Making or Defending a claim in the Employment Tribunal: why you need to keep your claim/defence brief

In this week’s episode of the Podcast I am pleased to say it is a break from furlough and covid related news. When you make a claim in the tribunal or if you defend a claim you need to set out in writing the details of your claims or defence. In this episode I bring you some useful tips on making or defending a claim in the Employment Tribunal following a recent decision of the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

In this episode I will cover:

  • What the case of C v D UKEAT/0132/19/RN says about making a claim and keeping it brief.
  • Some tips on making your case.
  • Some tips on preparing your defence.
  • Why my colleague got a ticking off from the Employment Tribunal after the judgement in the C V D case.
