Frequently asked questions

What is employment law?

Employment law regulates the relationship between employers and their employees. It’s the job of employment law specialists to ensure the legal rights of their clients are upheld – whether claimant or respondent, employee or employer. Case types can be anything from age discrimination and bullying to maternity rights and redundancy.

How can software help with employment law processes?

Legal software created for employment law practices contains time-saving, efficiency-enhancing, profitability boosting functionality that guides solicitors, paralegals, cashiers, law firm managers, COLPs and COFAs through the tasks associated with employment law – beginning with conflict and identity checking, proceeding with case workflow guidance and concluding with submission of final invoice. The software features empower practitioners to minimise mistakes and maximise productivity.

Can Quill’s software assist with fixed fee models?

Yes. For individuals claiming unfair treatment, contract breach and wrongful dismissal, costs are a worry, especially for those who’ve lost their employment. The same can be said of SME-sized employers daunted by potentially high legal costs. With Quill, fixed fee arrangements can be catered for to avoid concerns about a large legal bill at the end of a case.

The Quill system helps correctly estimate fixed fees to ensure your practice stays profitable. You can also use our software tools to calculate standard costs for typical employment law matters, action case tasks efficiently and speedily with limited variability, and track estimated costs against incurred costs to inform fixed fee-setting decisions in the future.

Can Quill software support legal aid?

Legal aid doesn’t apply to employment cases unless it’s a discrimination matter upon means testing verification. In these instances, our software handles legal aid for employment law. If your client needs to use public funds to help to pay for discrimination-type disputes, our software can manage the additional administration with functionality to get the most work done in the least time thereby keeping costs low, log disbursements and expenses to recover all chargeable monies, automatically calculate complex fees according to the latest legal aid rates for spotless accounting, and upload of data from Quill right to the Legal Aid Agency’s online portal for paperless working.

What systems does Quill integrate with and why?

The Quill system itself comes with the ability to instantly switch on Microsoft Office integration thanks to our DocsHub document management feature. Quill also integrates with specialist third-party systems – including Veriphy (for AML and credit checking), FormEvo (for legal forms and e-submissions), Legl (for online payments from privately funded clients) and Bundledocs (for tribunal, court and counsel document bundling).

Which employment forms are covered in the Quill Forms catalogue?

Quill integrates fully with the FormEvo library of legal forms and e-submissions. Within the employment section of our catalogue, you’ll find the ET1 to ET3 employment tribunal claim and response forms, and T434 to T445 expenses payable, declaration, appeal and answer forms. There’s also a separate civil legal aid section comprising the CF1A counsel claim form, CIV ADMIN1 to CIV ADMIN2 statutory charge and details change forms, CIV APP1 to CIV APP11 application and withdrawal forms, CIV CLAIM1 to CIV CLAIM5 claim forms, checklists and reports, CIV MEANS1 to CIV MEANS5 financial assessment forms, CW3 to CW4 application for extension and withdrawal of legal representation forms, EC CLAIM1s claim forms , L17 to L31 earnings forms, and NOTICE1 to NOTICE3 civil legal aid certificate, extension, amendment and withdrawal forms.

Read case study

“At Bhayani Law, we operate a non-traditional payment model of fixed monthly retainer payments for our ‘Watertight’ package – combined employment law advice, and outsourced HR and health and safety services. It’s difficult to cater for these unique requirements whilst still complying with the intricacies of legal accounts rules. Quill has gone above and beyond to introduce a series of new processes and procedures for the smooth running and compliant management of our accounting function.”
