We have a team of experienced Employment Tribunal Advocates who can represent you in all forms of Employment Tribunal applications.
- Employment Tribunals hear cases involving employment disputes such as Unfair Dismissal, Redundancy or Discrimination
- They are less formal than some other courts, but you still give evidence on oath
Cases are usually heard by a legally qualified chair and two lay members.
Will an Employment Tribunal agree your claim?
Before you go to an Employment Tribunal you should get specialist advice from one of our team of Employment Law Solicitors, particularly about your chance of success.
Most Employment Tribunal applications must be made within three months of the incident, but this can vary. Tribunals will only extend the time limit in exceptional circumstances.
ACAS will offer free and impartial conciliation to you and your employer - normally for a maximum period of seven weeks in cases such as wages claims, up to 13 weeks for Unfair Dismissal, and open-ended for Discrimination claims.
- The tribunal can order your employer to pay compensation, which is unlimited for discrimination or dismissal on health and safety grounds
- You can ask the Tribunal to review its decision, but only on limited grounds
- It’s also possible to appeal to the Employment Appeal Tribunal, which only looks at points of law
