An employment tribunal is a type of court which deals with disputes between employers and employees regarding employment law and rights. These issues could include disagreements about wages and salary, redundancy, breach of contract, accusations of discrimination or unfair dismissal. Our team of Employment Law Inverness solicitors are specialists in employment law and can help you if you have a problem with your employer and may wish to make a claim. Alternatively, if a claim has been made against you, our solicitors can advise you on how to respond.
If you make a claim in an employment tribunal, a hearing will take place. This operates like a normal court case, with witnesses being called and evidence being presented. You will prepare your claim before the hearing with the help of a solicitor from our Inverness offices. At the end of the hearing, a decision (or judicial determination) will be made by the tribunal, which consists of three people, an employment judge and two laypeople.
You usually need to make a claim within three months of the incident, so if you think that you have a case to present to the employment tribunal you should consider contacting one of our lawyers without delay to find out what your rights are. You may, for instance, be entitled to financial compensation, or your employer may be forced to adhere to the employment tribunal’s ruling. Our solicitors will examine your case to see whether you have a likelihood of making a successful claim. When you come to our Inverness offices you must make sure that you show the solicitor any relevant documentation or evidence that could help your claim, including evidence of the time or date of any incident, any witnesses, and any other information you may need. Our solicitors will be able to advise you on what you may need to present. You may, for instance, be able to submit a questionnaire to your employer.
Making a claim to an employment tribunal can be stressful. Remember, many claims are successful, and you can find out whether or not you have a strong case by taking legal advice from our experienced solicitors before you proceed.
