Gorvins Approach to Employment Tribunal Claims

Our experts will give you the best prospect of achieving your desired result and we are ready and able to fight with every rule and means possible to defend a case, or engage in negotiations to resolve the case on as favourable terms as possible; either way – giving you the best advice to achieve your desired result.

We can be as involved in a Tribunal defence as you would like, either taking all the weight from your shoulders in running the case for you or simply assisting you behind the scenes in situations where you feel confident enough to lead and present the case on your own.

Although the Employment Tribunal system is designed to be less formal than some other courts, it still carries full legal force and should therefore not be taken lightly. Once a claimant’s ET1 Form is received, a business is placed into the position of the ‘Respondent’ and should not delay in preparing their defence which will include preparing documentation and witnesses for the hearing. It may also be that you will need to consider bringing a counter-claim for breach of contract.

In circumstances where a business faces a claim, the business-centred services and experience available through Gorvins can help lead a respondent’s defence to its best conclusion making the process as smooth as possible and with great efficiency.
