The Employment Tribunal is a specialist tribunal designed to hear claims from people who feel their employer or potential employer has treated them unlawfully.

The Tribunal can rule on a wide range of issues, including discrimination, unfair dismissal and non-payment of wages. If you have an employment dispute of any kind, you may consider taking it to an Employment Tribunal.

When taking a claim to the Employment Tribunal, it’s important to have expert solicitors by your side. We’ve helped many people through the employment dispute process, from early attempts to find an informal solution right the way through to the Tribunal.

What Services Do We Offer?

Going to the Employment Tribunal should be the final step in your attempts to resolve your dispute with your employer. We can help you with every stage, including:

  • Advising you on your internal grievance procedure
  • Guiding you through the ACAS early conciliation process
  • Taking your claim to the Employment Tribunal.

We can also help with appeals. If you’ve already taken your claim to the Employment Tribunal and the decision went against you, it’s possible to appeal on a point of law. We can advise you on whether an appeal is likely to succeed and support you if you decide to challenge the decision.

If you’re taking your current employer to an Employment Tribunal, it’s hard to predict how this will affect your ongoing relationship with them. If your position becomes untenable, we can help you negotiate a settlement agreement and severance package with your employer. We have years of experience of this, so you can trust that we have the expertise needed to protect your best interests.
