Employment claims heard by employment tribunals
Employment tribunal hearings can resolve disputes over:
- Unfair dismissal
- Wrongful dismissal
- Constructive dismissal (where the employee resigns due to an employer breaching a contract)
- Failure to follow correct procedure during the disciplinary or grievance process (like not allowing the employee to be accompanied by a colleague or representative at a hearing)
- Equal pay claims
- Discrimination on the grounds of race, age, sex, sexual orientation, religious belief, physical or mental disability
- Victimisation claims
- Whistleblowing claims
An employment tribunal claim should only be necessary when all other resolution methods have been unsuccessful.
Time limits on employment tribunal claims
Usually, you must apply for an employment tribunal to rule on your 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 beyond this deadline.
