This new edition has been updated, and extensively rewritten for ease of use. New features of this edition include:
a reworking of most of the precedents to fit into one of two main cases through which the reader can follow the process from the drafting of the ET1, through interlocutory steps, to preparation for the hearing, the hearing itself and finally an appeal;
guidance on getting the most out of your adviser;
substantial new material on preparing for a hearing;
enhanced guidance on drafting claims and witness statements;
detailed advice on preparing a schedule of loss;
guidance on the practical consequences of the abolition of the statutory dispute resolution regime.
There is depth and variety to give reassurance to beginners in the field, and its accessibility and clarity make it ideally suited for trade unionists, non-specialist advisers, volunteer tribunal representatives, lawyers at an early stage in their careers, and claimants representing themselves. Employment Tribunal Claims also serves as an excellent occasional resource for the established practitioner looking for some borrowed experience of a particular tactical problem, or for harassed solicitors wanting to point their clients to an accessible source of answers to employment tribunal FAQs.
