After the complaint
If your problem isn’t solved satisfactorily by using your work's grievance procedures, you may want to take the issue to a tribunal. Not every complaint can be taken to an employment tribunal. If your complaint is about discrimination, you will be able to. If not, look at the employment tribunal website for the full list (see Further help).
Taking your case to an employment tribunal should be a last resort. It can be a stressful and time-consuming process. In practical terms, it will probably destroy your chances of working for your employer again. However, your work shouldn’t be able to get away with discriminating against you and, depending on your case, you may be able to get financial compensation. You should speak to someone with experience of advising on discrimination claims - contact your union, local advice agency or law centre.
If you want to have one last chance to resolve things outside the tribunal, you could consider asking an ACAS officer to try to help you reach a solution with your employer. ACAS is an independent, organisation with authority to assist with employment disputes (see Further help for more). But you still need to make sure you don’t go over your tribunal time limit!
