No Win No Fee Employment Law
What is no-win no-fee employment law?
No-win no fee means that you only pay legal fees incurred in pursuing your claim if your claim is successful. If your claim is not successful then you do not have to pay legal fees. If you do recover compensation then the legal fees due will be an agreed percentage (no more than 35%) from your compensation. You will remain responsible for paying the Employment Tribunal’s fees.
Could an employment solicitor help you on a no-win, no-fee basis?
The first step is for an assessment of your case to be carried out to determine if case is likely to win and if the likely compensation will be sufficient. As long as both of these requirements are satisfied then you would be eligible for representation on a no-win, no-fee basis.

How much you could claim?
This depends on the type of claim you are making. For Unfair Dismissal claims, for example, there is a cap in place on the compensatory award of whichever is the lower of £78,335 or 52 weeks’ gross pay.
When to seek a lawyer’s advice?
You should seek advice from a lawyer as soon as possible given that most employment claims must be commenced within three months of the date of the act you are complaining of. A lawyer can assist you in drafting a grievance, can help prepare you for a disciplinary hearing or prepare an appeal against a disciplinary sanction. They may also be able to negotiate your exit from the company if you are unhappy.
