Bringing a Tribunal Claim (advice for employees)

Should you instruct us to proceed with lodging a claim at the Employment Tribunal we shall be required to firstly engage with ACAS.

We shall then particularise your claim and set out your losses in writing in order that a detailed ET1 claim form can be lodged with the Tribunal.

It can be difficult for us to estimate what costs you will incur for us to carry out this service, however we anticipate that you will incur costs in the region of £1,000 to £2,000 + VAT.

Our fees are calculated in accordance with the amount of time which is spent on your case and are charged at an hourly rate. Our rates are dependent on the years of legal experience and qualification and are set out as follows:
  • Paralegal / Trainee Solicitor - £120.00 + VAT per hour
  • Solicitor under 4 years PQE - £150.00 + VAT per hour
  • Solicitor over 8 years PQE - £200.00 + VAT per hour
We anticipate that after lodging the ET1 your estimated legal fees up to and including trial may be £6,000 to £9,000 + VAT.

Please note our costs estimate do not include disbursements such as Counsel’s fees or any expert evidence fees. Although, we are pleased to say that there are no longer any Employment Tribunal fees for lodging the ET1 forms. Should your claim proceed to trial you may wish to instruct a barrister whose fees shall vary on the complexity of the case and the experience of the barrister.
