Why Might An Employment Tribunal Arise?

Employment tribunals may arise in a number of different situations. Often, they will come about due to a disagreement or conflict within the workplace. Some of the more common reasons for disagreement or conflict include:

  • Discrimination: If an employee feels that they have been treated unfairly based on age, gender, race, disability or another protected characteristic, they may claim discrimination.
  • Unfair Dismissal: If an employee feels that they have been dismissed without just cause or a proper dismissal procedure, they can file a claim under unfair dismissal.
  • Breach of Contract: If either party has failed to adhere to the terms of an employment contract, it may result in an employment tribunal hearing for breach of contract.
  • Wage Disputes: Issues surrounding holiday pay, unpaid wages or a discrepancy in salary can lead to tribunal claims being made.

There are many more reasons as to why conflict or disagreement in the workplace can arise.

Potential Outcomes of Employment Tribunals Birmingham

The outcome of an employment tribunal is very much dependent upon the nature of the case and the evidence that has been presented. Some of the possible outcomes can include:

  • Compensation: The tribunal may choose to award financial compensation to the employee for a loss of earnings, injury or feelings or other relevant losses during this time.
  • Reinstatement or Re-Engagement: When a case has been brought for unfair dismissal, the tribunal may order that the employee is reinstated or re-engaged within their previous position, or one that is similar.
  • Recommendations & Declarations: Declarations for parties’ rights can be made as well as recommendations for action steps that employers must take following the case. This may include providing training or updating policies for example.
  • Claim Dismissal: Should the tribunal find favour with the employer, not the employee, the claim will be dismissed, and no compensation will be awarded to the employee.
