for no obligation advice on employment law claims.
Employment law is complex and one of the fastest changing areas of law in the UK, and there are limited periods within which you can take action. The statutory time limit for starting the employment law claim process is three months less one day from the date of the dismissal (unfair or constructive) or discrimination, except redundancy pay and equal pay claims which are six months less one day. Before you can lodge a claim, you must first notify ACAS (Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) of a potential claim . Determining exactly when discrimination occurred, especially if it was a series of events stretched over time, can be difficult, and it is vitally important to seek legal advice as early as possible.
The ACAS process can last up to a month from the day you notify them you intend to pursue a claim. Seeking early conciliation can extend the overall period in which to make a claim as it effectively suspends the time while ACAS negotiation is taking place.
