Since 1996, Hudson Contract has formally responded to over 100 employment tribunal claims made against us. The overwhelming majority are dropped long before they reach a hearing when claimants – or their solicitors – realise their allegations are unfounded. And on the occasions when a claim has gone the distance, we have been on the winning side, every time.
In 2013, fees were introduced to bring a tribunal case, resulting in a dramatic fall in the number of claims being brought. But in 2017, the Supreme Court scrapped fees, ruling they were ‘inconsistent with access to justice’ and reopening the floodgates.
No company can prevent someone taking you to tribunal. But at Hudson Contract, our clients are protected from all the financial consequences. We can’t stop these claims being raised (self-employed operatives can – and now with no fees to pay upfront – take contractors to tribunal), but we take away the stress of dealing with them so far as our clients are concerned. Under our guarantee, we pay the full legal costs of every claim that affects our clients.
Third-party providers often stall, and when a case continues towards a tribunal hearing, their clients discover they are on their own. Cases typically cost at least £6,000. We know of one where the ‘solution provider’ washed their hands of a claim, even though their website clearly stated that they provided full cover for employment and tax laws. Hudson Contract's guarantee is for real. We never leave our clients in the lurch.

We are a plumbing contractor and our company has been using Hudson Contract Services since 2007 and since that time it feels like a large weight has lifted from our shoulders, that being the full weight of the inland revenue. We could not recommend them highly enough, and any company in the contracting business would be foolish not to use you.Plumbing Contractor - Kent
