Our employment law solicitors help people who have been treated unfairly in the workplace. We’ll clearly outline your options and help you to decide if a tribunal hearing is the right course of action for you.
Employment tribunals are usually made up of a panel that includes an employment judge and two non-legal people who have business experience. A tribunal can be used to address a wide number of issues ranging from discrimination in the workplace to unfair dismissals. Both the employer and the employee may use witnesses to provide supporting evidence and after hearing the case, the panel will reach a decision which is legally binding.
At Hopleys GMA Solicitors, our knowledgeable employment solicitors are here to support and guide you throughout the entire process. We will explain how best to present your case and will ensure you are fully prepared for the hearing - supporting you with everything from documentation to obtaining witness statements. We’ll clearly outline all of your options from the start so that together we can plan the best course of action. We’ll make sure you are represented fairly throughout the tribunal hearing and will ensure that you always understand what is happening at every step.
However you decide to proceed, it’s important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. You only have three months from the date of your dismissal or the date the unfair treatment last occurred to make an application for a tribunal hearing.
We’re on hand to answer any questions you may have and identify the right course of action. So for expert, confidential, friendly advice about employment law and workplace disputes, contact us today on 01978 880 276.
