Employment law advice - fixed price

Employees spend a significant amount of time at work, more sometimes than at home. Therefore, we recognise that any issues you face in relation to work are important and you may need to resolve these issues. We understand this, and have helped thousands of claimants (the person bringing the claim against the employer), employees and ex-employees facing difficulties in relation to their employment.

When facing a situation with your employment, it is natural that you will want to have it resolved in a timely way. Depending on the type of issue you are facing your regular income may be affected, which means that cost is an important factor. With this in mind, Stephensons have introduced a range of fixed price services. Many but not all employment law cases end up at an Employment Tribunal, if settlement is not reached. Stephensons has created a range of fixed priced services so you can use our services for all or part of the process right through to Tribunal. This is fairly unique in the market place as the majority of solicitors in this field still work to hourly rates. Our fixed priced services give you certainty over cost without compromising on quality.

We have over a 95% success rate for cases that reach tribunal where we are appointed to handle the case from start to finish.

1 hour meeting with employment law expert including written advice£250 plus VAT
