What is an employment tribunal?

An employment tribunal is an independent body that presides over disputes between an employer and employee. They are different to criminal proceedings, as they are limited to imposing fines or penalties. An employment tribunal is used for an employee to seek compensation from an employer.

Your employment law responsibilities

As an employer, you have numerous responsibilities under employment law. These are legal requirements to protect both the employer and employee, covering areas such as pay, discipline, dismissal, discrimination, and more.  

By providing specialist employment advice, we can help to settle employee disputes before they reach an employment tribunal. If the issue has already escalated to this stage or a settlement cannot be reached, our employment  solicitors can guide you through the process on a three-stage fixed fee arrangement or consultancy basis
