New claim

Heading: What is this claim for?

Remember, you can make more than one claim for the same events. In fact, it’s very common in tribunal cases to bring multiple related claims. Once you finish this claim just add another.

What you can expect

You’ll be assigned a Legal Coach from the Valla team who will do an expert legal review of your submitted documents. After your review you will have a 1 hour call with the coach to discuss the following:

  • how likely your potential case is to succeed and what you could be awarded, based on the claims identified and the evidence that supports them
  • suggestions for which claims to take forward to maximise your chances of success in the tribunal
  • a discussion of settlement and what you might target as a settlement amount
  • a strategy to increase the likelihood that your claims succeed

After your call, you can use this information to start filling out your ET1 and get your Tribunal claim started.

How it works

You’ll need to upload documents, such as a grievance letter, disciplinary letter, timeline of events, etc. These documents will serve as the foundation for your merits assessment. The more clarity and detail you provide, the more valuable and insightful your assessment will be.

What our customers say about us

Excellent low-cost employment tribunal guidance

I have just won my employment tribunal case for unfair dismissal, and I'm not sure if I would have been able to do it without Valla! Katie and Danae were absolutely brilliant in helping me prepare for the tribunal, prepare certain documents, and help me to feel confident in my case! I would highly recommend Valla to anyone who is representing themselves in an employment tribunal case! 10/10 for me!


Valla are excellent

I genuinely believe they helped guide me to the best possible outcome for my specific circumstances. They are a choir of angels; I wouldn't have been able to consider going through the processes involved with my experience without their support.


If I didn’t get help from Valla, I couldn’t go forward with the case.

The confidence they gave me is beyond description.
