Court Litigation

As an employer, you may occasionally be faced with court litigation, which is a claim brought in the civil courts. This can be a single claim, or alongside a claim brought in the Employment Tribunal. 

An employee may view action outside of the Employment Tribunal System advantageous in terms of amounts recoverable and limitation periods. There may even be occasions when claims are issued simultaneously in the employment tribunal and High Court. This would not be uncommon where there is more than one claim. 

It may also be necessary for a business to protect its own interests by taking action against an employee in the civil courts. This sort of claim may be most common where the employment contract contains clauses to prohibit the employee from undertaking competitive activities during their employment and for a certain period after it ends. Here employers may seek injunctions to stop employees from engaging in the prohibited activity as well as claiming for damages.

Court litigation can lead to severe financial impact, along with damage to your business reputation. Giving the potential losses involved in civil claims, expert legal representation is crucial.
