Beginners Guide to Employment Tribunals
An employment tribunal can be extremely worrying and distressing, regardless of whether you're the employer or employee. We've put together a simple guide on the process of employment tribunals, and how you can make the event as smooth and easy-going as possible in order to come to a consensus.
An employment tribunal hears claims, makes decisions and resolves disputes in points of employment law. You might, for example, wish to make a claim to an employment tribunal if you feel you have been treated unlawfully by your employer, a potential employer or a trade union. Typically, such claims might, therefore, concern unfair dismissal, discrimination, unfair deductions from pay or redundancy payments.
