Employment Tribunal

The employment tribunals are an independent judicial body established to resolve disputes between employers and employees over employment rights. The tribunal will hear claims about employment matters such as unfair dismissal, wages, discrimination, and redundancy.

Similar to a court, employment tribunals aren't as formal, no one wears a wig or gown, and like a court they cannot give out legal advice. Most hearings are open to the public, and evidence will be given under oath or affirmation, and if anyone was to lie in court they can be convicted of perjury.
