Industrial Tribunal
Industrial Tribunals were introduced in 1964 and have powers to hear unfair dismissal, discrimination and other cases in relation to statutory employment rights as well as some breach of contract actions. They usually consist of three people - a lawyer (the chairman), one individual nominated by an employer association and another by the TUC or a TUC- affiliated union. Most cases must be brought within three months of the complained of event.
