Employment Tribunals: In England & Wales an Employment Tribunal is a Court which investigates disputes between employers and employees when they are unable to resolve their issue themselves and decides on outcome.
Employment tribunals are used to make a final decision on employment disputes. Almost all legal matters regarding employment law are heard in employment tribunals. This includes cases for unfair dismissal from employment, redundancy and employment discrimination.
Can I make a claim to an employment tribunal?
If you have a problem with your employer that you want to take to an employment tribunal, JMR solicitors can help you with the claim process in preparation for the employment tribunal.
Whether you can make a claim depends on what your issue is about and whether you meet certain conditions. In most cases, you have three months less 1 day to bring your claim to the employment tribunal.
Starting an Employment Claim
Time is a key factor in Employment Tribunal claims. This means if you have been dismissed from your job, you only have three months less 1 day from when you were dismissed to make a claim for unfair dismissal.
If you are still employed, you still only have 3 months less 1 day from the date the problem, issue or dispute happened. You should get legal advice as soon as possible or it could be too late.
For some employment claims, you have extended time, for instance, for an equal pay claim or redundancy pay claim you have up to 6 months less 1 day. That is why you should obtain advice about Employment Tribunal time limits at the outset so that you do not lose the right to make your claim.
JMR solicitors can give you all the information about your legal rights for your employment tribunal case.
