Employment Tribunal hearings closure
We have been notified that, as from Monday 23 March, all Employment Tribunal hearings where the parties were expected to be in attendance at the tribunal have been converted to a case management hearing by telephone or other electronic means due to the Covid-19 pandemic. If the case is listed for more than one day, the parties should proceed on the basis that the remainder of the days have been cancelled.
In effect, this means that all final hearings are likely to be cancelled and Preliminary Hearings will either be cancelled or take place by phone or video link.
