You can find out more about how to bring an Employment Tribunal case against your employer from the Employment Tribunal itself.

They have information that tells you how to fill in the right form, and what to expect once you have made a claim.

Your claim will not be accepted unless you have an early conciliation certificate from ACAS.

This applies to England, Scotland and Wales, although occasionally tribunal procedures themselves are different in England, Wales and Scotland.
