If anyone is wondering whether it’s a good idea to take an employer to the Employment tribunals for any kind of claim, they need to have access to legal advice before they start.  Whatever the circumstances of being fired or feeling discriminated against, before anyone makes an official claim, if they’re not a member of a trade union or other representative body, they must check whether they have legal cover in their cmprehensive insurance cover.  If so, they need to be consulted immediately and advice sought.  Taking notes of who said what, when and where is critical when thing appear to turn nasty.  There can never be too many notes.  Seeking witnesses to the occurence or sequence of events;  ensuring names are recorded of those there at the time and within view of it – maybe if an accident, photos on a phone would be appropriate.  Also, being totally honest in all dealings with the legal team.
