The Employment Tribunal is a specialist tribunal that hears claims from employees who believe their employer, or a potential employer has treated them unlawfully.
The Employment Tribunal rules on a range of issues from discrimination to unfair dismissal. When making a claim to the Employment Tribunal, it is important to have specialist employment solicitors by your side to give you the best chance of a successful outcome. We have assisted many people through the employment dispute process and pride ourselves on achieving the best possible outcome for your individual situation.
The Employment Tribunal should be the last step in your efforts to resolving a dispute with your employer. We can assist you in each step before this including raising a formal grievance, guiding you through the ACAS early conciliation process, and finally, taking your claim to the Employment Tribunal.
To make a claim, there are usually certain conditions that will need to be met. For example, you will need to make the claim within the required time limit which is usually three months minus one day from when the incident occurred.
We understand that making a claim can be very stressful. Our supportive solicitors will be on hand to answer any questions you may have and ensure you have the best possible chance of securing a positive outcome.
If a claim is unsuccessful at the employment tribunal, the decision can be challenged, through the tribunal appeal mechanism, using the systems established by the tribunal. Time limits are imposed which require a relatively quick response and the rules can be complicated.
We offer specialist advice and assistance to advance an appeal of the decision of an Employment Tribunal. We can advise on whether your appeal is likely to succeed and support you if you decide to challenge the decision.
Our aim is to lessen the stress caused when bringing an appeal by working with you to reach your preferred outcome, whether by negotiation, mediation or through the tribunal process. We provide clear and timely advice and consult with you at every step to explain the process and the likely outcome.
