    Hi,

    I've been representing myself through the employment tribunal for about a year. In a few weeks I will face the substantive hearing (I've already had 3 preliminary hearings) - but this time I have instructed a barrister as my emotions got in the way at the last pre-lim.

    In the meantime, the respondent's have been asking me to settle. Their sums have been of no consequence so far so it hasn't posed a very difficult choice to reject. They've twice asked me to counter-offer, this time they are asking for my minimum settlement. From the case as it is, it's strength and subject matter, I believe they would settle if I put my baseline sum forward (and not a sum to be trifled at) - but I'm worried I will regret settling. Whilst the sum is more than I would get in court, and would mean my family and I are more financially stable, I don't want to regret it further down the line. With just a few weeks to go I'm already very stressed and only see it getting worse but I feel as though a court resolution would help. I'm very torn and feel like my emotions are playing too much of a role. Has anyone got any advice? Settled and regretted it? Not settled and regretted it?

    Thanks
