The 3 Month Time Limit Rule for Claims
The majority of claims in the Employment Tribunals must be brought within three months of the date of dismissal or the date of the act of discrimination complained off. That is three months less one day. It is important that you take advice as early as possible in order to safeguard your rights to bring a claim.

The best advice is that if an employee wishes to consult a Legal Adviser they should do so as soon as they are dismissed or suspended, this will give the Adviser time to investigate the case.
The Employment Tribunals can exercise a discretion to extend the time limit in exceptional circumstances. In Unfair Dismissal claims where it was not reasonably practicable for the claim to lodged within the three month period. In Discrimination claims where it would be Just and Equitable to do so.
Remember delay may be fatal to your case, as there are strict time limits for making applications to the Employment Tribunals. Do not delay call 0208 795 8375 today or e-mail us your online enquiry
