Five from 5: The Employment Tribunals Handbook


The Employment Tribunals Handbook: Practice, Procedure and Strategies for Success, Sixth Edition is a comprehensive guide to bringing and defending a claim in the employment tribunal. Using a step-by-step structure, with clear examples and illustrations of the rules and principles, it covers every stage from pre-action procedure and protocols through to conducting the hearing itself, as well as the appeal process. 



The Sixth Edition includes coverage of the changes to the tribunal fees structure after the Supreme Court deemed some associate fees unlawful, as well as changes to the rules of procedure and the associated claims process and forms. It provides commentary, practical examples and illustrations of rules and principles to place law and procedure in context, alongside precedents and templates for drafting key documents.



The Employment Tribunals Handbook offers tactical insights to maximise a litigant’s prospect of success and will help the reader to:

  • Commence or defend employment tribunal claims
  • Prepare for and conduct preliminary hearings
  • Negotiate settlement of claims
  • Prepare for and conduct the full hearing
  • Calculate and obtain the appropriate remedy
