A claim to an employment tribunal claim is only necessary when all other resolution methods have not resolved the situation. Tribunals have a wide jurisdiction encompassing claims such as:
- Unfair dismissal;
- Constructive dismissal (this is where an employee resigns because they feel that their employer has materially breached the contract of employment);
- Failure to consult an employee in advance of a redundancy situation;
- Discrimination relating to race, age, sex, sexual orientation, religious belief or physical or mental disability.
Time Limits on Employment Tribunal Claims are strict. The basic position is that a claimant must make an application to bring an employment tribunal claim within three months of the date of termination of employment or three months of the date that the incident giving rise to the claim occurred.
This is a complex and continually changing area of law and we would strongly advise that you seek legal advice. The team at Rowlinsons have considerable expertise and experience in this area and can assist you with Tribunal claims at all stages. We can also arrange for representation at hearings.
