Representation at an Employment Tribunal


If you feel you have been treated unfairly by an employer, the employment tribunal is the place where you can voice these concerns and make a claim for compensation. You may have faced discrimination or unfair dismissal or you may not have received money you were entitled to. Going through the tribunal process can be daunting, so our experienced expert lawyers are here to help you through the whole process from start to finish, to make sure you get the outcome you want.

How we’ve helped our clients

“I am disabled. Following significant problems securing the reasonable adjustments I needed at work, I had to file a disability discrimination Grievance against my employer. They carried out a flawed Grievance investigation and the conclusions reached were entirely unsatisfactory. I contacted Paris Smith. They were able to meet at short notice, were very supportive and sympathetic, and had a clear strategic focus. The team helped me write a Grievance Appeal letter, and advised on strategy, resolution negotiations, ACAS notification and a potential employment tribunal claim. Ultimately the Grievance Appeal was decided in my favour and I was able to continue in my job with appropriate reasonable adjustments for my disability. I was delighted with the outcome and would certainly recommend the Paris Smith Employment Team to anyone in a disability discrimination dispute with their employer.”
