The decision of the Supreme Court to scrap fees in the Employment Tribunal will make bringing a claim easier for former employees who feel that they were unfairly dismissed.
The temptation is often to try and avoid the cost of instructing an expert lawyer and running the claim for unfair dismissal yourself, but this is, normally, a mistake.
Employment law and the law of unfair dismissal is complex and even the process for assessing the level of compensation can be difficult.
At MJV & Co Solicitors, we offer a no win no fee agreement to clients whose unfair dismissal claims we accept. The fees we charge are capped at a percentage of the amount you recover and so from the outset of any unfair dismissal claim you will know the amount of compensation you will keep as a percentage.
