Our highly experienced legal team at SO Support offer expert guidance and tips to help you ensure that you fully understand and can navigate your way through defending or taking legal action through employment tribunals. We fully understand the emotions that are present when employee/employer relationships have reached a point that cannot be amicably resolved without the intervention of the judicial system and we help you understand the different ways in which you can prepare to defend against a claim or to put together the correct documents and evidence required to make a claim through the Court and Tribunal Service.
We know that working ‘with’ local employers and employees, not just ‘for’ them, keeps our support affordable and ensures the best outcome for individuals and companies within our community.
At SO Support we help you to de-emotionalise the situation in order that you may structure your legal argument without the need for expensive solicitors or barristers that can sometimes be disproportionate with their fee structure. We will always attempt to find an amicable and agreeable solution to any problem by approaching the other party in a ‘without prejudice’ manner to ascertain as to whether the matter could be prevented from proceeding to court saving both parties and the judicial system unnecessary costs and time. If the matter has progressed beyond this point then we can work with you in court supporting you with document control, assisting with understanding some of the more complex legal terms and empowering you to defend against any action taken against you.
Should the matter be one of complexity involving discrimination or criminal accusation then we can assist you to understand the options that are available to you by way of referral to our trusted regulated partners where we have pre-arranged preferential rates. Before doing so, we can help you to understand and simplify the story by working with you to create a working file to hand over to your regulated representative saving time and money in the process.
