Time Limits: It is always important
to act quickly in employment disputes. In almost all cases, claims to the Employment Tribunals must be received by the
Tribunal no later than three months from the date of the last act complained of. The fact that you may be going through
internal procedures (such as appeals or grievances) before bringing a claim in the Tribunal may not entitle you to an extension
of this strict time limit. If you are out of time for bringing a claim you may be left without a remedy.
