Time Limits

 

Take action

There are very strict time limits in Employment Tribunal cases. Most claims must be received by the Employment Tribunal within 3 months of the date of the act you are complaining about. This means, for example, that you must lodge your claim with the Employment Tribunal within 3 months of the date of your dismissal (in unfair dismissal cases) or within 3 months of the date of discrimination (in discrimination cases). If you miss this deadline, you may be unable to take your claim any further. It is therefore essential that you send details of your claim to us in good time so that we can consider it carefully.
