Can I withdraw my complaint?

New law in force

The Equality Act came into force on 1 October 2010. Some of the information on this page may be out of date.

Yes, you can withdraw your complaint at any time. However, the longer you leave it before withdrawing, the greater the possibility that you might have to pay the respondent's legal costs.

The tribunal can, at any time, order the case to be struck out or amended if they think it is unreasonable, or of they think you are just trying to make trouble.
