Employment Tribunals hear disputes between an employer and employee that have been unable to be resolved by other means. They usually deal with cases brought by employees who believe their employer has treated them unlawfully, although a job applicant or trade union can also bring a claim.
Employers can also bring claims against employees if an employee has breached a company’s disciplinary rules.

Employment Tribunal Legal Advice
Claims that do end up at an Employment Tribunal can be heard over the phone, by video or in person. An agenda and checklist will be sent out in advance so that you can gather the relevant documentation, paperwork and witnesses to support your case.
There are usually two stages to an Employment Tribunal hearing:
- Preliminary hearing. This is usually conducted by a single employment judge and is an opportunity to understand the facts of the case and make sure that everything is in order should it progress.
- Final hearing. Once a claim has been fully prepared, it will then progress to the final hearing. Final hearings usually take place in person, and all parties, or their legal representatives, must attend. The hearing will usually be conducted by one judge sitting alone, although for more complex cases, a panel of three will hear the claim. They will then hear all the evidence before reaching a verdict.
If an Employment Tribunal makes a decision that you are unhappy with, or you think there was an error in law or the correct procedure was not followed, you can appeal.
