Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Please can you provide some background information and please can you also tell me how long you had worked there for before retiring? Thank you
OK thank you for your response; please leave it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
The issue is that you are out of time to make a claim now. The tribunal has rather short and strict deadlines for issuing claims and in the case of an unfair dismissal or discrimination claim (which is what you would have had to claim in the circumstances) the time limit is only 3 months. So if all of this happened in 203, you are way out of time to be issuing a claim now – you would basically be time barred from taking this further. As you do not have a claim to take via the county court you cannot use their longer time limits (usually 6 years). Therefore as your only claims would have been through the tribunal and you have now missed the deadline to claim you would not be able to take this any further.
I'm sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you were hoping for, however I do have a duty to be honest and explain the law as it actually stands. This does mean delivering bad news from time to time. I hope you understand and would be happy to provide any further clarification if needed. If you are still satisfied with the level of service you have received I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating by selecting 3, 4 or 5 starts at the top of the page. Thank you
