Check the time limits for bringing employment tribunal claims

Key points

  • There are relatively short time limits for bringing a claim to an employment tribunal. Different time limits apply for different types of claim.
  • Where relevant, time limits are extended to enable early conciliation to take place.
  • Employment tribunals have some discretion to extend time limits, but this discretion is subject to significant limitations. If a claimant misses the deadline for submitting a claim, it is unlikely that he or she will be able to pursue it.
