Employment Early Case Assessment – Have You Got A Claim?

Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

If your relationship with your employer breaks down, it can be difficult to know when to stand your ground.

Have you got a case? Is there a good chance of success? How long could it take to resolve? And that’s on top of dealing with a situation that is potentially stressful and emotionally draining.

That’s why we offer an ‘Early Case Assessment‘ – a fixed price consultation that will help you see the way forward: to give to clarity on the best course of action. In short, we’ll help you to see ‘the wood for the trees’ .

At Wilson Browne Solicitors, we understand that one of the most pressing questions for employees involved in a dispute with their employer is, ‘do I have a case and, if so, what’s it worth?’

To help answer this question, we provide an early case assessment for a fixed fee of £300 plus VAT. The assessment includes:

• a consultation of up to one hour with a specialist employment solicitor experienced in employment tribunal claims.
• identifying potential claims you could bring
• An initial view on the strength of those claims*, and
• the likely value of those claims,
• How to lodge your claim,
• Claim management, and
• any alternative avenues available to you to resolve the dispute, such as settlement agreements.

The early case assessment is intended to guide you when it comes to deciding on the best way of dealing with your dispute; we’ll provide you with specific advice based on your circumstances., rather than the generic advice which may otherwise be provided as part of a free initial consultation.

The early case assessment does not include a review of any documents relevant to your dispute, but these can, of course, be discussed with your solicitor during the assessment.

However, some more complex cases may benefit from a thorough review of any relevant documents. To help us identify those cases, we ask that you complete a questionnaire in advance of your assessment. If we decide that an early case assessment may not be suitable, we will let you know and provide you with some alternative options.

Following the first assessment, we will recommend regular reviews at certain milestones (for example, after disclosure of documents) as the strength and value of claims can change as they progress and as more information comes to light.

If you’re interested in obtaining an expert view on your employment dispute, please get in touch with a member of Employment Team.

*We’ll give you an informed and pragmatic view based on our knowledge, expertise and experience but please be aware we cannot guarantee the outcome of any litigation.
