Employment Tribunal Claims
Funding for Employment Tribunal claims can often be covered by way of legal expenses insurance which is attached to your hone/content/credit card insurance policies. This is worth checking before seeking legal advice. Time limits have been affected by the ACAS early conciliation scheme which started on 6 April. This is now compulsory for most claims from 6 May. It is important to seek advice quickly.
When you are ready to issue your ET1 form, ensure that it provides the tribunal with a clear and detailed account of your complaint as this will be the first document the tribunal will read. It is important to be as detailed as possible. You need to give a clear account of what your complaint, giving times and dates of events and ensure that your document clear and your paragraphs numbered. Remember that the ET1 must be received at the tribunal office within the time limit, not just be posted. Most claims that arrive late won't be able to continue. If you’re responsible for putting in your own claim, make sure you understand the time limits and ensure that your claim is sent in good time. You do not want to find yourself in a position where you have not acted in a timely fashion. On that basis, it is advisable to seek urgent assistance if you believe you have a claim which needs to be issued in the Employment Tribunal.
