Following employment tribunal procedures: keep calm and take your time

This briefing from Nabarro looks at a few simple steps that employers can take to reduce the risk of employment tribunal claims and to increase the chance of successfully defending them.

Taking those steps should allow you to:

  • run your business more efficiently and let managers focus on more productive issues;
  • deal with difficult employee situations in a manner that should prevent you from darkening the tribunal’s door, or let you leave the tribunal with your head held high;
  • avoid the frustration and adverse publicity of public criticism in an employment tribunal for failure to follow due process; and
  • avoid having to pay out a large sum to settle a procedurally unfair dismissal claim where an ex-employee was a poor performer, guilty of misconduct or whose role was genuinely redundant…
