Employment Tribunal Pricing For Employees

Thank you for looking at our services for Employment Law.  We regularly advise employees on Employment Tribunal claims, Settlement Agreements and all other aspects of employment disputes.  Our clients range from Directors and Senior Executives through to entry level workers.

As an employee you have certain rights that employers must respect.  If you believe you are being bullied, victimised, discriminated against or otherwise unfairly treated, or that you have been unfairly dismissed, getting the right legal advice as soon as possible is vital.  This will allow you to establish whether you have grounds for a claim and what compensation you may be entitled to.  Our employment lawyers offer clear advice and practical support to help you secure the best possible outcome as quickly and simply as possible.  We aim to be completely transparent about our pricing so you can be confident our fees are fair, and you are getting good value for money.

Our employment lawyers can apply their extensive knowledge, skills and experience to help resolve the specific issues that you are facing and provide as much help as is required.  Depending on the situation, options may involve legal processes, or a solution designed to avoid legal conflict for example Mediation.  We specialise in giving sensible, timely, practical advice when you need it to help you choose the best course of action.

Whether you are an individual or business, we are confident that we will deliver an efficient professional service and fulfil all of your requirements.

Our fees for bringing claims for unfair and wrongful dismissal will include:-

  • Filling out and submitting a claim form ET1 outlining your case to the relevant Tribunal centre.
  • Reviewing your former employer’s response to the claim, ET3
  • Reviewing documentation received setting out the factual and legal basis of the claim.
  • Reviewing any Orders made by the Court.
  • Making any further applications to the Tribunal on your behalf.
  • Whether an Employment Tribunal hearing is required.


We offer a fixed fee price for initial consultation of £75.00 plus VAT of £15.00 making a total of £90.00.  In the current economic climate, we recognise more than ever the need to provide our employment legal services at a reasonable cost.  At Worthingtons, we are innovative in our approach to providing packages which are appropriate for you as an individual or business.

The time that it takes from taking your instructions to the final resolution of this matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved.

If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 2 to 8 weeks.  If your claim proceeds to a final hearing, your case is likely to take 26 to 52 weeks. (These are estimates and of course we will be able to give you more accurate timescales as the matter progresses).

  • Taking your instructions, reviewing the papers and advising you on merits and likely compensation (this is likely to be revisited throughout the matter and subject to change).
  • Entering into pre-claim conciliation where this is mandatory to explore whether a settlement can be reached.
  • Preparing your claim.
