What is an Employment Tribunal?
Employment tribunals are independent judicial bodies with the power to resolve disputes over employment rights. Tribunal proceedings are not as formal as courts but the decisions they make are legally binding.
Time limits on Employment Tribunal Claims?
Usually you must apply to the employment tribunal claim within three months of the date that your employment ended or the incident complained of occurred.
In exceptional circumstances, the employment tribunal may accept claims outside this time frame.
