Bishopsgate Law employment law solicitors can give advice about employment tribunal claims and represent claimants at the tribunal.
There are many different claims that can be brought before an employment tribunal, including unfair dismissal, if you have been employed by the same employer for more than two years, in most cases, and discrimination, for which there is no qualifying period required.
Compensation for unfair dismissal consists of a basic award, which is related to statutory redundancy payments, plus a compensatory award. The maximum amount for compensatory awards is index linked but in unfair dismissal cases the employee will usually not be able to recover more than one year’s pay.
Employment tribunals can make unlimited compensation awards in discrimination cases.
We can undertake employment tribunal claims on a contingency fee (No win no fee) basis where we assess the chances of success are good enough.
For more detailed information about these issues please see our free guide to your rights at work.
Strict time limits apply to employment tribunal claims, so get legal advice without delay.
If you believe you may have a case to make an employment tribunal claim, we can make an assessment of your case based on the facts and information you send us by e-mail.
You can arrange an appointment to see an employment lawyer at our offices in London EC2, or Potters Bar, Hertfordshire.
