Our expertise

Typical examples of cases brought up in the Employment Tribunal include:

  • Redundancy issues (we also offer employment settlement agreement representation)
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Constructive dismissal (where an employee leaves their job because their employer was in breach of contract)
  • Workplace harassment, including bullying, or racial harassment or sexual harassment.
  • Workplace discrimination on the grounds of age, sex, sexuality, maternity, race, religion, belief and more.

It may seem daunting to pursue a claim in the Employment Tribunal, but our team of friendly and supportive solicitors will be with you every step of the way. In most cases, you must bring your claim in the Employment Tribunal within 3 months of the event occurring. For advice prior to and on submitting a tribunal application, please call our employment team on +44 (0) 208 092 2700, where we can discuss opening an ACAS Conciliation Process and a strategy to ensure that we receive the desired outcome.

Litigation in the Employment Tribunal should always be a last resort. At Barnes Law we have ample experience with resolving matters through alternative means such as mediation, removing the need to litigate.

Constructive and unfair dismissal

Constructive dismissal (also known as constructive unfair dismissal) occurs when you have been forced to end your employment due to the way that your employer has treated you, leaving you with no other choice.

Unfair dismissal occurs when you have been dismissed without a fair or legitimate reason, such as conduct, capability or redundancy. You must have been employed for at least two years to bring forward a claim of unfair dismissal.

These claims require a lot of evidence as well as witness statements to support your claim. Bringing constructive and unfair dismissal claims should only be done with careful consideration. For advice and consultation on whether or not you may have a case, please call our expert and friendly employment litigators on +44 (0) 208 092 2700 or email us at info@barnes-law.co.uk to discuss your situation.
