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.

‘’We first contacted Christopher Kennett in April 2020, regarding a boundary dispute as you can appreciate these things if not dealt with correctly can quickly turn nasty. Christopher came to the site so that he completely understood the situation and was not relying on photographs, which can in some cases be misleading.
