How much will it cost?

If we predict a strong possibility of success we will offer No Win No Fee (also known as a CFA or Conditional Fee Agreement), this means you pay no upfront costs and we only get paid only if you win your case. Other funding options are available, such as a fixed fee agreement, meaning you pay no unexpected costs. All will be explained prior to entering into any agreement.

No Win No Fee^ in Employment Law Cases

A No Win No Fee Agreement with our employment law cases simply means that you will only pay for our services in the event that your claim is successful. If your case is won AND you are awarded compensation either by a Tribunal, through mediation or negotiation, we get paid an agreed percentage out of your damages, no more. If your case is lost then you pay us nothing, no matter how much work we have done.

If your case is not suitable for a No Win No Fee, other funding options are available.

How much can you take from my award?

By UK Law our fee is capped at 30% of your award. No matter how much you get awarded, or how much work we have done, or what costs have been involved our fee can be no more than 30% of this. For example if you are awarded £3,000 our fee can be no more than £900.

The percentage we charge will be agreed at the start of your case, and may vary from case to case.

Are any fees involved in a No Win No Fee agreement?

Sometimes we may ask for a fee to investigate before we can asses you case fully enough in order to go into a No Win No Fee agreement, or for payment of the application to the tribunal, or for payment of the Barrister / certain disbursements.

This is due to the nature of Employment Law cases as sometimes the percentage we would get would not cover costs, and it would be the only way for the case to proceed. You have the right to go no further with the case and will not be charged if this occurs.

This will be discussed with you by the solicitor handling your case and agreed before any fees are subject / before any work is carried out.

Alternative Funding Options^

If your case is not suitable for a No Win No Fee agreement we can look into alternative arrangements. This could include a small fee to investigate the case and if we become satisfied move onto a No Win No Fee, cover by Legal Expense Insurance, a pay as you go arrangement, or most likely a fixed fee. All funding options will be discussed with you by the solicitor handling your case.

Why is my case not suitable for a No Win No Fee

To enter into a No Win No Fee agreement we have to predict a good chance of success, and that your case has sufficient merit in the eyes of current UK law and practice.

What are disbursements?

Disbursements are simply costs we have to pay in order to take your case further, for example in the case of employment law this could be a barristers fee, medical fee or tribunal fee.

What is Legal Expense Insurance (LEI)?

Legal Expense Insurance or LEI is an Insurance which will cover all and any costs associated with legal proceedings. You may already have such insurance with your home or car insurance provider. If you have this cover we may be able to use it to fund your case.

What is a settlement or compromise agreement?

The compromise agreement will detail such items as redundancy payments, unpaid wages, bonuses, pay in lieu of notice and holiday pay. Compromise agreements may also be drawn up as part of a dispute resolution or to settle an Employment Tribunal claim. It is a legally binding document that both sides have to agree and adhere to and must be independently verified by a solicitor on behalf of the employee.

It is usual that the employer will pay for this in part or in full, if you have any questions including how to fund your case then contact us for a FREE consultation. RSR Law can assist in considering, advising on and finalising compromise agreements.

How long do I have to claim?

Please be aware that if your case needs to be taken to an employment tribunal this must occur within 3 months from end of employment or the problem occurring.
