Is It Worth Taking A Dispute to the Employment Tribunal?
Are you aware that in many situations you have the right to make a claim to the Employment Tribunal about your employment dispute? The type of employment dispute that can be heard at an Employment Tribunal includes unfair dismissal, racial discrimination, breach of contract and equal pay claims.
The Employment Tribunal is responsible for hearing claims from people who believe their employer or potential employer has treated them unlawfully. They make decisions about unlawful employment disputes.Employment Tribunal Process
Employment Tribunal proceedings have become more formal and legalistic over the years, and as a result, it has become more important for employees to be represented or supported by an experienced employment lawyer.
The employment solicitors at ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan in Edinburgh, will always review your case carefully at the outset and advise you on the scope of your employment law claims. They will tell you which claims they believe have reasonable grounds for success, and which are less strong. If they believe you have a strong case they will support and represent you throughout the Employment Tribunal claim.Employment Tribunal Legal Fees
