Employment tribunals determine disputes between employers and employees over employment rights.

Employment tribunals hear claims about matters to do with employment, including:
  • unfair dismissal (not applicable to police officers)
  • redundancy payments and
  • discrimination.

They also deal with a range of claims relating to wages and other payments. You can get a full list, called a jurisdiction list, from any local tribunal office or the Employment Tribunals public enquiry line

England & Wales: 0300 123 1024
Scotland: 0141 354 8574:

If you are not sure that your claim is something that an Employment Tribunal can deal with, contact the public enquiry line or ACAS on 0300 123 1100 open from 8am to 8pmMonday to Friday and 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

An Employment Tribunal is like a court but it is not as formal; for example, nobody wears a wig or gown. However, like a court it must act independently and cannot give legal advice. Almost all hearings are open to the public.
