A step-by-step guide through the process of translating issues into the language of legal claims, flagging important legal tests you need to consider.

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.

Why you should use a Without Prejudice letter

A Without Prejudice letter can be used to start settlement negotiations with your employer anytime, before or after you’ve made a claim to the Employment Tribunal.

By using ‘Without Prejudice’ in a letter, you can ensure your conversations stay “off-the-record” and can’t be used in any court proceedings.

Examples of Without Prejudice Letters

A Without Prejudice Letter can be a strong tool to ensure that you have a chance to settle with your employer without losing the option of continuing with an Employment Tribunal if negotiations fall through. There are a few examples of how Without Prejudice Letters can be used:


Nicky has raised a grievance with their employer but the outcome has been unsuccessful.

Nicky sends their employer a Without Prejudice Letter to propose that they leave the company with some financial compensation, as an alternative to appealing the grievance outcome.


Zola has been dismissed without any procedure.

She has appealed her dismissal and is waiting for a response from her employer.

She is thinking about making a Tribunal claim but wants to try and see if she can settle her claim first.

She sends her employer a Without Prejudice Letter to start the negotiations.


How to use a Without Prejudice Letter

If you’re thinking of settling with your employer out of court, here’s how to use a Without Prejudice Letter:

  1. create the template in Valla
  2. send the Without Prejudice Letter to your employer or ex-employer
  3. set a deadline on the offer if you want to
  4. wait for your employer or ex-employer to come back to you. In the meantime, make sure you don’t run out of time to start the Tribunal process in case the settlement negotiations don’t work.

Save time, reduce stress and ensure your claim has the best chance of success

What our customers say about us

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.


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 has been a lifesaver for me

They are so helpful and on top of that, everyone has been so nice. I really felt that they emphasised with what I was going through. I will be using them from now until my tribunal issue is settled.


Why use Valla?

A law firm can cost anywhere from an initial consultation fee of £200 to £35,000+ plus VAT for Tribunal representation.

Valla offers users low-cost alternatives to pricey law firms. We can help guide you through the process and generate legal documents for your use.

Lawyers can be expensive. But access to justice doesn’t have to be.
