Whether you believe you’ve been discriminated against by your employer or you think you’ve been unfairly dismissed from your job, Redmans can help you with a claim in the Employment Tribunal. Our solicitors offer advice on your case, representation at preliminary hearings and representation at full Employment Tribunal hearings. We will consider your case and the process that has been followed by your employer in order to advise you of your rights, how to fight your case, and what compensation may be available to you, whether through the Employment Tribunal or via an out of court settlement.

- Discrimination claims (whether age, race, sex, disability, sexual orientation or otherwise)
- An employer’s failure to deal properly with a flexible working request
- Harassment claims (including sexual harassment claims)
- Victimization claims
- Unfair dismissal claims
- Constructive dismissal claims
- Whistleblowing claims
It’s not just about explaining the law – we take the time and effort to outline the steps open to you, reassuring you that you’re on the right track regarding your claim,l and your options.
How our specialist lawyers will deal with your Employment Tribunal case
Our solicitors are responsive, practical, and expert in matters involving employment law and employment tribunal claims. Whether your case involves discrimination, harassment, whistleblowing or dismissal, we can advise you on your legal position and how to best address potential legal issues with your employer.
Redmans’s dedicated team of expert lawyers has extensive experience of Employment Tribunal claims. We recognise that our clients can be in very different circumstances in relation to dismissal, from amicable to highly acrimonious: some undergoing disciplinary and dismissal procedures that may involve hearings and appeals; some cases where there may be allegations of discrimination, harassment and bullying; other cases where an employee is victimized or bullied because they have made a ‘protected disclosure’ (also known as “whistleblowing”), and sometimes where the employee is leaving their employment by mutual agreement but require advice on the negotiation and drafting of a severance package. Your employer has an obligation under the Employment Rights Act 1996 to treat you both procedurally and substantively fairly when disciplining you or dismissing you, and also has obligations not to discriminate against you, harass you, or victimize you under the Equality Act 2010. A failure to meet these obligations may mean you have a successful claim in the Employment Tribunal.
We offer representation and advice at all stages of an Employment Tribunal, including the issuing of your claim, at Case Management Discussions, Pre-Hearing Reviews, and at Employment Tribunal hearings (whether they relate to liability or remedy).
We can advise you of the value of your claim in your circumstances, and help you in reaching a good deal. We can also negotiate termination packages on your behalf and offer tax advice. Where you are called to attend disciplinary or dismissal hearings, we can advise you throughout the process and, depending on the circumstances, may be able to represent you at any internal hearing. We can also advise you on the ACAS Early Conciliation process and on Employment Tribunal fees.
We offer representation at the Employment Tribunal on a fixed fee or hourly basis, depending on what is appropriate in the circumstances. We also offer “no win no fee agreements” if it is appropriate in the circumstances.
No win no fee funding available
Redmans offer no win no fee funding agreements to clients in appropriate cases.
