employment tribunals

employment tribunals

bodies established by statute that are assigned a jurisdiction in many matters, but not all, relating to employment, especially cases of UNFAIR DISMISSAL. Tribunals consist of a legal chairman and two lay members from each side of industry, and the bulk of the work relates to unfair dismissal cases, redundancy cases and terms of employment. They have jurisdiction in Wages Act cases as well as the courts. They sit all over the country and have issued their own rules of procedure that are designed to be sufficiently informal to allow parties to represent themselves effectively.
