal litigation in particular, is not for the faint hearted.
We have an excellent success rate in Tribunal litigation through a combination of our tenacity, unprecedented expertise and wealth of experience in such cases.
