Employment Tribunals can handle compensation claims for unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal, workplace harassment, discrimination, unlawful deductions of wages, wrongful dismissal, and any other employment disputes.
If you have a dispute with your employer, you should try to resolve this internally by submitting a formal written grievance, in accordance with your employer’s formal grievance procedure. If the problem is still not resolved, it is highly advisable that alternative methods of dispute resolution are attempted before bringing a claim in the Employment Tribunal. Such methods could include mediation, conciliation or arbitration. In many cases, a settlement agreement can be reached outside of the Tribunal, that both parties to the dispute are happy with.
Any claim being pursued through an Employment Tribunal must be initiated within three months, less one day, of the date of the dispute that has given cause to the claim, such as the original date of dismissal, or the date of a discriminatory act.
In cases involving a series of incidents, such as discrimination, harassment, or unlawful deductions of wages, the time limit may apply from the date of the latest incident.
An Employment Tribunal is very similar to a court in respect of the process involved in making a claim. At the end of the process, a hearing would take place, during which time legal arguments are put forward, with a decision then being made based on the evidence.
If an Employment Tribunal decides in favour of a Claimant, the employer may be instructed to give the Claimant their previous role back (re-instatement), provide a different role (re-engagement), or make a compensation payment. In most cases, the Tribunal will order an employer to make a payment of compensation.
