Does it discriminate based on race, colour, sexuality and gender identity? It’s important to respect diversity and gender equality in an work environment. Or, the National Employment Rights Authority will have a say. So it’s high time organizations took a look at the paperwork and termination policy. Our professionals for employees will help you perfect the policies and face the tribunal.
How to avoid going to court?
It may be faster and better to keep the case away from the court and solve it through conciliation, compromise or mediation. Often, alternative arbitration brings about a peaceful and quick solution to the dispute. Our specialists may be inclined to mediate between the conflicting parties through civil litigation and mediation. A written contract may be changed in the light of a new agreement between the involved parties. These alternative paths can lead to a better result for both parties without involving the court. However, the arbitration process often fail and lead to litigation. Instances like bullying and harassment usually require legal help. We assist clients to form new contracts arising from alternative arbitration.
Who pays for an employment tribunal?
It doesn’t cost anything to apply to employment tribunal.
If you lose the case, there is a very small chance that the judge may order you to pay for the employer’s financial loss. However, this is a rare case. As we’ve seen, this happens for lower than 1% cases. A lawyer might tell you that they’re going to make you pay. But it’s usually to scare you into giving up. But if you filed a deceitful case only to harass your employer, the tribunal might make you pay for the employer’s loss.
Please, be advised to behave well in the tribunal as it may determine whether you have to pay or not.
