Non-legal Members of the Employment Tribunals
This is a non-JAC selection exercise
The Employment Tribunals (England and Wales) and Employment Tribunals (Scotland) are seeking 340 non-legal members across Great Britain including; London, Midlands, North East, North West, Scotland, South East, South West and Wales.
The jurisdiction of the Employment Tribunals involves a wide range of employment-based disputes involving employees, workers, employers, trade unions and professional and regulatory bodies.
There are currently more than 90 different causes of action that can be brought to the Employment Tribunals. The most common complaints involve allegations of unfair dismissal, discrimination, breach of contract, deductions from wages, transfers of undertakings and detriments for making disclosures in the public interest. A small number of rights differ in Scotland and Wales as a result of devolution arrangements.
An Employment Tribunal may consist of an Employment Judge sitting alone or sitting with two non-legal members. When non-legal members are sitting on the panel, one is drawn from the panel of those whose experience is from an employee or trade union perspective (the 'employee panel') while the other is drawn from the panel of those whose experience is from an employer or management perspective (the 'employer panel').
