Employment Tribunal our Solicitors can advise and support you.
What is an Employment Tribunal?
If you are engaged in a dispute with your employer or ex-employer and you don’t feel you can come to an appropriate agreement, an employment tribunal can help to make a decision about how to resolve the issues.
Such disputes could include cases arising due to unfair dismissal, harassment, discrimination in the workplace, a breach of employment rights or redundancy. However, this is not an exhaustive list of issues that an employment tribunal could assist you with.
The Tribunal itself will likely be held in an office local to you (in Kent we have hearing Centres in Croydon and Ashford) and your employer, and there will normally be three members of the Tribunal who will make a decision based on the evidence they will hear.
The board comprises of an employment judge, someone who represents employer organisations and someone who represents employee organisations. They are all neutral and none of them will know you or your employer personally.
How do I bring a claim to an Employment Tribunal?
There are many things to consider before you bring a claim to an Employment Tribunal, including the type of issue you are raising, the impact it has had on your health and wellbeing, the Early ACAS Conciliation process that needs to be followed before you can make a claim and whether you are within certain timescales to bring the claim itself.
It’s important to understand your legal rights when it comes to bringing a claim to an Employment Tribunal, which is where our dedicated team at Jarmans can assist you.

From the moment I instructed Jarmans Solicitors I felt confident this would be a quick and seemless purchase, unlike my previous Solicitors! Sonia Thrower in particular was amazing at keeping me updated throughout.
We have just successfully purchased our first home with the help from Sonia Thrower at Jarmans. We are very impressed with the service that we received, at first we were quite worried as the person that was given our case had left and Sonia took over at very early stages. With our purchase it was very different to normal as we also had land attached to our property where it started to get a little confusing with title numbers etc
