The Employment Tribunal Process: Case Management Hearing

Step by step guidance on the Employment Tribunal Process

In this episode 193 of the podcast I bring you the third in a mini series covering step by step guidance on the Employment Tribunal process. This is applicable for both employees who may want to make a claim and employers who may be defending a claim.

This third episode is about what happens at the Case Management or Preliminary Telephone Hearing:

  • The purpose of the case management hearing.
  • The preparation needed for the telephone hearing.
  • Why it is important to complete the agenda supplied by the Tribunal.
  • Why you should try to agree the agenda with the other party.
  • What information you need to hand for the hearing.
  • Why you need to know what your dates of availability are like, not just for a hearing but for the preparation required.
  • The importance of understanding the case facts and which basis in law you are bringing your claims
  • Why you should speak up if you do not agree or not understand something in the hearing.
  • The importance of checking the paperwork from the Tribunal after the hearing.
  • Why it is worth getting some legal advice at this stage of the process.
