Employment tribunals deal with legal disputes in the workplace. They are like informal courts with three members, including a legally qualified chairman or judge. The other two members are people who have experience dealing with employment disputes from the point of view of employers or employees.
Any employee wishing to make a tribunal claim with the employment tribunal must do so within three months of the date of termination of employment or of the last act of discrimination.
Tribunals have the jurisdiction to award an employee a minimum basic award calculated in much the same way as redundancy payments, a compensatory award to compensate for loss of earnings and they can also order an employee to be re-instated or re-engaged into employment. Discrimination claims if successful have no ceiling and compensation is uncapped.
Representations for your business in employment tribunals will ensure that you are well prepared, fully understand the procedure and rules and offer advice to bring a dispute to the most successful conclusion at the earliest opportunity.
In the event that a dispute cannot be resolved in the workplace and a claim is made by an employee at the employment tribunal we can provide you with expert legal advice with regard from an initial letter to a final hearing to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your business.
