Employment Tribunal Claims

Why go to the employment tribunal?

If you have been dismissed, treated unfairly or subjected to discrimination and have exhausted all avenues internally, you may wish to pursue an employment tribunal claim. If your claim succeeds your employer may be ordered to pay compensation to you or to consider re-engaging you. A tribunal can make a recommendation including but not limited to the employer undergoing training. It may have an effect on your employer’s reputation if they are found to have treated you unfairly. 

We have extensive experience representing clients in the employment tribunals in a broad range of claims. If you think you would like to bring a claim in the employment tribunal we can advise you on which claims may be applicable to your specific circumstances, the merits of those claims and what you might expect to receive in terms of compensation if your claims succeed. We can draft and issue your claim to ensure that it includes all of the correct information to give you the best possible start.

We can represent you throughout the proceedings by dealing with documents, drafting Witness Statements and complying with other directions of the tribunal as well as arranging for you to be represented at any hearings, if you wish.

If you have commenced an employment tribunal claim or you and are getting bogged down with the tribunal process, we can help.

Are Employment Tribunal decisions published?
