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.
Strict time limits apply to employment tribunal claims, so get legal advice without delay.
