What is an employment tribunal?


Employment tribunals are independent tribunals in England, Wales and Scotland. They have jurisdiction and authority to hear disputes between employees and employers.

The aim of the tribunal is to resolve disputes over employment rights. The employment tribunal addresses issues surrounding unpaid wages, unfair dismissals and redundancy payments.
