  • Overview

    Nick Hobden, Partner and Head of Employment speaks to Kent Business about a new process called Collaborative Employment Law. The new initiative has been launched by Thomson Snell and Passmore and three other law firms, Brachers, Furley Page and Thackray Williams.

    Collaborative Employment Law takes place in a single day, away from the courtroom. Both sides are brought together in a private room to explain their differences, then work together with lawyers present to find a solution.

    Overall the process takes about a fortnight and leads to “significant savings” compared to court costs.

    Nick said, “We know how adversarial employment tribunal claims can get, there is not often an opportunity for both sides to step back and talk off-the-record to look at ways of trying to resolve things."

    “Once you’re in an employment tribunal there is a lot of disclosure of documents and a judge has to make a decision, with very little time to deliberate on the cases."

    “Our Collaborative Employment Law scheme will put the control for resolving conflict or issues back into the hands of our clients".
