  • Employment Tribunal

    Hi Need Hellp Legal Beagles
    I am Taking my ex Employer to an Employment Tribunal after I was dismissed
    My advocate, say unfortunately he is of the opinion that you have less than 10% chance of winning at a tribunal. what should I do is it worth going on with it or should I withdraw?. All I want is be able to have something for the many year I worked for them and a Job reference that I can trust

    Who is your advocate? Not their name but their status: are they an employment lawyer, a barrister, a union representative, or what is their qualification to represent you at tribunal?
    All opinions expressed are based on my personal experience. I am not a lawyer and do not hold any legal qualifications.

      Does this also relate to the post made on a completely thread, of which I have copied and pasted below:

      Hi I need help with this below as all I want is to be able to get some compensation to be able to trust job reference from ex employer as I had worked for them for 22 year before I was dismissed
      The claimant shall set out in writing what remedy the
      Tribunal is being asked to award. The claimant shall
      send a copy to the respondent. The claimant shall
      include any evidence and documentation supporting
      what is claimed and how it is calculated. The claimant
      shall also include information about what steps the
      claimant has taken to reduce any loss (including any
      earnings or benefits received from new employment).

      I have also deleted that thread and ask that you continue on this thread only please.
      If you would like a one-to-one expert consultation with me on your employment issue than I can be contacted by emailing admin@legalbeaglesgroup.com

            Any remedy award given by an Employment Tribunal will only happen if you win your claim. I cannot comment on the reputation of someone who is an "HR Consultant MA LLM FCIPD for Premier Advocates" (who do not even have a website that I can find) in their ability/knowledge to be able to say that you have "less than 10% chance of winning at a tribunal." They are not an employment law solicitor would be my only comment but if they are a experienced HR consultant they may have the knowledge to give such an opinion.

            In any event a reference cannot be something that a Tribunal can award as part of a remedy if you should win, it would be a financial one and in some rare circumstances reinstatement.

                I had worked for them for 22 year before I was dismissed for what the are calling gross misconduct but when I have spoken to recruitment agents they have said what is wrong with that.
                I don't know as the
                claimant how to set out in writing what remedy the Tribunal is being asked to award. and what to ask for .

                The claimant shall send a copy to the respondent. The claimant shall
                include any evidence and documentation supporting
                what is claimed and how it is calculated. The claimant
                shall also include information about what steps the

                    We cannot advise on whether or not you should drop your claim, that decision is entirely down to you.

                    Is the hearing in Jan what is termed a preliminary hearing or is it the final hearing?

                        my union representative was useless and my Union said you have no chance of winning so legal will not help you

                          So both your union and an indeoendent HR consultant/advocate have told you you have next to no chance of winning?

                          In deciding whether you want to go ahead and continue with your claim you need to take into account that you are almost certainly going to lose your case.

                          Whether you want to try and see if you win is up to you and as advised upthread that we cannot advise on whether or not you should drop your claim.
                          All opinions expressed are based on my personal experience. I am not a lawyer and do not hold any legal qualifications.

                              You have been advised by 2 people that you are unlikely to win your claim and you have not provided any information on what you are claiming for.

                              It does not matter how long you were employed at the company it is about how strong your claim is. You need to factor the following:

                              1. The result of the preliminary hearing may be you do not have a claim and it will be dismissed at that point.
                              2. Depending on your claim it may be well into 2024 before you get a final hearing in place.
                              3. The process is not easy and can be very stressful.
                              4. A tribunal may not find in your favour and you will get nothing.
