Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a time limit for employment claims?
As a general rule, there is a time limit of 3 months less 1 day to issue a claim. The clock starts to tick usually from the date of the incident such as the date of dismissal or the date of an act of discrimination (or the last date in a series of acts).
What steps should I take before a claim is issued at tribunal?
In the vast majority of cases, the Claimant (employee) will need to go through a process with ACAS called Early Conciliation. This process gives the parties an early opportunity to resolve their issues.
Settlement Agreements – what are they and what do they do?
Settlement Agreements (formerly known as compromise agreements) are issued for a wide variety of reasons and can be a useful tool. In return for some form of consideration (usually financial), an employee will agree to waive a number of legal rights giving an employer some peace of mind that they will not be sued.
