Our Job Is To Get You Compensation You Deserve

How Long do I have and How Long will it take?

How long do I have to make a claim?

In most cases, you have 6 months from the date of dismissal to make a claim.  This can be extended to 12 months but only in exceptional circumstances.  It is important to get it clear in your mind this is a limit and not a target and that you should aim to start the investigative process as quickly as possible

How long will my claim take?

How long is a piece of string?!  Currently there are very significant delays what with a combination of Covid and the impact of a recent Supreme Court decision called Zalewski. Usually however, a case in the WRC should take six to nine months to be heard.  Once a case is heard, the Adjudicating Officer will not issue a decision there and then but will “reserve” the decision, which means that they will go off and review all of the evidence and the submissions and write up a detailed decision which will be issued to the parties by post.  The AOs say that this will take just eight to ten weeks but in practice it can take far longer then that.  When the decision is received, either party can appeal it to the Labour Court and if they choose to do so they must lodge their appeal within 42 days of the date of the decision.  It is important to note that that is from the date of the decision and not from the date you received the decision and also that the time limit expires at midnight on the 41st day not on the 42nd day because you must appeal “within” 42 days.

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.
