A labour case within the meaning of the DBA Regulations 2013 is a case that is or could be the subject of proceedings before an employment court. For a simple right to stress in the workplace, which does not include the right to discrimination on the basis of disability under the Equality Act 2010, see the practice note: compensation agreements (personal injury and clinical negligence). For contractual claims that do not fall within the jurisdiction of the Labour Court, see practice note: compensation agreements (general procedural or advocacy services). In addition, Philip Landau has written several times as a contributor to The Guardian as an expert in labour law. There is no requirement for your lawyer to offer a No Win No Fee option, in fact many do not. If you plan to take over your case as part of a No Win No Fee agreement, your lawyer will likely have the merits of your case (i.e.: The likelihood of success in an employment court) and the value of your claim. CFAs are a kind of non-winning and non-fee agreement that allows you to finance your business. Here, the lawyer or claims management company/adjuster agrees not to collect a fee in case your application fails. They are usually combined with ATE insurance (see legal protection insurance below).
If your application is successful, the lawyer calculates an increase (known as a pass fee) in addition to their basic fee. Until April 2013, a person who won his or her case would pay the success fee and his or her ordinary legal fees by the losing party. This has changed since April 1, 2013.
