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. We can’t stop these claims being raised but we can protect you from the financial consequences. Self-employed operatives can take contractors to tribunal for almost any reason. And now with no upfront fees to pay, you may see an increase in claims.
As part of our employment tribunal service, we take on all the work and stress for you. If you are taken to court, we build your case, pay all the employment tribunal costs and, if you lose, we pay the awarded sum too. So you don’t have to worry about a claim devastating your business.
We’ve dealt with over 100 employment tribunal cases. And the majority of cases are dropped long before they reach court. On the rare occasion when a tribunal claim does go the distance, we’ve been on the winning side every single time
Third-party providers can be unreliable. They often stall and when a case continues towards a tribunal hearing, their clients can discover they are on their own. And when employment tribunals often cost at least £6,000, this is an expensive position to be left in.
We know of one situation where the ‘solution provider’ washed their hands completely of a claim. This is despite their website starting they provide full cover for employment and tax laws.
We promise to help you every step of the way during an employment tribunal. Our guarantee means that we never leave you in the lurch to struggle with employment tribunal costs and stress. We fight your corner throughout the entire process and make sure that you and your business won’t suffer as a result.

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
