Employment Claims without a Lawyer
Managing an employment claim, or representing yourself or your small business in an employment tribunal, can be daunting but, with the help of this new book, it is not impossible.
Employment Claims without a Lawyer leads you through the whole process - from an initial grievance to the hearing itself - in clear plain language so that you can get a complete view of what’s involved and how to best present your case.
The author, David Curwen, is a barrister with 32 years of experience representing claimants and businesses and has distilled his experience to provide the practical tips and background law you need to take on this task with greater confidence.
Importantly he also covers the steps both employee and employer need to consider when a problem first arises.
