Why might you need no-win, no-fee employment lawyers?


Legal aid is not available in employment law cases and as a result many cases are funded by no-win, no-fee arrangements which allow employees to bring cases without the need for initial financial outlay. Employment law is one of the few areas of law where contingency fees are allowed - but be aware that it's not possible in every employment case. Contingency fees allow no-win, no-fee employment lawyers to take a percentage of the damages awarded in the case at its culmination. Conditional fee arrangements differ in that they allow solicitors to charge a percentage uplift on their usual fees if the claim is won.

No-win, no-fee employment lawyers can use either contingency fee agreements or conditional fee agreements to fund your claim. Contingency fee agreements have been criticised for their lack of regulation and the resulting trend for claimants to lose large portions of their damages without realising that this would happen. The main reason for the criticism is that the agreements are unclear and clients are not aware of what the claim could cost them at the outset.

No-win, no-fee employment lawyers must give you the best information on costs at the beginning of your case and update you on costs throughout your case. If you feel your firm of no-win, no-fee employment lawyers has not given you the best possible information on costs, then you should utilise the firm’s complaints procedure and if that fails, make a complaint to the Solicitors Regulation Authority or the Law Society.
