If you have just been served with an employment tribunal claim, don’t panic. There are a few things you need to do in order to prepare for your case.

First, you need to seek legal advice from an Employment Solicitor. Make sure you need to read through the claim carefully and make sure that you understand it. If there are any parts that you are unsure of, make sure to ask your solicitor for clarification.

Next, you need to start gathering evidence that will support your defense. This may include documents such as performance reviews, emails, or text messages. If you have any witnesses who can attest to your character or the events in question, make sure to get their contact information as well.

Finally, start preparing your arguments. Work with your solicitor to come up with a strong defense that will give you the best chance of winning your case.

If you follow these steps, you will be in a good position to defend yourself against an employment tribunal claim.
