Workplace disputes & employment tribunals

Tees provides practical legal advice for employers dealing with disputes at work – from preparing procedures to legal representation at employment tribunals.

Disputes and dispute resolution advice for employers

Workplace disputes can happen in any business. We can help you manage disputes proactively, and minimise any potential risk to your business they may present.

Keeping your business moving forward

Our employment law solicitors have a wealth of experience guiding employers through every kind of workplace dispute. We’ve successfully resolved countless disputes caused by issues such as poor performance, misconduct, consistent lateness and discrimination. Our approach is to tackle disputes quickly and firmly, minimising disruption to the day-to-day running of your business. We can also work alongside you on your business disputes and strategies, including advising on any lessons learned or reflections and recommendations if you have issued an employment claim.

How we work with you

Tees regularly advises businesses on workplace disputes. Our services include:

  • Drafting procedures to help your business avoid disputes
  • Training employees (including managers) to follow procedures effectively
  • Support and guidance for disciplinary hearings
  • Advising on appropriate sanctions
  • Dealing with all stages of litigation (including employment tribunals)

If you are facing historic claims being reinstated following the abolition of Tribunal Fees by the Supreme Court we can guide you through what you need to do on this. We can also assist if you are seeking a refund on Tribunal fees ordered to be paid by you on a claim.

We can be involved as much, or as little, as your business requires. We can provide ad hoc advice as required, and prepare guides, scripts and template letters for you to use.

Our costs

We deliver costs transparently, and we always discuss legal costs at the outset. We can agree our level of involvement to be commensurate with your budget, and we may be able to agree fixed fees or capped fees in certain cases.

What to do next
