Employers have found themselves barred
from being able to defend a claim against their businesses because they have not complied with Employment Tribunal regulations that they did not know or understand or have fallen foul of deadlines set by the Employment Tribunal in formal Orders.
Employers’ Champion will guide you through the legalistic Employment Tribunals Regulations and ensure your business complies, for example, with disclosing relevant documents, preparing bundles of documents, drafting witness statements and acting in accordance with Employment Tribunal timetables.
Careful preparation of witness statements for the Employment Tribunal is essential. Witness statements establish or destroy the credibility of the witnesses and the employer and can win or lose the Tribunal case.
They have to be drafted according to the Employment Tribunal’s specifications; too much in and the Employment Tribunal may not see the important issues of, say, the disciplinary process; too little and you may be barred during the Employment Tribunal hearing from providing vital evidence to it about a grievance procedure the company carried out.
