  • Time limits are strictly applied in the Employment Tribunal. If you miss your time limit you will not be able to proceed with your claim.
  • Most time limits are 3 months from the date of the event you are complaining of. 3 months is calculated by counting the date of the event you are complaining of as the first day of the 3-month period.
  • Time limit calculation includes all days, and not just working days.
  • Use the Time Limit Checklist to make sure of the correct period to insert before you use the calculator.
  • If your Employer’s conduct extends over a period, the time limit runs from the date of the last act that you are complaining of.
  • Where you have more than one claim, calculate the time limit for every single act that you are complaining of.
  • Time limits are extended by the requirement for ACAS Early Conciliation.
