Employment Tribunals are normally made up of a panel of three. However, Tribunals do have jurisdiction to consider some types of complaint with an Employment Judge sitting along. These include complaints to enforce a protective award or complaints for failing to pay an award for failing to inform and consult under TUPE.

However claims for a protective award itself (or for an award for failing to inform and consult itself) must by considered by a full Tribunal according to the EAT in Weedon & Richardson v Pinnacle Entertainment Limited.
