Employment tribunal claims

If you’d like to make a claim against your employer, and would like representation in the Employment Tribunal, we can support you.

Before making a claim…

You can’t make an Employment Tribunal claim without going through ‘early conciliation’ first. This is when an organisation called ACAS tries to help you reach an agreement with your employer. You must complete early conciliation by a specific deadline, which is normally 3 months less 1 day from the date of the incident you’d like to main a claim about, or the date of termination of your employment.

We can engage in negotiations to settle your claim through ACAS, or we can support you through the full Employment Tribunal process.

Employment Tribunal claims

Our employment solicitors can assist you through the whole process of making an Employment Tribunal claim, from drafting and submitting the claim to representing you at a final hearing, including dealing with case management directions.

Verisona Law has previously secured large amounts of compensation for employees. Our experienced employment lawyers can support and represent clients in Employment Tribunal claims, the Employment Appeal Tribunal and the Court of Appeal.

Expert guidance

We offer expert guidance from the outset, ensuring that proper consideration is given to matters that will affect the outcome of your case.

These matters could be:

  • Does the Employment Tribunal have jurisdiction to hear your claim, and has a claim been brought within the appropriate limitation period?
  • Have you identified all possible causes of action in your claim? A failure to do this may prevent you from pursuing all relevant arguments and possible claims later on, which may affect the compensation awarded.
  • Has adequate consideration been given to what amount of compensation should be claimed? All claimants are required to document the compensation they are seeking and how this is calculated in a schedule of loss.
  • Have you complied with all relevant case management directions? A failure to do so could lead to your claim being struck out and even an award of costs being made against you.
  • Has your employer provided all relevant documentation and information in respect of your claim? We are often able to obtain orders from the Tribunal instructing employers to disclose further documentation or information that will help support your claim
  • Has adequate consideration been given to what witnesses should be called at the hearing and the contents of any witness statements? Witness statements should be carefully drafted to include all evidence that it is intended will be relied upon at the hearing of the claim.


To make the process as seamless as possible, we can request funding from your insurance if you have legal expenses insurance as part of your home and contents insurance policy. If not, we work with you to find the most cost effective way to pursue your complaint.
