What Do Employment Tribunal Proceedings Entail
You will need to prepare and file a claim form that should be as thorough as possible, within strict time limits. Failure to do so could mean that the Employment Tribunal rejects your claim.
If your employer's response is accepted, the Employment Tribunal will make directions for the management of the claim. These will normally involve you:
- Disclosing all relevant documents, witness statements, etc
- At any stage, making or responding to applications to the Employment Tribunal
- Conducting a final hearing or sometimes a pre-hearing review followed by a final hearing
All the above can be time-consuming and complex. Worse, failure to comply with an order made by the Employment Tribunal or acting unreasonably, disruptively or continuing with a claim that is misconceived can result in a costs awarded against you or even result in your claim being struck out.
If the claim proceeds to a final hearing, failure to prepare an adequate case may lead to it being unsuccessful.
That's why it is essential to seek legal advice from a team of expert employment tribunal lawyers.
