Defending unfair & wrongful dismissal claims
When you are running a business, your staff are at the heart of it. Unfortunately, sometimes things do not always work as you expect and an employee or someone else may bring a tribunal claim against your business.

The Tribunal is an independent body set up listen to any grievance raised at a hearing before deciding on the outcome of the hearing. If the Claimant is successful the tribunal may order that you pay them compensation or to reinstate the Claimant.
ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) will also try to assist in resolving the matter with a process called conciliation. This is where both parties try to resolve the dispute by agreement without the tribunals help. This is generally a cheaper method for resolving claims.
