Bringing a claim in the Employment tribunals

Although the employment tribunal system was set up for individuals to represent themselves, the procedure is complicated and your employer is likely to have legal representation.

There are many types of claim that you can bring in the employment tribunals. The most common claim is for unfair dismissal.

The majority of claims should be brought within three months of your dismissal, or the act over which you are complaining. Except in very unusual circumstances, this time limit must be observed.

The first step is to go through the pre-claim conciliation process with Acas. If this is not successful, we can prepare your employment tribunal case and, if there is no settlement, represent you at the hearing.

If you want to limit your costs, we can assist you in preparing your case and coach you in representing yourself.
