Employment Law Guidance Fees

Each matter is unique

Each claim is unique, and this is a guideline only. The exact cost will depend on the individual circumstances of the case and when we know the size and likely complexity of the claim and the amount of work involved, we shall then be able to inform you of the likely cost and also time involved. We shall prepare a budget for your case before we commence any proceedings in a tribunal on your behalf.

The fixed fee for 1 hour will be £125 + VAT. This is in line with the Law Society guidelines.

Each matter is dealt with by an individual fee earner so that you will know who to contact when any queries arise. Our approximate charges are set out below:



Settlement Agreements

Employee Tribunal Representation

Breach of Contract

Discrimination Claims

Restrictive Covenants

Harassment and Bullying



Settlement Agreements

Contract Reviews

Termination of Employment

Defending Claims
