About The Employment Tribunals Handbook: Practice, Procedure and Strategies for Success

The Employment Tribunals Handbook offers a comprehensive guide to bringing and defending a claim in the employment tribunal, covering every stage from pre-action procedure and protocols through to conducting the hearing itself.

Fully revised and updated, key developments covered in the new fifth edition include:
The Employment Tribunals (Early Conciliation: Exemptions and Rules of Procedure) Regulations 2014 – employees with a claim can no longer go direct to an Employment Tribunal but must now notify Acas first;
The Employment Tribunals Rules of Procedure 2013 (as subsequently amended up to 17th February 2015);
Recent changes to tribunal fees following the Supreme Court ruling.

Written for the seasoned employment law practitioner, but with a clarity that means it is also of significant use to HR professionals and trade union officials, The Employment Tribunals Handbook provides tactical insights alongside precedents and templates for drafting key documents, so as to maximise a litigant’s prospects of success.
