Our Commitments & Fees Policy
There is no charge for an Employee if you are making a claim at a Fair Employment Tribunal in Northern Ireland and the UK. So unless you are paying a representative, like a solicitor there is no cost in making a claim.
We have a NO WIN NO FEE POLICY if appropriate. This means, you will not be charged for any of our services until you are happy and agree with the bespoke service we will provide for you. Our
competitors rates in NI and the UK can range from £110-£220 per hour. Our rate is approximately a third of the lowest consultation rate we could find locally. As promised, our initial
consultation is absolutely FREE OF CHARGE.
The Industrial Tribunals and Fair Employment Tribunal Court give employees "their day in court" if they have been treated unlawfully or discriminated against, harassed, unfairly dismissed or have suffered any other detriment by their employer. We will have no hesitation applying to the Court if employers continue to flout the law and will move this process along accordingly.
We will always be honest with our clients and will advise them not to proceed with a case if we feel we have no or very little chance of a positive outcome, and/or we believe that their grievance or concerns [on the information they have given us] may not be serious enough to warrant an Employment Tribunal Hearing.
Should your case have a positive outcome, we ask 20% of any financial settlement compared to our average competitors 30-35% [from an employer or a Tribunal Hearing]. This settlement fee will be reduced to 15% for any Personal or Tribunal award over £16,000 to the claimant we are representing if they are receiving NI or UK minimum wage. [This bespoke rate only applies to employees in Northern Ireland or the UK receiving minimum wage].
In exceptional circumstances, and/or where we believe the lowest paid employees in our society are unable to pay for our services due to an unacceptable detriment caused to that person by an employer, we will offer our services
Fees for clients other than employees can be negotiated on request, any fee will still be less than half of the starting rates of most of our competitors. However, given the current economic climate we can reduce this rate for smaller
We respect and fully endorse the Information Commissioner's
Office and your rights Under the Data Protection Act 2018.
