No win no fee Employment Solicitors
TribunalClaim.com has a dedicated team of specialist no win no fee employment solicitors. We can provide representation to employees throughout the UK. Furthermore, we have employment lawyers who have vast experience in giving expert employment law advice and representing employee rights.
How much will my claim cost?
In most cases, we are able to offer to represent our clients on a no win no fee basis.
This means we are able to give excellent advice, via one of our specialist employment solicitors, on whether you have a potential chance of winning your claim, without any cost to you.
If we are able to assist you, we will then provide you with one of our no win no fee employment solicitors which means you will only pay us in the event that we win your case.
How does it work?
Our fees are 35% inclusive of VAT of any money that we are able to recover for you as compensation.
For example, if we managed to recover £10,000 in compensation, the split would be £6,500 to you and £3,500 as our fee.
65/35 split is considered the industry standard for no win no fee employment claims.
This way of working means that there is no risk to you. You do not have to pay money up front and our fees will be recovered as part of your compensation.
You can find out more about our no win no fee policy here.
If you require assistance sooner please see below for our telephone consultation service.
In cases which are more complicated, which wouldn’t necessarily be eligible for no win no fee representation, we can offer a range of other options, including:
- Legal Expense Insurance (LEI), if you have this as part of an insurance policy;
- Fixed Fee;
- Conditional Fee.
We also offer a range of paid case assessment telephone consultations. You are able to speak with an expert employment solicitor at very short notice.
These are priced very competitively and are great value for money.
See our reviews to see what people have said about us.
This type of consulation is suitable for:
- clients who require immediate advice from a solicitor (if appointments are available);
- clients who aren’t sure whether they want to proceed with a claim;
- clients who have a more complex case which needs assessment prior to moving forward;
- clients who require assistance with writing letters, for example grievance or appeal letters.

Our most frequently asked questions on no win no fee
What is no win no fee?
No win no fee is exactly as it sounds. If we do not win your case against your employer, our solicitors will not take any fees and you will not be subject to any costs.
Who pays the costs in no win no fee cases?
Our costs are covered by the compensation that we recover from your employer.
Who pays the employers costs?
Under employment law, your employer will have to cover their own costs. In very rare circumstances an employee may be forced to pay their costs, but this is only if the tribunal decides that the claim is vexatious or had no merit. We never let it get to this stage as we will always do a thorough case assessment before taking the claim on.
What are the benefits of no win no fee?
The main benefit is that you, the employee, is able to pursue their claim without the worry of being subjected to costs that may out weigh the amount of compensation that you can recover from your employer. By entering a no win no fee agreement with our employment solicitors, you are able to have peace of mind and we are able to focus on getting the best result for you without any risk factors.
How do I know if I am eligible for no win no fee?
There are certain criteria which make it much easier for us to run your case on a no win no fee basis. These are as follows:
– You need to have at least two years service (unless you are claiming discrimination, whistleblowing or any other claim considered to be an automatic unfair dismissal).
– If you are making an unlawful deduction of wages claim, you would need to be claiming more than £3000. The reason being, anything lower than this figure would not cover the costs of us representing you.
– Whistleblowing and discrimination claims are often more complex, but in some cases we are able still offer no win no fee, if we consider them to be strong.
See our how it works page for more details
How do you assess whether my claim is eligible?
In order to make an assessment, one of our legal representatives will speak with you over the telephone, in most cases. If they think you have possible case for no win no fee, they will then pass you to one of our Employment Solicitors, who will further assess you claim and if they think you have a strong enough case, they will offer to represent you.
What if I am not eligible for no win no fee?
If you are not eligible, we have other affordable options that we can pursue. Sometimes we will offer to do a in depth case review, following an initial telephone consultation with a solicitor, to see if we are able to assist. We usually charge £500 +VAT for a full case review.
In other cases, we make fixed fee and conditional fee arrangements. Or if you have legal expense insurance, we may be able to cover our fees with this.
What happens if I have legal cover?
If you have legal expense insurance (usually under a home or car insurance policy), you would simple call them and let them know that you would like to pursue an employment claim and that you have found representation. We would then get in touch with them and start pursuing you claim. They would then pay our fees at the end of the case and you would get your full compensation.
*Are there any other costs with no win no fee agreements?
The only other cost that you may be asked to pay is our disbursements. This means that if we have to travel to tribunal or stay over night in a accomodation, then you would be liable to these costs. We cap this at £200 +VAT, so you will never pay more than this. In most cases these costs are not required, as we usually settle the case before if goes to court.
Am I able to withdraw from the agreement at any point?
Once you have signed our no win no fee agreement, you are able to withdraw at any point during the case. However, in these circumstances you would be liable to pay our costs (at our hourly rate) up until the point that you pulled out.
We put this clause in to reduce the risk to us. Without this, it could mean that a claimant could get a solicitor to run their case right up to the point of winning and then pull out, meaning that they would receive all the compensation and the solicitor would get nothing, having already done all the work for the claimant.
Are there any court fees?
No. There are no court fees. These were deemed unlawful and abolished in 2017.
Will I be liable for fees if I lose my case?
If you lose your case under a no win no fee agreement, you will not be liable to pay any fees except, potentially, the disbursments, as mentioned above. However this will never be more than £200 + VAT.
What happens if I win my case?
If you win your case, you will receive 65% of any compensation that we have been able to recover for you. Use our unfair dismissal calculator to find out what compensation you might be eligible for in an unfair dismissal claim.
Are you able to negotiate larger settlements?
If you have been offered a settlement agreement, ordinarily, our fees are paid by the employer. However if you would like us to negotiate a higher settlement figure for you, we can do this on a percentage basis. Meaning that anything we negotiate over and above what is already being offered, we would take 20% of this amount to cover our negotiation fees.
For example, if you had been offered £10,000 as your settlement and we managed to negotiate and additional £5000, we would take 20% of £5000.
Our fee would therefore be £1000.
Your would recieve £14,000.

– Carrie-Anne Moore
Because my claim was so small in value I was conscious of speaking with a high street solicitor and spending at least 180 an hour to get the advice I needed, I contacted Tribunal claim via email. I was able to send full details of my issue with a previous employer and receive a free email back with helpful standalone advice and a quick talk through on a ten minute call and I now have all the information I needed and a plan of action all for 25 pounds. I cannot recommend enough

Frequently Asked Questions
How long do I have to submit a claim?
You need to start the claim process, three months less one day from the date of your dismissal, last unlawful deduction of wages or last act of discrimination. Time limits are very strict. It is extremely rare to be able to submit a claim out of time. Our employment solicitors are able to advise on time limits and will be able to assist with getting your claim started.
Can I submit a claim regardless of my length of service?
Should I go through ACAS?
Yes. The ACAS conciliation service will conciliate with your employer prior to going to tribunal. This is now a legal requirement. However, we advise that you should always seek legal advice from a qualified solicitor, at your earliest convenience. Our employment law experts will be able to give you all the advice that you need and they will also be able to assist with the ACAS process.

How long will my claim take to complete?
