How we can help
If your UK business receives an employment claim, it’s important to take prompt and appropriate action. Seek advice from an experienced employment expert, like ours at Oracle Solicitors, who can guide you through the process and provide a thorough assessment of the claim. We help you understand your rights and obligations, evaluate the merits of the claim, and develop an effective defence strategy. Make sure that you collect all the relevant evidence including employment contracts, policies, disciplinary records, performance evaluations, and any other evidence that supports your position.
We then address each allegation, providing factual explanations, evidence, and legal arguments to support your defence. Failure to respond within the specified timeframe could have adverse consequences, so it’s crucial to act promptly.
When defending an employment claim, several potential outcomes can arise, including:
Success: If your defence is successful, the claim may be dismissed, and no further action will be taken against your business. The employee’s allegations will be deemed unfounded or lacking sufficient evidence.
Settlement: In some cases, parties may choose to settle the employment claim through negotiation or mediation. This involves reaching an agreement that satisfies both parties’ interests, potentially avoiding the need for further legal proceedings.
Tribunal Decision: If the claim proceeds to an employment tribunal, a decision will be made based on the evidence presented. The tribunal may either uphold the claim, partially uphold it, or dismiss it entirely. Depending on the outcome, your business may be required to pay compensation or face other consequences.
