Employment Tribunal claim template for breach of contract

Your employment tribunal claim sets the legal and factual basis of your claim. This Guide provides a template and resources to help you write your claim for breach of contract.


Breach of contract claims in the Employment Tribunal are enabled under section 3 of the Employment Tribunals Act 1996 (ETA 1996) and the Employment Tribunals Extension of Jurisdiction (England and Wales) Order 1994 (the 1994 Order), but only after you have left the job.

The time-limit for you to take your case to the Employment Tribunal is 3 months less one day from the effective date of termination or resignation. There is no qualifying period of continuous employment for you to make a breach of contract claim.
