Employment Tribunal

If a dispute between an employer and employee cannot be resolved through negotiation or conciliation, an employee is entitled to take the matter to an employment tribunal. These independent judicial bodies may not be as formal as going to court but they still follow an adversarial process where one party is pitched against the other. The tribunal also has vast powers when it comes to remedies, meaning much is at stake for both employees and employers both parties therefore need to be organised and well prepared for the tribunal hearing.

In July 2017, the UK Supreme Court ruled that employment tribunal fees were unlawful, which means employees no longer have to pay tribunal fees to make a claim and those who did make a claim and paid a fee may be due a refund. It also means that employees who wanted to make a claim between July 2013 and July 2017 but didn’t because of the cost of the fees may be able to make a late claim. If you’re an employee looking for guidance on making a late claim, or an employer concerned that a late claim may be brought against you, we can help.
