Employment Tribunals

Workplace disputes can often feel like a drain on management time. Ramsdens can help you to deal with them correctly, fairly and in a timely manner.

In almost every workplace, disputes between employers and employees can occur from time to time. As an employer, you’ll want to ensure that disputes don’t impact negatively on your business and wherever possible, it’s best to resolve differences directly with your employees. However, when disputes cannot be resolved internally, you may need to attend an employment tribunal.

Employment tribunals usually comprise a panel that includes an employment judge and two non-legal people who have experience in the world of business. Witnesses may be put forward for both the employer and the employee and, after hearing the case, the panel will reach a legally-binding decision.

At Ramsdens, our knowledgeable employment solicitors are here to guide you through the entire process. We’ll help you avoid a tribunal where possible by finding alternative ways to deal with disputes. And if you do need to attend a hearing, we will ensure you are fully prepared – supporting you with everything from documentation to obtaining witness statements. We’ll clearly outline all of your options and responsibilities from the start so that together we can plan the best course of action. We’ll make sure you and your business are represented fairly and will keep you informed and in control throughout the process.

Employment law changes regularly and can sometimes seem complex, but at Ramsdens we explain everything in straightforward terms, clearly addressing any concerns you may have.
