INTRODUCTION TO THE EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL : TRAINING SEMINAR

Post by actinglikeabanker on Tue Jul 11, 2017 2:05 pm

INTRODUCTION TO THE EMPLOYMENT TRIBUNAL : TRAINING SEMINAR

7th October 2010

http://www.7br.co.uk/uploads/7br-emp-series-2010-wk-1---intro-to-emp-tribunal.pdf

Valuable read into employment tribunals, discrimination etc. Gives a good break down of each step of a tribunal and what to expect and do, including guidance on evidence and witness statements.

Provides some case law references (always worth looking for more recent cases though). Overall a easy to understand PDF that is written for junior employment solicitors but can easily be used as a reference for claimants representing themselves in litigation.


EDIT : Fees no longer apply, see posts further down.

HI actinglikeabanker

Most people will never have a chance to go to a Employment tribunal Theresa may said if you want to take a employer to a tribunal you we have to pay,

£950 unfair dismissal

if you just lost job how can you afford it,
then you will wait along time for the tribunal and if you find a new job you have got to lose time of work .

Hey,

Employment tribunals

http://www.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=1889

I posted this on the old site under 'Success Stories'.

@actinglikeabanker wrote:This is not a win in the traditional sense on here but as some of you may have read some of my waffle about a number of court cases I had running.

The long and short of it is they have caved under the pressure and settled for £49,182.

Total cost to me was £250 for the initial tribunal fees. All of the legal work I did myself and represented myself at all preliminary hearings (case management), and it has taken 18 months and a lot, lot, lot of reading to get to this point.

I have learned a lot, if not most of what I used from this site so a big thank you to everyone for that.

As it is a settlement I cant provide actual names of people or companies involved but I do plan on sanitizing as much of it as I can and doing some sort of blog/post about my experiences, what I did wrong/right etc.

I will leave it to the admins if they feel this should go to the total or not.

I can not convince you that you can do anything and, if you create your own barriers then you are just limiting yourself.

I hope you explore all your options and avenues before dismissing any possibilities.

Hey,

I agree, it is almost like they are working against us instead of working for us Smile.

It seems pretty hard to stand up to a system that has perceived unlimited resources to push back but, like you say, 'with help and hard work we can win'.

If we don't work together then in the end, in my eyes, we are 'all' collectively screwed as whilst we squabble amongst each other over scraps thrown from the table, the bigger agendas just keep ploughing forward.

Employment tribunal fees unlawful

Post by jss64 on Wed Jul 26, 2017 12:43 pm

This just in

Employment tribunal fees unlawful, Supreme Court rules.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-40727400

Fees for those bringing employment tribunal claims have been ruled unlawful, and the government will now have to repay up to £32m to claimants.
The government introduced fees of up to £1,200 in 2013 to reduce the number of malicious and weak cases, but that led to a 79% reduction over three years.
Trade union Unison argued the fees prevented workers accessing justice.
The Ministry of Justice said the government would take immediate steps to stop charging and refund payments.
The Supreme Court found fees ruled the government was acting unlawfully and unconstitutionally when it introduced the fees.
Unison general secretary Dave Prentis said: "The government has been acting unlawfully, and has been proved wrong - not just on simple economics, but on constitutional law and basic fairness too."
He added: "These unfair fees have let law-breaking bosses off the hook these past four years, and left badly treated staff with no choice but to put up or shut up.
"We'll never know how many people missed out because they couldn't afford the expense of fees."
The government had already made a voluntary commitment to reimburse all fees if it was found they acted unlawfully. Fees have raised about £32m since being introduced.
Fees ranged between £390 and £1,200. Discrimination cases cost more for claimants because of the complexity and time hearings took.
The Supreme Court found this was indirectly discriminatory because a higher proportion of women would bring discrimination cases.

It also said that some people would not bring cases to employment tribunals because paying the fees would render any financial reward pointless.
The court's summary added claimants in low or middle income household could not afford the fees "without sacrificing ordinary and reasonable expenditure for substantial periods of time".
TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady said it was a "massive win" for workers.
"Too many low-paid workers couldn't afford to uphold their rights at work, even when they've faced harassment or have been sacked unfairly," she said.
The decision was welcomed by employment lawyer Karen Jackson, who said: "I don't know an employment lawyer who didn't think it was wrong to have fees.
"We all felt that morally it was the wrong thing to do as a barrier to justice."

Very Happy I should be due a cheque soon then, thanks jss64.

Do you mind if I copy your post and add it to an employment thread I started?.

This is the case := https://www.supremecourt.uk/cases/docs/uksc-2015-0233-judgment.pdf

One thing I would suggest is to add your expenses to a claim, either way there will be expenses incurred along with interest payments.

Why should they get away with simply refunding you when their claims were illegal and they benefit collectively from all those fees in interest alone; if it is a civil tort you are allowed to claim all reasonable expenses and add them to your bill.
