Employment Tribunals Explained
Employment tribunals are used for employment law disputes that cannot be resolved in any other way.
You can make a claim to an employment tribunal if you believe that your employer, or in some cases a potential employer, has treated you unlawfully.
A tribunal is not as formal as a regular court hearing. It will usually be held in an office building and contain a panel of three people, including a legally qualified employment judge. However, the decisions of the tribunal are legally binding.
The kinds of cases that can be heard by employment tribunals include:
Possible outcomes from an employment tribunal include compensation and even reinstatement. To give yourself the best possible chance of securing the outcome that you want, seeking legal advice at an early stage and arranging for representation from a team of expert solicitors is recommended.
In order to be able to make a claim to an employment tribunal, certain conditions have to be met. For instance, you will have to make the claim within the required time limit; you will usually have three months less one day from when the incident occurred in which to make a claim to the tribunal.
The process of making a claim, however, can be stressful. This is why it is always recommended that you seek the assistance of an experienced legal team to make sure you are giving yourself the best possible chance of securing a favourable outcome.
