End-to-End Conduct of Employment Tribunal Cases

Benefit from no ongoing costs. Our fees for dealing with Employment Tribunal cases on an ad hoc basis vary depending on the complexity of the case, the number of witnesses, the length of the hearing and whether attendance in person is required.

An example timeline for an Employment Tribunal case:

  • Document Disclosure and Tribunal Bundle Preparation: Consideration of documents provided by client and other side, consideration of issues of legal privilege, assessing provenance (to include consideration of metadata in electronic files), probative value and relevance generally. Drafting list of documents followed by draft bundle index, consolidating draft bundle, pagination and document production.

  • Witness Statements: Drafting effective and persuasive witness statements to include taking initial draft witness statements, assessing for relevance / evidential relevance in respect of disputed issues of fact and ensuring key documents are cross-referenced and put in evidence. The process also includes considering all issues of law and ensuring compliance with the procedural rules.
