What is an Employment Tribunal?
The UK Employment Tribunal is an independent court that makes decisions in legal disagreements around employment law. The Tribunal hear claims from people who think their employer or potential employer treated them unfairly or unlawfully. The Tribunal can hear cases about discrimination, unfair dismissals, unfair pay deductions and more.
Sometimes a disagreement can simply not be solved in-house, and an employee needs to turn to an employment tribunal to help resolve matters. Here you can state your case, and your employer can defend themselves. Employment Tribunals are not as formal as court hearings, but their decisions are legally binding. You’ll be compensated if the Tribunal finds that the employer acted unfairly.
