What is the Employment Tribunal Process?

After a claim is filed, the Respondent has 28 days to file a defence. When the defence is received the Tribunal will then list the directions which are the steps that must be undertaken by both parties in the run up to the hearing date. The number of days the final hearing is listed for will depend upon the complexity of the case and the number of witnesses that are likely to be involved.

The Tribunals can usually judge by the detail in the claim form and defence forms as to how many days the hearing should be listed for but either party is able to make representations to the Tribunal and ask that the length of the hearing is shortened or extended accordingly.
