Employment tribunals are now part of the combined Tribunals Service, which is administered by the Ministry of Justice.

There are three ways that an employment tribunal claim may be submitted, namely:

  1. online (see Practice Note: Submission of a claim to the employment tribunal—Presenting the claim (Submitting a claim online))

  2. by post or DX (see Practice Note: Submission of a claim to the employment tribunal—Presenting the claim (Submitting a claim by post or DX))

  3. by hand delivery, but only to certain 'designated tribunal offices', on certain days (see Practice Note: Submission of a claim to the employment tribunal—Presenting the claim (Hand deliver of a claim))

Following the presentation of the claim, the tribunal will notify the parties of the address of the tribunal office dealing with the case (including any fax or email or other electronic address). From then onwards, all documents sent to the tribunal must be delivered to either:

  1. that postal address, or

  2. one of those electronic addresses

The tribunal may subsequently notify the parties:

  1. of any change of the address to be used, or

  2. that a particular form of communication should or should not be used
