What Is An Employment Tribunal?

The Tribunals are an independent judicial body to reswolve disputes between employer and employee regarding employment rights. They are intended to be less formal than the ordinary Courts. You will have a preliminary hearing at which point you will be given certain directions regarding documents and Statements and the matter will then generally be listed for a hearing. A case can be settled at any time and ACAs can play a part in that process as well. You must take care to lodge your Application to the Tribunal within three moths of the dismissal. Though that time period can be extended, this is only possible in exceptional circumstances. Costs can only rarely be awarded against either party and this is broadly speaking where it is considered that the party has acted wholly unreasonably.
