Customer Question


I've filed an ET1 against my employer because I believe I was discriminated against as a union rep.

My union has today told me that their solicitors will not take my case on as they feel I do not have more than a 50% chance of winning my case.

Does not having legal representation decrease the chances of getting an out of court settlement against my employer?

Is my employer more likely to want to go to court knowing I have no representation?
