    What is an employment tribunal and what happens at each stage? 

    Employment tribunals are specialist employment ‘courts’ that provide a means to solving disputes between employees and employers. Tribunals cover a range of cases such as unfair dismissal, discrimination, breach of contract, victimisation, whistleblowing and unpaid wages.

    Tribunal claims are heard by a tribunal panel comprising up to three people; an employment judge, who will run the proceedings; a person representing the employer and a person representing the employee. Some types of cases can be heard by an employment judge without the other panel members.
