Are you a Union?

No – nor are we political or connected with a political party. We would not be involved in strike action, but are instead completely focused on ensuring that we provide our members with the best possible advice and support. We are a claims management company, regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. Our Firm Reference Number is 834469. We can support you with all aspects of your employment matter, including Employment Tribunal representation.  

How is your membership scheme different from a union?
As we are not a union, we are not concerned with arranging strike action or participating in collective bargaining, nor are we political. Unlike a workplace union rep who works for your company, our advisors are completely impartial. We are passionate about providing support which is tailored to the needs of our members.
As a member, is there a limit to the number of occasions I can access support?
Absolutely not. We want our members to contact us whenever they have a concern so that we can support them fully.
I am going to a different job can I stay on the membership scheme?
Of course! We are proud to say that many of our members have stayed with us for years and are reassured that support is on hand whenever they need it, wherever they are employed.
I have an employment issue that began when I was not a member. Can you help me?
Unfortunately not, pre-existing issues are not covered as part of our membership scheme. Our memberships are designed to provide future peace of mind, rather like how we take out insurance to protect us from possible risks in the future. However, we do offer our services on an hourly rate or, in some cases, on a no win no fee arrangement. We would be delighted to hear from you and to discuss your situation.
If I am a member and need to bring an employment tribunal claim, can you help?
As a member, we should already be aware of the circumstances leading up to this possibility, and would continue to support you throughout the process. If we believe that it would be appropriate to lodge an employment tribunal claim, we would do so. There would be no charge to you as it is included within your membership.

We work exclusively in the areas of HR and employment law. Any litigation support, such as drafting documentation in relation to a claim, is handled in house. Meaning that those handling your case are fully aware of all that has happened and any decisions relating to Tribunal claims can be made quickly so that you are not left in limbo.

Will you assist me with the paperwork or will I have to do it myself?
As a member, we will draft all the paperwork on your behalf, based on the information you provide to us. We will handle your case from start to finish and will liaise with other parties for you when this becomes necessary.
