This employment law guides explores the basics of the tribunal and conciliation process and offers guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls.
Avoiding an employment tribunal
Of course, the best way to minimise the effects of an employment tribunal is to avoid being served with papers in the first place. To this end, some of the invaluable services Peninsula provides include:
- Robust contracts of employment to cover every eventuality, and other documentation for employment and health and safety
- 24/7 employment law helpline for urgent queries such as disciplinary matters, pay, transfer of business or accusations of discrimination or harassment
- Employer advice on maternity leave, sick pay entitlement, holiday pay and all other types of leave, plus an absence management calendar to keep track of it all
Of course, it’s worth remembering that if you have taken up the insurance option and have taken and followed advice, many of the costs incurred by employment tribunals, as well as awards and settlements, could be covered. This service is ideal for employers who want to be fully prepared for any scenario.
