If you’ve been dismissed from your job, discriminated against or otherwise treated unfairly during your employment, you may wish to make a claim against your former employer in the Employment Tribunal.
An Employment Tribunal is the legal forum where most types of employment disputes are heard. A Judge, either on their own or sitting with others as a panel of three, will read all of the relevant, documentary evidence and hear the evidence from every relevant witness before making a decision on your case.
There are strict time limits within which you must start your claim and a requirement to go through ACAS Early Conciliation before doing so. It’s therefore important to seek advice at the earliest possible stage.
