If you have received an ET1 form from the Employment tribunal service, Solve can help.
Employment Tribunal Services
Receiving papers from the employment tribunal office can be worrying for most employers, regardless of how well a scenario was handled in the first instance. We can take the stress out of the situation, mitigate your losses and get solutions.
Some top tips if you receive notice of an Employment Tribunal claim:
Work out what you have received. Employees no longer need to pay a fee to submit an employment tribunal claim, however they do need to go through the early conciliation process. You may have received notice that early conciliation has started. Most ex- employees are legally bound to undertake this process however, there are some exemptions.
Remember time is of the essence! It is crucial for you to respond to the ET1 (Notice of a Claim) within 28 days giving your defence for each claim in turn. Should you fail to respond to the employment tribunal service as required you run the risk of being debarred and therefore unable to defend the tribunal claim leaving your (ex) employee free to pursue their claim unchallenged.
Get some expert HR and Employment Law advice and conduct a risk assessment of your possible chances in winning. Then look at the costs involved. Often settling can cost a lot less than expensive legal fees.
Navigating the early conciliation process, working with an ACAS conciliator and then separately with the employment tribunal office can be complex. However, get it right and it can save you thousands in legal fees.
Solve can do this for you and we guarantee that you will spend half the costs on a solution than you would on a solicitor. Additionally, there is no requirement to sign up to a lengthy retainer with Solve to get this solution.
