What is an employment tribunal?
Tribunals have been described by the higher courts as "Industrial juries". This reflects:
- Their composition - a full tribunal consists of a chairman and two lay members. The Chairman must be a solicitor or barrister of not less than seven years standing who is appointed by the Lord Chancellor. The two lay members will have experience acting for and representing the interests of employees and employers, ensuring that the composition of the Tribunal is as balanced as possible.
- Their knowledge and experience of the workplace.
- The extensive latitude that tribunals are afforded, provided they properly apply the law, to decide issues of fact.
