Pregnancy & Racial discrimination - what should I ask for? in Employment and minimum wage problems Posted November 4, 2012 OK, understood. But any tips other than that? It actually depends on what stage your case is at. Think of it like this, the more you make them work and create paperwork (and lawyer fees) they will be seeing more and more cost. I would suggest that you say no to all offers until the case is well progressed. The most costs are when the case is just about to go to court / ET so when you force them to get to that stage they will make 'an economic' decision on whether it is cheaper to settle or cheaper to fight the case. It sounds like they are on to a hiding to nothing if they are making offers. The longer you hold out the bigger the settlement... maybe!!
