Employees must present their complaints over their Employment rights to an independent judicial body known as an Employment Tribunal. However, as in any other branch of the law, litigation is a last resort and client are always advised not to ignore other less formal solutions. Our solicitors can be called to represent client before their cases go to the Employment tribunals, such preparing a letter before action normally seeking to avoid tribunal proceedings. However, if a claim is not settled, it will be necessary to being proceedings in the Employment Tribunal where the judgement will be binding.
Tribunals can generally give judgements on claims relating to:
• Unfair dismissal
• Constructive dismissal
• Breach of contract
• Unlawful Deduction of Wages
• Equal pay
• Discrimination in the workplace
• Disciplinary or grievance procedures
Time Limits on Employment Tribunal Claims
An application must be made within three months from the date the Employment ended or the incident took place. The Employment Tribunal will only accept claims outside of the time limit in exceptional circumstances.
If you are facing difficulties of resolving a dispute with either your employer or employee and you have attempted to resolve the issues through alternative means, our Employment Tribunal specialist solicitors will be happy to listen to the issues and advise you of the merits of your claim and the likelihood of success.
