Our legal team at Chris Alexander Solicitors consists of lawyers who possess years of experience in Employment Law. We offer advice to employers and employees in relation to their rights and obligations.
We can assist with the following types of employment issues:
- Unfair and Wrongful Dismissal
- Discrimination and Equal Opportunities
- Sickness and Sick Pay
- Whistle blowing
- Employment Contract
- Settlement Agreements
- Transfer of Undertakings
- Employment Tribunal Representation
Our team have effected settlements during employment proceedings between employers and employees. We have successfully prepared and conducted employment proceedings in the Employment Tribunal from the taking of initial instructions from clients, advocating at interim hearings and at trial.
The time frame from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation/negotiation, your case is likely to take 3-6 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take 9-12 months.
This time frame is an estimate and may change should any unforeseen complexities arise. We will always inform and provide you with a revised estimate.
We offer an initial fixed consultation fee of £100 (excluding VAT) during which we can provide you with an initial assessment of your situation and prospects of success and likely compensation if successful. We will advise you on the law and the way forward in relation to your matter. Thereafter we try to undertake work on a fixed fee basis where ever we can so that you are able to budget and make informed decisions.
We have a standard fee (excluding VAT) for any employment matters we carry out and you can find our fees in our employment fee table on our website. We will advise you on our fee upfront before commencing work on your matter. Our fees are easy to understand and we will ensure that everything about the costs associated with your case is explained to you in full. Our professional fee will not change unless the original information we are given is shown to be incorrect or circumstances change.
As part of our aim to assist people in getting access to justice, we are able to, where appropriate, to pursue an employment matter on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. Should your claim be unsuccessful, you will not have to pay any fee.
We offer to assist our clients on the basis that our fee is 25% (excluding VAT) of any damages that we recover on behalf of our clients. Upon your request, we can provide with our standard no win no fee agreement for your consideration.
