- Claiming in an employment tribunal for wrongful or unfair dismissal or other employment related issue is your legal right.
- Preparing your claim can be complex, so it is advisable to be represented by a solicitor.
- We will take care of every step of the process, including assessing any last-minute settlement your employer may offer, so you can make an informed decision.
Employment tribunals are used to make claims against employers, for issues such as wrongful dismissal, unfair dismissal, discrimination and equal pay. As your employer is likely to have legal representation, it is advisable for you to be represented by a solicitor too.
Your solicitor can help you prepare your claim, which is also advisable as the process can be complex and your claim must be submitted within strict time limits. Getting your claim right is crucial because employees will usually only have one chance to present their claim to the tribunal, and you should present this in the most effective way possible.
What happens at the tribunal?
An employment tribunal can seem stressful, as you will probably have to speak to provide your evidence. We can eliminate much of this stress by ensuring you are fully prepared beforehand.
