An Employment Law service made simple by a partner you can trust.

Taking care of Employment Law issues in any organisation, large or small, can be a challenge. 

No matter the topic, whether it’s grievance, misconduct or absence, if you get it wrong the damage can be irreparable. It could be a large fine from an Employment Tribunal. It could also mean reputational damage that has a cost you can’t quantify.


Look to our Employment Law specialists to support you.

Whether you find yourself without an in-house team or that team is stretched or struggling to deal with a complicated issue, Ellis Whittam has an outsourcing solution to match your needs.

Furthermore, unlike a more traditional approach of using solicitors, Ellis Whittam’s approach is fixed-fee. This means that no matter how many times you use Ellis Whittam, you don’t have to worry about clock watching or worrying about the price – it’s already paid for.

Employment Tribunal Fees Scrapped

The UK’s highest court, the Supreme Court, has unanimously ruled that fees in respect of Employment Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal proceedings are unlawful.


With any organisation, the employment law challenges can be vast and varied. Furthermore, each employment law issue has to be tackled in their own way, with reference to their own set of specific laws and regulations.

They could include:

  • Misconduct
  • Grievance
  • Settlement
  • Employment Tribunals
  • Zero hours contracts
  • Maternity
  • Paternity
  • Disciplinary

and much more.

This shows how important it is to have an employment law company to keep you on the right side of the law. 

Ellis Whittam’s employment law experts will keep you compliant, on the right side of the law to ensure that you have a great team, working for you. Ultimately, as well, it means that you can sleep easy knowing that there is no fear of Employment Tribunal costs and reputational damage.
