Our Job Is To Get You Compensation You Deserve

Do I have to go to Court and will I have to Speak?

Do I have to go to Court and will I have to Speak?

Employment cases are generally dealt with outside of the Court system, so It is very unlikely that you’ll ever have to go to a Court.  You may however have to attend a hearing at some point.  If the advice is that your employer has breached your rights in employment law, the next step is usually to file a complaint to the workplace relations commission. That really depends on what happens once the complaint is lodged and more importantly the attitude adopted by your employer.  If they accept that they’ve done something wrong or if they have an aversion themselves to fighting you, they may well agree to pay you compensation.  In those circumstances, no hearing will be necessary.  We find that about 60% of our cases never make it to a formal hearing. The other possibility is that they might deny any liability or wrongdoing and call upon you to prove your claim fully.  We find that this is happening more often than before and this is probably because employers are not terribly scared of the WRC. Even where a matter is initially fully fought, it is possible if not even likely that settlement discussions could happen.  This is the classic settlement “on the steps of the Court” as it were.  Many employers will string a complainant along initially, to see how serious they are.  Whose to say that the case doesn’t simply get dropped along the way, maybe the complainant loses heart.  But when they see that this is not going to happen they may well think twice and decide to try and resolve the dispute. It is impossible to say at the outset of an employment claim which route an employer (and an employee) will take.  It may be that the Claimant “wants their day in Court”!  We never foist or insist on a claimant settling their case, that’s entirely up to them.  All we can do is advise them of the merits of their case and of any offer made.  At the end of the day, many of our Clients will say that it is not about the money, they want their employer to understand that they cannot treat people in this way. To find out more about what is likely to be involved in your case and to get a free assessment case, please go here.  Remember though, the time limits for making a claim are very strict so don’t delay!  If you think you have a claim contact us today and we help you file your paperwork today. If you already have a date for your hearing and are nervous or stressed about representing yourself, why not call us and find out how we can support you to win the best outcome.

What do I need to Do Next?

Every month, we offer a select number of potential clients an opportunity to meet with one of our team for a free, no obligation, initial consultation to discuss the options available to you. At that meeting we will LISTEN and go through with you every aspect of your case and can give you clear advice about your options, what legal steps you can take to make this stop and we will also explain the whole process and the strengths and weaknesses of your case.  If you wish to proceed we will file your claim, draft written submissions and represent you at any Court hearing. Due to high demand and because we only work with a limited number of cases, we only offer 20 appointments a month.  We know that these appointments always fill up very quickly.  Contact us today to see how we can help you chose the outcome you want.  Please also remember that you only have two years from the date of your accident or injury to make your claim so don’t delay, the clock is ticking.  After that time limit passes, your claim is what’s called “statute barred” which means that you can’t make a claim at all after that.
