Employment Tribunal contacts
The Employment Tribunals have a public enquiry line to answer your queries, provide information about tribunal publications and explain how the tribunal system works. It cannot give you legal advice, such as advising you on your claim or response.
If you are not sure that your claim is something that an Employment Tribunal can deal with, contact the public enquiry line or ACAS (on 08457 47 47 47 which is open from 0800 to 2000 Monday–Friday and 0900 to 1300 on Saturday)
The enquiry line can only deal with general enquiries, and are unable to action correspondence as they do not have access to case files in order to provide a response.
Public Enquiry Line: +44 (0)845 795 9775

If you have a representative (a person you ask to act on your behalf), all correspondence about the case will be sent to them. And you must pass any further requests for information through the representatives and not straight to us.
