Your legal support

Employment law for business is constantly changing and is becoming ever more complex, so there are legal pitfalls even for businesses that do their best to act within the law. If you lack the in-house legal resources to cover this, or are simply busy, we can provide the solution, by reviewing and developing your policies and practices, in line with your business and the law.

Being a good employer should be part of any brand or business strategy and we can help you add this dimension to your plans, by bringing years of HR experience to the table. Additionally we can advise you on sensitive issues such as redundancy programmes, employee grievances, tribunal claims and terminating employment.

What our clients say about us

"I was recommended to Verisona Law by a friend who is a property lawyer with regard to an employment issue. My initial phone conversation with Sue Ball and following meeting and phone queries with Stephen Ryde-Weller were dealt with in a relaxed, but, informed manner. Nothing seemed too much trouble. I would recommend Verisona Law to anyone who is seeking employment advice."

"Sue was easy to deal with and offered all options available. Jane was in contact beforehand to tell me what information was needed and Sue was prepared for our meeting. I cannot praise Sue and Jane enough and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Sue and her team."

"I am extremely pleased with my recent dealings with your firm and will be back as and when I might be in need of legal representation in the future."

Legally enforcing the tribunal award

To enforce the Tribunal award we applied to the Defendant’s local County Court for it to be registered and for permission to enforce the award.  

The Court granted the application and on the Register of Judgments, Orders and Fines.  As a result the Tribunal award would appear as a County Court Judgment which would likely affect the Defendant’s credit rating. 

Time limits for enforcing Tribunal awards

It is worth noting that there is no time restriction for registering or enforcing a Tribunal award. You can enforce one even if it is several years old.  In addition, it is usually possible to claim interest on the amount until you receive payment.
