Representation at the Employment Tribunal

Claims in the Employment Tribunal may seem like a daunting and complicated process both for employers and employees. At Eric Robinson Solicitors we guide you through the process every step of the way so that you know what to expect and how to prepare.


An employee who brings a claim against an employer is normally referred to as the ‘Claimant’.  The employer is referred to as the ‘Respondent’. 

Tribunals place a great onus on employees and employers following the Acas Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures, even though it’s not in itself a law. If the tribunal finds that either the employee or employer has failed to follow the Code, any award can be increased or decreased by up to 25%. 

So it’s very important that both employers and employees take advice on the procedures, which should be followed in order to avoid any potential penalties. 

Tribunal claims can be extremely time-consuming and complex. At Eric Robinson Solicitors we advise employees and employers on all aspects of the litigation process, including representing clients at hearings.  Contact us today.
