Price Transparency Employment Matters

If you are not a member of a trade union we can still act for you concerning your employment matter.  If you require legal advice on an issue that will not require litigation then we charge £200.00 per hour for our services. 

It is likely that we will ask for some money in advance before beginning work.  We will inform you of the number of hours of work that we will need to bill for in advance.  It is hard to give an estimate of costs without understanding the particular task that you wish us to carry out but if you wanted some advice on a contract that is likely to take two or three hours, similarly if you wanted some advice on a Settlement Agreement that is likely to take two or three hours on average.

We will charge VAT on our fees.

If you need advice on a matter that may lead to litigation at an employment tribunal then our fees remain £200.00 per hour plus VAT. 

We will estimate the number of hours we will need to carry out work in order to advise you whether your claim has reasonable prospects of success.  Again, depending on the number of documents that is likely to take somewhere between two and six hours and we will ask for the money for our time to be paid in advance of the work being carried out. 

If at the end of that process our advice is that your claim does not enjoy reasonable prospects of success then we will bill you for the time that we have carried out and that will be the end of the matter. 

However, if our advice is that your claim does enjoy reasonable prospects of success it is possible, depending on the value of your claim, that we will be able to enter into a Contingency Fee Agreement where we will take a percentage of your compensation.  That is likely to be somewhere between 25% and 33% of your compensation.  As well as taking between 25% and 33% of your compensation we will also charge you for any other disbursements, the most likely disbursement will be a Barrister’s fees.  We will advise you of those fees and seek your agreement before incurring those fees on your behalf. 

During the case we will advise you on your prospects of success and confirm who is carrying out the work on your behalf and who they are being supervised by.  We will inform you of information on key stages and the typical timescale.  An employment tribunal claim can take anywhere between one to two years depending on the time it takes for the employment tribunal to list your case for a final hearing.
