All our claims are being brought on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis so if your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t need to pay us.
Step 4: Your solicitor starts your claim
After we have assessed your eligibility and agreed to our ‘no win no fee’ agreement, you will be signed up to the claim; it is that simple!
This is when we, Leigh Day, get to work. Our legal teams will notify ACAS of your intention to start proceedings and submit your claim to the Employment Tribunal. There will be no need for you to attend the tribunal unless you would be willing to talk about the job that you do.
An equal pay claim has a number of stages to work through so it can take a long time to reach a conclusion. However, you will be paid up to 6 years’ worth of back pay from the date we start your claim, and this will continue to increase until the claim is resolved or your employment ends.
We will, of course, keep you updated on your claim along the way.
Step 5: What happens if we win or lose?
If your claim brought by us is successful you will receive a sum of compensation. From that, you’ll need to pay the agreed fee of 25% (plus VAT) for the services we have provided.
If your claim brought by us is unsuccessful, you will not need to pay anything under the terms of our ‘no win no fee’ agreement.
This removes any financial risks and does not leave you out of pocket!
