Employment Law Time Limits

Lawson-West’s expert employment solicitors and lawyers have significant experience with employment law time limits. 

  • In order to bring an Employment Tribunal claim for compensation you will need to enter into ACAS Early Conciliation within three months of your termination date and/or the last date when you believed your were discriminated. 

  • See our Time Limitation Calculator

This process essentially acts as a ‘stop the clock’ on the usual Tribunal time limit until the day that you receive a certificate confirming that the process has completed. 

Principally where Early Conciliation is not successful you will then have the right to present a claim within one calendar month to the Employment Tribunal however dependant upon when you engaged ACAS’s assistance will depend on the actual date for presentation of your claim, therefore it is important to seek specialist advise and assistance from the point you receive the certificate, or sooner where possible.   

If you do not enter into the Early Conciliation process within three months starting from the date of your termination and/or last act of discrimination you will be denied the right to advance any claims and be stopped from entering into any litigation.   

It is therefore essential if you believe that you have been or are being treated unfairly, that you seek specialist legal advice straightaway to avoid any uncertainty.
