If you are involved in a dispute with your employer and have exhausted all reasonable steps to resolve the problem in the workplace, our skilled FDR employment lawyers can help you take your case to the next stage – an employment tribunal.
Whether your issue is a result of a specific grievance or a disciplinary problem, we can give you friendly, jargon-free advice and representation to secure the best possible outcome at a tribunal.
Employment tribunals are independent judicial bodies with the power to pass judgement on disputes over employment rights and their decisions are legally binding. We will explain how best to present your case and ensure you’re fully prepared for the hearing - supporting you with everything from documentation to obtaining witness statements.
Issues heard by an employment tribunal include:
- Equal pay disputes
- Breach of contract
- Unfair dismissal
- Constructive dismissal (where an employee feels forced to resign because an employer has breached their contract)
- Failure to consult prior to redundancy
- Discrimination relating to race, age, sex, religion or disability
- Failure to follow correct disciplinary or grievance procedures
There is a three month time limit on making a claim, so don’t delay and call us today for a confidential, no obligation chat on 01925 230000. Further information can be found in our Client Guide - Representing you in an Employment Tribunal Claim
