The employment team at Rix & Kay have extensive experience in representing claimants and respondents in the Employment Tribunal appearing regularly in Croydon, London, Ashford and Southampton and sometimes even further afield.
As the team represent both employers and employees, they are able to offer balanced advice and have a better understanding of the issues involved. Rix & Kay have represented clients in a wide range of cases from multi-day discrimination cases to straightforward unfair dismissal claims.
We have a good working relationship with Counsel and whilst we do undertake our own advocacy, we will use Counsel where appropriate Since April 2014 an employee is required to apply to ACAS for conciliation or mediation with an employer before they are permitted to apply to the Employment Tribunal.
The employment team are able to assist potential claimants or employers in connection with the process and would recommend that the process is paid more than lip-service as if there is a possibility of a resolution, it will save both parties the considerable cost and stress of going to an Employment Tribunal.
