When do you need to respond to the claimant?

When an employee, who has been employed for at least 2 years, has been dismissed they can request a written statement outlining the reasons for which they were dismissed. As an employer, you must provide this statement within 14 days of the dismissal.

What is an Employment Tribunal?

The Tribunal is an independent body set up listen to any grievance raised at a hearing before deciding on the outcome of the hearing. If the Claimant is successful the tribunal may order that you pay them compensation or to reinstate the Claimant.

ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) will also try to assist in resolving the matter with a process called conciliation. This is where both parties try to resolve the dispute by agreement without the tribunal’s help. This is generally a cheaper method for resolving claims.
