How long does an employment tribunal case take to complete?

Minster Law

This depends on the complexity of the case and the geographical area the claim is brought in. There are regional employment tribunals all over the UK and the speed with which they deal with cases can vary enormously. However, on average we would estimate that a basic unfair dismissal case may take around 12 months to complete, while a more complex discrimination matter may take around 18-24 months to complete. If the matter is settled via negotiation, then the timescale may be less than this.
